Symposium update_rev 1

The 44th Annual Mine Reclamation Symposium will be a virtual event, and the Committee is focused on building upon the successes of the 2020 virtual Symposium to deliver an engaging and high quality event.

For the technical sessions this year, the Committee may organize special sessions of the technical presentations if there are multiple paper submissions on certain themes.  We are very interested in receiving submissions related to the topics of:

  • Innovation – Tools & Technology
  • Collaborative & Holistic Planning Projects (including with government, community and/or indigenous peoples and potentially planning for climate change)

Please note the deadline for the abstract is May 3, 2021 and papers are due July 5, 2021.

All paper submissions are welcome regardless of reclamation topic, as always.  To support the potential for special sessions, the abstract deadline has been extended until May 3rd.  If you have any questions related to paper submissions please contact Lauchlan Fraser at (Lfraser@tru.ca ).

In addition, the Committee may be able to host a Case Studies series if there are multiple submissions on the themes outlined above.  If you have a Case Study that you would like featured, please reach out to TRCR chair Alison Burton (alison.burton@teck.com) to discuss. Lastly, we are also pursuing more virtual mine tours to highlight during the Symposium this year.  If you would like to feature your site or project, please reach out to Alison Burton (alison.burton@teck.com) to discuss.

We are looking forward to connecting with you all virtually soon, and are very much looking forward to the return to in-person events in the future.

Please e-mail abstracts (maximum 300 words) by May 5th, 2021 to:

Lauchlan Fraser, Thompson Rivers University

E-mail: lfraser@tru.ca

Final papers are due by July 5, 2021.
