PSM Stars at ANZ2019

This week, PSM showcased our technical leadership at the 13th Australia and New Zealand Conference on Geomechanics in Perth. PSM authored 14 of 180 accepted papers. This was the highest number of papers by any one organisation at the conference and by all accounts the presentations were outstanding amongst their peers.

Of the four relevant prizes on offer, PSM took out two awards;

  • The Best Paper was awarded to PSM’s Strath Clarke and
  • The Best Paper (YP) High Commendation was awarded to PSM’s James Watton.

Following is a full listing of the papers presented by PSM at ANZ2019 reflecting our dedication to technical excellence applied to projects around the globe.
