The Ingeokring Autumn Symposium is this year dedicated to the theme:

“Post-mining risk management in the Netherlands”

Four keynote speakers will focus on risk identification and prevention activities to ensure the safety of decommissioned coal mining sites in Limburg:
* ir. Hans Roest, Staatstoezicht op de Mijnen
13:40 The legacy of coal mining in Limburg

Then, a one hour discussion will be broaden to post-mining risk management for new resource extractions in the Netherlands.
The symposium will close at 17:10 and will be followed by drinks.

We trust the symposium will give an interesting and objective insight into “subsurface aftercare” in the Netherlands.
