The World Tunnel Congress 2020 has now moved to a digital platform!

True to its commitment to innovation while embracing the “new norm”, the World Tunnel Congress 2020 will now be held fully digital, paving the way for tunnelling academicians and industry players alike to be a part of the world’s greatest meeting of tunnellers, regardless of where they are.

Short for ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress 2020, WTC2020 was initially due to be held in September at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). Recent circumstances set off by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to many cancellations of major events around the world and drove the need to move the World Tunnel Congress 2020 (WTC2020) into a digital platform as a result of global border control, restrictions on mass gathering and the requirement for physical distancing.

Orica’s FRAGTrack™ wins international Good Design Award

Orica’s innovative fragmentation measurement technology FRAGTrack™ has been awarded a Good Design accolade in the engineering category, for outstanding design and innovation.

Dating back to 1958, the annual Good Design Awards recognise and celebrate products or services that have shown excellence in design innovation and impact.

FRAGTrack™, Orica’s automated fragmentation measurement device, accurately and reliably measures rock size and fragmentation following the blasting stage in mining and quarrying. For these sites, optimal fragmentation can greatly reduce energy consumption, improve equipment productivity, and increase production rates – and removes the need for manual sampling to keep team members safe.

Clearer Boundary for Urban Transformation in Kiruna


LKAB has established a clearer boundary for properties that will be affected up to 2035, by which time main level 1365 will have been mined out.

'This means that we can give those who are affected a more accurate forecast. Among other things, the new boundary entails that some 20 buildings will remain in place,' says Stefan Hämäläinen, LKAB's manager for urban transformation.

The boundary that was set in 2004 for the area that will be affected by future mining has now been redrawn based on new data and knowledge concerning LKAB's ground displacements. An important difference is that the theoretical boundary no longer passes through the properties in question, but is now drawn between clear neighbourhood structures inside and outside of the affected zone. The forecast for urban transformation in the longer term is based on a number of factors which are as yet not known; among others, the extent of the mineralizations and future mining plans.

'It is always problematic to draw such theoretical forecast lines for the effects of mining at great depth that will take place decades into the future. However, based on updated data and new knowledge, we have clarified the boundary and done our best to enable LKAB to give property owners a more accurate indication,' says Michael Palo, Senior Vice President Business Area Iron Ore.

Revision of the boundary means that about 20 properties, both private and municipal, for example, the sports centre and the former Thulegården, are now outside the affected zone. These properties will not be affected by LKAB's mining before 2035. At the same time, about another 20 properties near Luossavaara that were previously not affected now fall within the affected zone. Most of these are owned by LKAB. The buildings that will remain will stand in an attractive park setting, not beside an industrial-site fence.

'Naturally, our ambition is that mining should not have a greater impact on the community than is necessary,' says Stefan Hämäläinen, continuing,

'But we have to make it clear that urban transformation does not cease in 2035. It may in future be necessary to increase the rate of transformation as we gain new knowledge of the the extent of the orebody at greater depth. We realize that this entails a degree of uncertainty, but our most important contribution to an attractive Kiruna is to develop the future mining and minerals industry. The best guarantee for a sustainable society is to create jobs and secure welfare for future generations.'
