    • Field fill mass blast and stress monitoring before and after exposure and data analysis
    • Laboratory testing on static and dynamic behaviors of backfill
    • Hazard and risk control practices in backfill application
    • Application of new technology and new equipment in mining with backfill
    • Influence of mining with backfill on the mitigation of subsidence related hazards
    • Case studies

The Minefill 2020 – 2021 Committee invites abstract submissions for presentation at the Minefill 2020 – 2021 Symposium 24-28.05.2021 in Katowice, Poland.
