The Design for Underground Metal Mines courses have been written with the mine operator in mind. Numerous conferences, papers and texts have been written on the procedures to gather and analyze data for implementing into a design process. Although there is wide experience and expertise in the design of mine openings, it has not previously been compiled into courses that enable users to engineer their work place based upon past experience and practice augmented by sound engineering principles. Mining is a dynamic process which requires in excess of thousands of cubic metres of openings to be developed daily over the life of a mining operation. Those openings may be for development and/or production purposes, however all cases must be designed so as to ensure the required behaviour. The site engineer therefore, must design the mine opening or pillars after addressing all issues relevant to the design and assessment of the overall behaviour. These courses are designed to give the operator a design procedure that has been developed in conjunction with academia and practicing operations. This design procedure has been implemented at over twenty underground metal mines around the world. The courses reference numerous authors in the field and apply their findings to arrive at tools for design. The geomechanics design group at the University of British Columbia has been instrumental in developing the design curves presented here along with the direction and sponsorship of CANMET and mining operations throughout Canada. More recently, this course has been augmented by NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health - United States Bureau of Mines) to incorporate case histories from mines in the USA operating within a weak rock mass. Design Guidelines is the second of two Design for Underground Metal Mines courses by the author. The companion course is Design Parameters. Design Guidelines employs the input parameters for stress, structure, rock mass characterization, failure criteria and support procedures developed in Design Parameters as the basis for design methods and approaches for mine openings presented in this course.

The Case for Proactive Risk/Crisis Evaluation During the last 20 years, experts monitored the crisis readiness of the Fortune 500 companies and classified them in two groups: proactive companies that evaluated and prepared for crises; reactive companies that dealt with crises as they occurred. The results of that long term monitoring effort were simple. The proactive companies: live longer face less crises do better in financial terms have a better corporate reputation Crisis prepared companies: suffer fewer crises recover faster are more profitable The frightening reality highlighted by this research was that less than 25 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were proactive! There are no immune industries... mining is as susceptible to risk and crises as any other industry. This course will show you how to be proactive, and give you the background and tools to evaluate risk and to plan and prepare for crises. In short, it will show you how to engineer for success in mining.

This course introduces an approach to local economic and community development that focuses on the creation of a "parallel economy" in communities impacted by the extractive industry - an economy that may be inspired and sustained by the increased population and economic output of the mine but that is entrepreneurial in nature and focused on strengthening local capacity for wealth creation. Enterprise Facilitation® is a community development methodology whose aim is to assist local, self motivated entrepreneurs to transform their own ideas into viable enterprises. The approach, used in community development for the past 25 years, has come to the attention of mining companies for its ability to engender not only sustainable development in communities but also a local "can do" attitude that promotes community pride and long-lasting gratitude for the providers of the Enterprise Facilitation® service.

Today, sustainability is the key to the future success of mining and we carefully consider the long-term impacts of operations on our local communities. Sustainability means we consider the economical, environmental, cultural, and social aspects in the development of our operations as we strive to benefit local communities in the way we benefit from operating as their neighbours. Sound environmental practices result in improved air, water, land, and heritage resources. Benefits accrue to the environment, our people, our families, the broader community, and future generations. They also result in credibility with local communities in being able to manage the local resource and access to further resources in the future. Your company should be committed to providing guidelines, management, personnel, and resources necessary to minimise potential adverse effects of its operations on the environment and human health.
