Engagement Day 2023

EGRU staff and students invited industry, government, and research colleagues to join them for EGRU’s Engagement Day on Friday 3rd of November.

The Engagement Day was an opportunity for EGRU to provide updates on its research and training initiatives, to hear from our industry and research colleagues, and to discuss future directions for EGRU’s activities.

There were presentations from EGRU’s industry members and research staff, and time for informal discussions during lunch and the social event after the presentations.  Presentations focused on new research, concepts and technologies that may contribute to future directions in exploration.  A poster display also provided an overview of recent and current EGRU research projects.

This was a free event with lunch and a social hour at the conclusion of the talks where EGRU staff and students were able to catch up with colleagues.

    es of the mining life cycle.
