MDEng would also like to congratulate Dr. Oke for being selected as an ARMA Future Leader.
MDEng would like to congratulate Mr. LeRiche for receiving the 2018 ARMA Master’s thesis in Rock Mechanics. Mr. LeRiche was co-supervised by Dr. Kalenchuk of MDEng and Dr. Deiderichs of Queen’s University. A summary of his work was presented at ARMA titled: Estimation of in situ stress from borehole breakout at KGHM’s Victoria Project, Canada.
