This Edumine course will introduce participants to the principles of mine haul road design, from road building material selection and characterisation, road-user (truck and traffic) requirements, through to performance benchmarking and evaluation as a basis for road maintenance management decision making. These skills will enable participants to evaluate their current haul road systems, recognise operational inefficiencies and implement continuous improvement strategies to reduce cost per ton hauled across the mine road network and improve road performance on a day-to-day operational basis. The training will provide participants with answers to practical mine haul road-operational issues such as: Why are good roads necessary - what are the benefits of an improved haul road design and infrastructure? What critical operational aspects should a road design consider? Equipment, materials and methods - what is required? How do you translate a design into practical construction techniques? When are dust palliatives appropriate - and how do they influence road management and cost per ton hauled? How do you benchmark a road design - what do you see, what does it mean and how do you fix the problem?

Metso, like its customers, understands the pressures imposed by rapidly changing technology, and the need to do more with less. In this new business environment, education and training programs have even greater importance in the maintenance and development of a company’s intellectual capital, arguably it’s most important asset. To address the needs of the plant operators, Metso Technology Development has developed a unique computer based training system (CBT). It focuses on generic principles aimed at equipping people with the knowledge to make safer, faster and better decisions. Gyratory Crushing is a course for process engineers, mill operators and mineral processing students. It is one of a suite of mineral processing courses from Metso... other courses include a Flotation series and a Grinding series. A partial list of topics covered by this course include Mineral Processing Basics, Particles, Comminution, Physics, Mill Safety, Primary Crushing, Auxiliary Equipment, Circuit Basics and a Crusher Circuit Example. In recent years the mineral processing industry has downsized its labor force, installed new technology with larger equipment and incorporated plant wide automation, all in an effort to improve productivity and performance while maintaining operating cost at a minimum. As a consequence of these actions the operator is now required to make more and better informed decisions. To meet the educational needs at the mill operation level Metso developed a Computer Based Mill Operator Education Program. The full program includes a suite of mineral processing courses for mill operators and process engineers on Grinding and Flotation which have been adapted for Web presentation on Edumine. The program is presented by Edumine as online self-paced, self-learning courses. The courses include online certification as well as performance tracking and reporting. For information on the courses, contact support@edumine.com. Well-trained operators mean higher profits, more throughput, safer operation, better morale, better grade and recovery and improved communication.

The investment necessary to start a mine is of the order of 10's to 100's of millions of dollars. In order for the investment to be profitable, the potential product in the ground must be present in adequate quantities and quality to justify a decision to invest. Mining and processing systems used to extract the products must then operate so as to produce revenue to offset the planned investment and to provide an acceptable profit. Clearly, all technological and financial decisions regarding planned production are built on an understanding of the mineral assets available. Thus, the estimation of grade and location of material in the ground (in situ resources) must be known with an acceptable degree of confidence. This is especially true of certain large, low grade deposits for which grade is only slightly above minimum profitable levels, and for some precious metal deposits where only a small percentage of mineralized ground can be mined at a profit. Mining profits are strongly leveraged to product price and to realized grade of material mined. A small difference between planned (estimated) and realized production grade, or a small change in metal price, can have a large impact on mine profitability. The three undertakings, ore estimation, mine planning and grade control, are complementary in an efficient mining operation and are natural progressions one to another. The integration of these three endeavors is important because the grade control system must balance with the ore reserve as well as with the final products of the operating plant, and both estimation and grade control are influenced by planned operational procedures. If this balance is not achieved then the original investment may be in jeopardy. Reappraisals of mineral inventories can be necessary many times both prior to and during the life of a mine. Resource/reserve estimation procedures commonly are considered in two categories, empirical and geostatistical. This course is confined to the principal empirical methods of estimation.
