Course Series Details This is a two-part live online course series on the topic Strategic Risk Reduction. The two courses are presented by Karen Chovan and are titled Embedding ESG & SDG Aspects into Decision-Making & Addressing ESG & SDG aspects through Design  This course is delivered in partnership with EIT Raw Material. Course 1:  Strategic Risk Reduction: Embedding ESG & SDG Aspects into Decision-Making A growing global population and shift to global equality has created a dependence on mining; and yet, external stakeholders continue to challenge the environmental assessment space, engagement processes and requirements, as well as cause increasing stringency in regulatory requirements and management standards for such developments. Put simply, external stakeholders now want to either be involved in the decision-making process, or to be able to clearly see how impacts to people and planet have been considered and avoided for large developments. In the Strategic Risk Reduction: Embedding ESG & SDG Aspects into Decision-Making course, delegates will learn about the sustainability framework, and how it functions as a means to focus on, identify, and integrate short and long-term social, environmental and financial considerations into the planning, decision-making and operational strategies of proposed infrastructure and developments. Using the framework, delegates also gain a means to improve transparency of proposed plans amongst design teams and stakeholders involved in the process. Dates: November 22, 29, December 6, 2021 | 9:00am - 12:00 pm PST - Check the exact time and date in your city here.  Course 2: Strategic Risk-Reduction: Addressing ESG & SDG aspects through Design If you're mine design teams struggle with how to address ESG or SDG objectives, or you’ve been trying to break down silos to facilitate collaborative problem solving, then you’ve found a course that can help. The interactive processes explored during the course facilitate dialogue and informed decision-making around a number of project objectives, helping to reduce negative impacts of projects on the environment, and create positive benefits to the local economy, and the corporate bottom line. The processes also provide a means to boost external multi-stakeholder engagement, in turn reducing project delays or risks of disapproval. This course offers registrants an opportunity to learn about collaborative risk identification, alignment processes and prioritization, and integrated project planning through hands-on application of the approaches throughout the training. Dates: January 10, 17, 24, 2022​ | 9:00am - 12:00pm EST - Check the exact time and date in your city here.   Presenter Karen Chovan With over 20 years' experience in the mining sector, Karen is the CEO and founder of Enviro Integration Strategies Inc.

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 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).
