Welcome

The Organizing committee of the upcoming 17th North American Mine Ventilation Symposium (NAMVS 2019) in collaboration with The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is pleased to announce the NAMVS 2019 symposium, which will be held at the Montréal, Canada Palais des Congrès from April 28 to May 1, 2019.

Since the first Symposium in 1982, the Underground Ventilation Committee (UVC) has sought to provide mine ventilation engineers and technicians in the underground coal, metal, and industrial mineral mining industry with the latest information and operating practices from the field. The Committee always promoted the exchange of ideas and research in a variety of related areas to include the monitoring of air contaminants, determining fresh air requirements, and producing power efficient ventilation and cooling systems and energy-related topics.

Be in Montreal for 3 parallel technical streams, up to 7 short courses, 16 exhibit booths, networking activities, a banquet and more. 

NAMVS2019 will attract a total of approximately 300 delegates whose networking will extend to the CIM community.
