This course is for anyone who needs to interface with the mining industry: suppliers of equipment and services, government and regulators, administrative and support staff. In short, anyone who needs answers to questions like the following. Do you know who Robert Friedland is? Or Ivan Glasenberg? Do you know what Escondida is? Or where it is? Or Oyu Tolgoi? Or Grasberg? What is NI43-101? … The Equator Principles? … Copiapo? … Bre-X? … PDAC? What percentage of GDP in Australia is accounted for by mining and mineral processing? If you complete this course, you will. You won't learn everything about the technical aspects of mining, but you will learn what is current, topical and important in today's mining scene. In short, you will get a comprehensive overview of the mining industry. And you will get links to sources of information where you can find everything else. We hope that you will find the course so useful that it becomes your gateway for information on any mining topic. Course content has been updated to June 2020 mining industry news, events and, where available, information. Authors Julian Houlding (Co-Author) Simon W.

This course provides a non-technical introduction to the use and management of cyanide on a global basis. The course is designed to provide the global picture of cyanide use and how it compares with other chemicals used around the world. Cyanide is used in gold mining operations, however, there is much confusion regarding the real impact of cyanide use in mining. This course attempts to dispel the myths and mysteries surrounding cyanide and provide reliable facts and figures. The course begins with an examination of the production, use, treatment, and transportation of cyanide worldwide, followed by discussions of its technical properties, risks, and management. Subsequent courses in the Cyanide Management in Mining series detail specific technical aspects highlighted in this introductory course.

This is a concise course on rock engineering for non-engineers in mining. The course addresses rock engineering issues for personnel of mining companies who are not directly involved in mining: people like managers, metallurgists, field geologists... even accountants, secretaries and lawyers. This course has been given to mining companies and mining operations around the world, primarily so that non-engineering personnel can understand what operations personnel need at the mine site level. The goal is to give non-engineering personnel an appreciation of the volume of rock failures and their implications.   A Rock Engineering Primer for Non-Engineers in Mining consists of 7 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, tables and examples, plus interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 3 hours of viewing content.

This course, taking into account developments in the field of quality management in the mineral industry during the last 10 years, provides an in-depth assessment of the various factors affecting quality, and then outlines a rational path to implementing and sustaining improvement programs. The course is especially pertinent as it addresses the all-important sustainability issue in collaboration with the Continuous Learning Group (CLG), which has been a world leader since 1993 in behaviour-based strategy execution and performance improvement consulting. Part 4 of the course, which was contributed by CLG, elaborates on tried-and-true methodologies to encourage behaviour changes that will establish an enduring culture that supports continuous improvement (CI) initiatives. In addition, the course highlights other factors that are critical to the successful implementation of CI programs. The course is specifically tailored for the requirements of the mineral industry. Unlike other industries, mining companies do not compete on the basis of product quality. Because the prices for commodity-grade products are determined by the market, a company's control over its profitability stems largely from its ability to minimize production costs. The course emphasizes the strategic need for a company to remain viable by continuously driving costs down, and positioning itself in the lower quartile of the cost curve. The course focuses on the following aspects needed to successfully implement a CI program: Part 1: Establishing a culture that enables mining companies to continuously emphasize cost reductions by minimizing waste and eliminating non-value-added activities. Part 2: Transforming organizations by forming partnerships between customers and suppliers (both external and internal), and improving costs through cross-functional problem-solving teams. Part 3: Encouraging cooperative behaviours to facilitate teamwork, and providing training in various group decision-making techniques to motivate employees to participate in continuous cost reduction efforts. Part 4: Stressing the role of leadership to remove internal barriers that act as hindrances, and embed a CI culture to sustain the process by actively managing individual behaviour through monitoring of key performance indicators. The course is designed for engineering, operating and administrative personnel, as well as senior executives—in fact, for all stakeholders whose participation and commitment are essential to the success of any CI initiative. It draws on leadership and cultural issues that are critical to motivate individuals to buy into the program. Practical suggestions are provided on how to structure and sustain implementation efforts. The course goes beyond the traditional approach and addresses how individuals, far from being mere spectators, can be empowered to take the critical actions that drive continuous improvement. This is a premium course which has been peer-reviewed by a committee appointed by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) and the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME).

Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) Prediction provides an introductory course and application reference for students, technicians, and practicing geochemists, geoscientists and other professionals who desire a solid grounding on the subject. The course provides sufficient knowledge and background to allow useful application of the presented information toward site assessment with regard to the evaluation of acid generation potential. By design, Acid Rock Drainage Prediction emphasizes the practical application of the concepts presented and limits the presentation of theory to the level required for a basic understanding of the topic. The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the concepts underlying acid rock drainage prediction and to act as a resource for practitioners to become more familiar with or reaquaint themselves with the topic. For those who require a specialized theoretical background on the topic, ARD Prediction provides an exhaustive list of technical references. The companion textbook to this course which contains some of the course text and has additional references should be read in conjunction with this course: Acid Mine Drainage, Rock Drainage and Acid Sulfate Soils, causes, assessment, prediction, prevention and remediation, edited by James A Jacobs, Jay H. Lehr, Stephen M. Testa, John Wiley & Sons, 2014. Principal topics covered by the course include: Chemistry, Mechanisms and Sources Site Assessment and Sampling Mineralogical and Geochemical Interpretation Static Laboratory Tests and Interpretation Kinetic Laboratory Tests and Interpretation Waste Material Management Case Studies in ARD Prediction Authors Chris Mills MSc P.Eng (Author) Bruce Downing MSc P.Geo (Co-Author) Dr. Andy Robertson P.Eng (Co-Author)   Duration: 33 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Environment Level: Specialize Version Date: December 15, 2014   ​Need to train a team?
