The Dubrovnik International ESEE Mining School (DIM) brings together international experts in the field of Mining in the heart of the ESEE Region. Focussing on recent developments within the mining industry and the development of the mining sector, our program aims at transferring new-found, innovative theoretical knowledge, tested in practice, to our participants.Within the thematic workshops and project work the focus lies on direct knowledge transfer from renowned experts to the participants, but also the creation of an open dialogue between students, scholars, researchers, the industry and wider society.
The first edition of the program focuses on the wider societal and economic acceptance of drilling and blasting, by educating mining engineers on the newest innovative, tested techniques on environmentally friendly blasting. Participants will gain the expertise on how to reduce noise, vibration and avoid fly rock in theory and practice and thus be able to carry out mining that is sustainable in the future.
Topics in the 2016 edition will lead from a general introduction to blasting – blasting theory, to fragmentation, to the legal framework of blasting, to blast design, to health safety and the environment and finally to more specific aspects of blasting.
*Programme offer 4 ECTS credits and requirements are seminar paper and practical work.
