Mine Closure 2014

Mine Closure 2014 is an international conference on mine closures and is taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, from 1 - 3 October 2014.

This event provides a global forum for exchanging views and developing capacity to ensure that new mines are designed for closure, old sites are closed economically and societal and environmental impacts are minimised.
