The Institute of Mine Seismology (IMS) is the leading provider of microseismic monitoring technology to mines world wide. IMS is an independent private research organization focused on developing methodologies, technologies and services for monitoring and modelling the seismic rock mass response to mining.
Since its inception in 1990, IMS has held an annual Mine Seismology Seminar at its locations around the globe. After the successful 27th annual IMS Seminar in Sudbury earlier this year, IMS will host a Mini-Seminar on Microseismic Monitoring in Mines in Stellenbosch. The event complements the AfriRock 2017 programme: it is an opportunity for regional and international users, practitioners and researchers to meet and discuss the latest seismological analysis techniques and technology in mining.
The IMS Mini-Seminar takes place on 2 October, while the AfriRock 2017 technical sessions take place 3 – 5 October. Transport to and from the Cape Town International Convention Centre to the IMS Mini-Seminar in Stellenbosch can be arranged.
