This site is a repository of shared and useful information for all researchers within and related to the RockMech research group. We are located at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and part of the Robert M. Buchan Department of Mining. The research network also includes people working in various companies and at other universities in Canada and elsewhere in the world. Many parts of this site are open for all to see but some are restricted to active members of specific research projects.
