Dyno Nobel and Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology recently opened registration for the Mining Academy. Styled after the established Quarry Academy program, the Mining Academy is an educational seminar that looks at the full production stream of unit operations. This one is geared specifically toward underground room-and-pillar limestone aggregate producers.

The three-day format includes lectures, workshops, equipment and blast simulators and a field tour. It will give attendees a big picture view of best practices and insights on current and evolving technology for the industry and how it can be used to improve safety, optimize overall production, and save money.

It will take place at the Chateau on the Lake Resort and Convention Center in Branson, Missouri, on April 10-12, 2018. Details of the full course are available on www.miningacademy.com.
