  2. 2. +44 (0)20 7368 9373 +44 (0)20 7368 9377 TEAM@IQPC.co.uk 5 Reasons why this is a must attend event for drill & blast professionals 1Complex exposure to drill & blast engineers with whom you can share successes and learn from failures. 2You’ll notice that the atmosphere is different from other conferences. We actively maintain a reduced vendor ratio, which creates a more intimate environment for knowledge sharing and networking. 3With over 16 industry speakers confirmed at Drill & Blast Europe 2011 we bring together the brightest minds in mining industry who will deliver their first-hand insight into their drill & blast department. 4Supreme networking opportunities that allow you vital face-to-face interaction with industry peers. 5Get direct insight through interactive workshops with key opinion leaders in the field. Who will attend Drill & Blast Europe 2011? Drill & Blast Engineers Drill & Blast Managers Drill & Blast Superintendants Mining Engineers Shot Firers Operations Managers Area Planning Managers Mine Superintendent Principal Mining Engineer Open Pit Operations Manager Underground Mine Manager ”Drilling and blasting is at the core of successful mining, this conference is a great opportunity to meet colleagues and discuss challenges and opportunities within these topics”Jan Kläre, Superintendent Mine Development, Zinkgruvan, Sweden Dear Drill & Blast Professional, Have you got the best drilling pattern and explosive combination in place to deliver the optimum blast? With Europe pushing to become independent in supplying raw materials in upcoming years, we will witness increased investments in new exploration production in mining across Europe. This means an added emphasis on getting the right expertise and techniques in place throughout the entire mining cycle to meet these demands. After speaking to 43 drill & blast engineers in European Mines and their contractors over the last few months it is evident that getting your blast right is of essential importance to mine operators. If just one thing goes wrong during the drill & blast phase, you could be faced with heavy consequences that could slow down your production, harm the environment or even endanger the lives of fellow miners on site. Drill & Blast Europe 2011 will delve deep into the critical approaches you need to ensure you perform the optimum blast. Our outstanding speaker faculty includes Jonny Bagein-Linder, who will discuss how bulk emulsion behaves in bedrock and how this will help you achieve a better blast. In addition Jonny will be running one of our interactive and practical masterclasses on the impacts bulk emulsion has on the environment through leaking. So make sure you sign up for the masterclass as well as the conference. Other key topics on our agenda include: New strategies on how to optimise fragmentation and minimise costs Insights into some of the biggest European mines blasting department Traceability of Explosives directive and how will it affect your mines operations How to improve your design pattern to avoid commodity loss You will learn more at this 2 day conference than you would at a 2 week training course! This gathering will encapsulate the very finest drill & blast professionals as well as newcomers looking to learn from the elite. Mark the date in your diary: January 18th – 19th 2011. Avoid the wait list: places are limited and early registration is highly recommended. Make sure you secure your place at this bespoke industry event. I look forward to meeting you in Stockholm!
