October/November 2019 - Bowen Basin Geologists Group Mine Visit
The Bowen Basin Symposium
The Bowen Basin Symposium is held once every 5 years, and fosters the exchange of technical ideas for the solution of common geological problems and challenges; and to maintain an awareness of new technologies. Each symposium has always been a resounding success since its inception in 1985. The next Symposium Beyond 2020: The Future of Coal will be held on 8-10 September 2020 at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre. Please click here to download the flyer.
The 2015 Bowen Basin Symposium was held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 7 – 9 October 2015. The theme was Bowen Basin and Beyond; with an extended focus beyond the Bowen Basin to other coal Basins throughout Queensland, placing a strong emphasis on both the coal mining and coal seam gas industries.
Members can access copies of all Bowen Basin Symposium proceedings through the BBGG website.
