About the Course   The battery metals industry is at the forefront of our shift from a fuel-intensive to a materials-intensive energy system. This course will help you better understand one of the key aspects of this energy transition.   The shift to fully electric vehicles using lithium-ion battery technology is well underway and the rate of production of electric vehicles is set to accelerate. New lithium-ion battery factories are being built and more planned to meet this demand. Battery component supply pipelines will struggle to keep up with such a sharp rise in demand.   This introductory course provides  an overview of the Battery Metals industry. The content includes a brief history of battery technology, the factors that are driving and influencing the market, the supply chain, and future predictions.   Learners explore battery metals with a holistic approach. You will gain insight into the complex business, political, social, and environmental factors influencing and driving the industry.  Discover these considerations through an ethical standpoint as well as a business and financial perspective.  This course consists of 12 modules of 15 - 30 minutes each with supporting resources and knowledge checks. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 4 hours.  About the Audience  This course explores concepts that will be useful for those entering the battery metals industry and is suitable for beginner to intermediate levels.     Examples of those who may be interested include: investors, geologists, chemists, engineers, government officials, regulators, data scientists, policy setters, non-governmental organizations, procurement specialists, academics, finance professionals, sustainability experts, lawyers, and administrative staff.   Recommended Background  We recommend “What is Mining” to give learners a baseline understanding of the mining industry, terminology and the value chain.  Author     Alison Saxby has 35 years’ experience of consultancy and market coverage of critical metals and minerals. Previously at Roskill, latterly as Managing Director, she drove the direction of the company research and products with critical minerals, and sustainability at the forefront of the company's research.

This is an excerpt of the full course and is intended to give learners a free trial of the content.  The full course will be available for purchase in January 2023. About the Course The shift to fully electric vehicles using lithium-ion battery technology is well underway and the rate of production of electric vehicles is set to accelerate. Government incentives and policy mandates will boost sales of passenger plug-in electric vehicles by a 28.1% CAGR (compound annual growth rate) from 2021 through 2026. New lithium-ion battery factories are being built and more planned to meet this demand.  To produce these batteries you need raw materials, particularly the battery metals including lithium, cobalt and nickel. Battery component supply pipelines will struggle to keep up with such a sharp rise in demand. This introductory course provides the learner an overview of the Battery Metals industry. The content includes a brief history of battery technology, the factors that are driving and influencing the market, the supply chain and future predictions. Learners explore battery metals with a holistic approach to gain insight into the complex relationships that develop between the influencing factors that lead to criticality. Discover these considerations through an ethical standpoint as well as a business and financial perspective. About the Audience This course explores concepts that will be useful for those seeking a well rounded understanding of battery metals and is suitable for beginner to intermediate levels.   Examples of those who may be interested include: investors, geologists, chemists, engineers, government officials, regulators, data scientists, policy setters, non-governmental organizations, procurement specialists, academics, finance professionals, sustainability experts, lawyers, and administrative staff. Recommended Background This is an introductory level course. While not required, we recommend the course What is Mining for an overview of the Mining Value Chain and key terminology. Read More

This course is for those who seek to understand why block caving is becoming the mining method of choice for large, disseminated copper deposits at greater depths. This is partly because we are running out of such deposits nearer the surface; partly because it offers economies of scale unachievable with other methods; and also partly because it presents opportunities to maximize metal recovery. The method has been in use for many years and, though conceptually simple, is perhaps the most technically challenging of all underground methods. The amount of metal recovered is a function of a complex set of inter-relationships between geology, rock properties, stress, cave propagation, fragmentation, layouts, draw strategy, draw compliance and time. Modern caving operations are scheduled to produce at substantially higher tonnage rates from deeper ore bodies located in more competent ground than has been the case in the past. These are large, capital intensive operations that must be justified by a good understanding of the relationship between the major value drivers: orebody knowledge, design, schedule, and performance. This understanding must in turn be based on quality measurements of orebody data such as geology, grade, rock properties and stress, and key performance data such as cave back propagation, fragmentation size, material movement in the draw column, draw control and drawpoint availability. This course introduces the student to the concepts and principles of block caving.
