Launching on the 4th June CPEE is pleased to announce our latest technical one day course, 'Road Haul Design'. With the first course to be staged in Brisbane on June 4 in conjunction with Curtin University, the course has been specifically developed as a result of demand and is ideal for those engineers and engineering technologists working for Consultants, Mining Companies, Contractors and Federal, State, or local authorities impacted by, or involved in haul road development and use.
This Brisbane course will feature Mr Roger Thompson, Professor of Mining Engineering with Curtin University's Western Australian School of Mines who is the co-author of numerous peer reviewed publications in the field of mine haul road design. Roger has also run Australian ARRB mine-site and International workshops in mine road design construction and management. He is also the contributing author of the 2011 SME Mining Engineering Handbook Chapter on Road Design.
