In March 2012 the 1st Expert Discussion in Repository Mining took place in Essen and met high interest by companies, institutions and authorities in the nuclear field. In the meantime the negotiations on the new act for repository site selection are still running. The length of this process demonstrates the difficulty to take into account political, social and procedural aspects of such a procedure adequately and – if possible – in consensus with all stakeholders. The basis of each repository project is to apply innovative mining technology and to optimize it continuously. To continue with the exchange of information and experiences, DMT, DBE TECHNOLOGY GmbH and GNS invited for the
