Welcome

Slope Stability 2011, the International Symposium on Rock Slope Stability in Open Pit Mining and Civil Engineering. This specialty meeting will explore recent innovation and key developments in the design, analysis, excavation and management of rock slopes. Slope Stability 2011 will provide a forum for mine owners and operators, consultants, engineers, suppliers and researchers to exchange views on how to promote best practices in slope stability investigations, design, monitoring and management.

Vancouver is a key centre for the open pit mining industry, with numerous mining and consulting companies calling it home. It is also a vibrant, multi-cultural city with breathtaking views of coastal mountains from sea to sky. We hope to welcome you to Vancouver in September 2011 to discuss the challenges we are facing in our profession and the innovative solutions being developed in response to these challenges.
