Quarry Academy is set for November 12-14, 2013 in San Antonio

Quarry Academy is all about counting each ton and making each ton count to minimize costs and maximize profit within your quarry, while holding to standards of safety and best practice.

The 3-day technical program not only addresses critical processes within the quarry, it focuses on the relationship between each process, how they systematically interact with one another and how they can be linked to improve overall operational improvement.

Topics include improved safety, drilling, blasting, fines and boulder management, load and haul, fleet management, crushing and screening, the quarrying process, quarry management and unit operation efficiency.
Quarry managers, executives, supervisors and owner/operators on the production and business side of quarry companies could benefit from the program.

Sandvik and Dyno Nobel have assembled a team of expert instructors, each with years of industry experience in quarry and mining operations around the world. The focus will not be on the companies' products, but on the processes within the quarry that drive productivity and improve efficiency.

Cost for Quarry Academy 2013 will be $1350 USD through September 14, 2013. Cost will increase to $1500 USD on September 15, 2013. Once your registration has been accepted, you may pay via credit card or Paypal.

Quarry Academy will be held November 12-14, 2013 in San Antonio at the Omni La Mansion del Rio Hotel. There is a visit to a quarry site on the Wednesday.
