Integrating your mine design with deep mining rock mechanics can preserve, or even improve, the safety and reliability of a high-stress mine. Trust Golders global team of engineers to help you safely improve the value of your mine. </p><p>Golder is proud to present at the 13th International Congress on Rock Mechanics.</p><p>Engineering Earths Development, Preserving Earths Integrity.</p><p>STRESSED OUT BY GROUND CONDITIONS?JUST ASK GOLDER.</p></li><li><p>5ISBN978-926872-25-4 ISRM2015.com</p><p>THE 13TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF ROCK MECHANICS ISRM CONGRESS 2015</p><p> Iampleasedtoextendmywarmestgreetingstoeveryoneattendingthe13thInternationalSocietyofRockMechanics(ISRM)CongressinMontral,whichisbeingheldinconjunctionwiththeCanadianInstituteofMining,MetallurgyandPetroleum(ICM)Convention.
