The Bowen Basin Symposium was held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 7 - 9 October 2015. The theme was Bowen Basin and Beyond.
Held once every 5 years, the next Symposium will be held in 2020. Each symposium has always been a resounding success since our inception in 1985.
The Symposium fostered the exchange of technical ideas for the solution of common geological problems and challenges; and to maintain an awareness of new technologies.
Topics for presentation cover Geology, Geophysics, Database and Modelling, Coal Quality, Geotechnical, Structure, Resource Estimation, Safety, Hydrogeology, Environment and New Technologies.
As the theme and logo suggest, the Symposium will extend its focus beyond the Bowen Basin to other coal Basins throughout Queensland - placing a strong emphasis on both the coal mining and coal seam gas industries.
Abundant networking opportunities were available around the numerous trade displays, sponsors and at networking functions.
