Dinner, drinks and a technical symposium with IQA SA

On September 9, 2011, members of the Institute of Quarrying Australia’s South Australian branch will be tempted by the upcoming Technical Symposium, annual general meeting and dinner, if not for its content, then for its location: The National Wine Centre of Australia.
Before the festivities begin (including a wine and cheese tasting) an afternoon of informative technical papers will presented for attendees. Frank McManus from Golder Associates will present his paper “From Discovery to Closure”; Robert Harding of the Housing Industry Association will speak about the impact of the carbon tax on the housing industry; Drew Martin from Orica Quarry Services has a paper on blasting technology environmental controls; Erin McCarthy of Piper Alderman will discuss OH&S national mine safety; Paul Sutton will give an update on the IQA; and Coffeys International’s John Webber will speak about risk as it relates to safety.

The aforementioned wine and cheese tasting takes place after the symposium, and is followed by the IQA’s dinner and AGM. Special guest speaker Paul Lunn will be in attendance, discussing his inspirational work in uncovering what has been described as “the greatest treasure ever”, the wreck of the Nuestra Senora Del Pilar De Saragosa Y Santiago. Lunn faced monsoons, treacherous underwater conditions, crippling court battles and the death of a team member – all trials that he will discuss over dinner with IQA members.

Members can attend the symposium for $66, dinner for $110, or both events for a rock-bottom price of $132.
