Plan to attend the first ever virtual Mine Design, Operations & Closure Conference in 2020.  Due to COVID-19, we have chosen to move the entire conference to a virtual format.  Our main concern is the health and safety of speakers, vendors, and attendees. The conference is scheduled for August 18-20, 2020. Please register below!
