Syd S Peng Ground Control in Mining Award Committee  

The purpose of the Syd S. Peng Ground Control in Mining Award is to provide recognition to individuals that have demonstrated technical and scientific excellence in advancing the understanding of ground control technologies or approaches by either publication or direct applications in the mining industry. The annual award will be given to an individual or a group that :
  1. Has shown insight and understanding of ground control issues by developing concepts, theories or technologies that have been adopted by the mining community, or
  2. Has successfully implemented a ground control design or designs or practices.

The award will be available to individuals/groups that have made such contributions to ground control related to coal and/or non-coal (metals, commodities, etc) or aggregate mines. Ground control is the most important element in mine design. While there have been significant advances in the past few decades, there are still many problems yet to be resolved. The gap between theory and practice is still wide open. In 1981, Dr. Syd S. Peng found the conference series on Ground Control in Mining to promote the field and to narrow this gap. He has also devoted his whole career toward this objective, using coal mines in the United States and throughout the world as his laboratories. In spite of his life long effort, the gap remains. He established this award with the hope of continuing and expanding this effort!
