Mine Closure has become an internationally recognized conference series since it was established in 2006. The 10th International Conference on Mine Closure offered a multidisciplinary global forum for exchanging views and developing capacity, to ensure that new mines are designed with closure in mind, and old sites are closed economically, while minimizing environmental and societal impacts.

This was the second time Mine Closure returned to Canada, after a very successful conference in 2011 at Lake Louise that attracted almost 600 delegates. Following on that success, the conference organizers again partnered with the British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation (BC TRCR). Mine Closure 2015 was held in conjunction with TRCR’s 39th Annual BC Mine Reclamation Symposium. The joint event offered delegates a stellar technical program featuring over 100 presentations on the latest scientific developments, as well as insightful discussions on the most pressing issues.

The next Mine Closure conference will be organized by InfoMine and will take place on October 23-26, 2017 in Lima, Peru.
