The NSW Underground Geotechnical Society (NUGS) was formed in July 2014 to satisfy the demand of an interest group specifically involved in underground coal mine geotechnical engineering. NUGS is a non-profit organisation that has adopted the AusIMM Code of Ethics, with the aim of providing a forum for:

  1. Dissemination of knowledge in relation to rock characterisation, support & mine design, strata management and reconciliation

  2. Sharing and discussing specific industry problems

  3. Identifying, promoting and reviewing research and development

  4. Providing a link between students, educators, geotechnical practitioners and strata support suppliers.



Currently NUGS membership is based on meeting attendance and is currently free of charge.
