This webinar focuses on mining geohazard mitigation topics facing operations with a comprehensive look into practical remediation techniques. Attendees will learn proactive steps to take to manage geotechnical hazards, develop remediation strategies for areas of concern and minimize slope and rockfall hazards.
In this session, participants in the webinar should leave with a better understanding of 1) Geotechnical considerations for highwall designs; 2) Highwall / slope remediation techniques and investigation protocols; 3) Rockfall mitigation techniques including stabilization and protection methodologies and 4) Slope monitoring techniques.
The presenter is Dr. Martin Woodard with GeoStabilization International (GSI). Marty Woodard is a professional engineer and professional engineering geologist whose experience includes investigation, design, and implementation of remediation techniques for unstable soil and rock slopes. He has significant experience in rock slope stability, rock slope rating systems, subsurface geology and geotechnical interpretation, landslide investigations, foundation analysis, and geologic reconnaissance. His expertise is in rock mass characterization, rock slope engineering and rock mechanics. Marty has a B.A in Geology from the State University of New York at Potsdam College, M.S. in Environmental and Engineering Geosciences from Radford University (Virginia), and a Ph.D. in Engineering Geology from Kent State University in Ohio. He has authored the Rockfall Hazard Rating Matrix and Rock Slope Design Manual for the Ohio Department of Transportation. He lectures and completes regular training sessions for government agencies such as MSHA and DOT and professionals from the energy, transportation and mining industries.
