Presentations discuss the latest developments related to truck-shovel mining
The bi-annual Haulage & Loading conference kicks off May 7, 2017, at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. The event, which features a continuing education program and a small exhibit, caters to professionals involved in surface mining operations with an emphasis on truck-shovel mining methods. Over the course of three days, the technical program offers five tracks: Improving Operations, Haulage Strategies, Fleet Management, Safety & Training and Loading Techniques. In each of the sessions, presenters from the mines and the service side of the business, offer ideas on how to operate open-pit mines more safely and efficiently.
The Wigwam Resort offers a rustic, affordable atmosphere to learn and meet with peers. The full conference registration includes access to all of the presentations and the exhibit area, along with breakfast each morning and two lunches.
In addition to the technical program, Haulage & Loading also offers several opportunities for delegates to mingle with peers. On Sunday morning, before the event begins, E&MJ and Coal Age sponsor a golf outing. In the evening, delegates will enjoy a pleasant desert evening at a casual poolside soiree. What follows is a preview of what conference delegates can expect to see and hear at Haulage & Loading 2017.
