Northern Latitudes Mining Reclamation Workshop
August 31, 2015 - September 3, 2015
The Northern Latitudes Mining Reclamation Workshop (NLMRW) is a collaborative effort between Alaska and Northern Canada aimed at shedding light on the unique issues facing reclamationists in the North.
This year’s conference is located in Juneau — one of the most beautiful areas of Southeast Alaska. Come see the massive mountains, scenic glaciers and pristine coast of the Last Frontier. The conference will include field tours of local mines, short courses, technical sessions, and various social events.
This years attendees will have the option of choosing between two exciting short courses being offered, one of which will be on Acid Rock Drainage. The courses will take place on Thursday, September 3, 2015.
Two field tours are being offered — one to Kensington Mine and one to Greens Creek Mine. Both field tours will take place on Monday, August 31, 2015 and require a ferry ride to the mine site. Kensington requires under-ground travel through part of the tour.
Call for papers deadline March 31, 2015.
