Mine Planning 1 - Strategy introduces you to key mine planning concepts. The mine planning process is complex and integrates several technical branches of the mining discipline including rock mechanics, rock breakage, ventilation and mine design. While mine planners should endeavour to design and implement plans that are safe, environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable, the overriding factor in the success of a mining operation and what ultimately determines whether it will proceed through feasibility studies and onto construction and development is the level of profitability. The drive to exploit a mineral resource such that it adds as much value as possible to the mining business requires a continual update of the mine plan and the rapid implementation of any value adding opportunities as they arise. It is assumed that course participants have a good understanding of mining terms and descriptions, have been exposed to surface and underground mining methods, are familiar with mining development, operations and production and are keen to learn how to plan a mine for the purpose of maximising value. Course participants are also expected to have a basic knowledge of rock mechanics, rock breakage, ventilation, typical mining equipment and other technical fundamentals which form the platform and constraints for generating mine plans. Scope This course focuses on the main concepts associated with investigating the financial impact of a number of key levers on the value of a mine plan. This course does not investigate core technical concepts required in mining. It is assumed that all technical parameters have been established and are feasible. The focus therefore turns to establishing financial optimality by planning and generating the best mine plan. This course also does not teach the use of mine planning and design software which in some cases may incorporate the concepts discussed within.

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. Flotation 1 - Fundamentals is a course for process engineers, mill operators and mineral processing students. This is the first of a suite of three courses on flotation from Metso Mineral Processing Solutions... other titles include Flotation 2 - Unit Operations and Flotation 3 - Circuits. A partial list of topics covered by this course include Mineral Processing Basics, Water Properties, Particles, Slurries, Pulp Zone, Froth Zone, Flotation Kinetics, Impediments to Flotation and Mill Safety. The full Metso CBT program includes a suite of mineral processing courses for mill operators and process engineers on Crushing, 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 Metso computer based training (CBT) videos have been integrated into the online courses, enriching the learning experience. The courses include online certification as well as performance tracking and reporting.

Economic Geology 101 is a course for beginners in exploration geology, people requiring a basic understanding of ore deposits, students, and anyone who is inquisitive about mineral deposits and how these form. The course provides an overview of the three major rock types (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks), and introduces the geologic processes that form or influence ore deposits. In this course, you will learn about ore deposits that are typical for various metals, including abundant metals (iron, manganese, titanium) as well as scarce base (nickel, copper, lead, zinc) and precious (platinum group elements, gold and silver) metals. World-renowned deposits are described and illustrated with numerous figures and photographs. This course is based on the Geological Framework for the Business of Exploration and Mining, authored by David Groves, produced by Market Motion Media.

Introduction to Leaching is the first in a series of four hydrometallurgy courses by the author, written for university students as well as practicing engineers and metallurgists. The Hydrometallurgy series covers the elementary theoretical basis of solution chemistry, the engineering aspects, and the technical applications for a large variety of raw materials, e.g. metals, oxides, sulfides, phosphates, silicates, and others. It also covers the purification-concentration steps such as adsorption on activated charcoal, ion exchange, and solvent extraction. Finally, the general aspects of precipitation from aqueous solutions are covered with numerous examples. The series is characterized by clear and simplified flowsheets, numerous chemical equations written mainly in ionic form, many illustrations for equipment and plants, and finally a lucid style presenting the facts point by point as concisely as possible. Hydrometallurgy 1 - Introduction to Leaching covers solution chemistry, leaching mechanisms and processes, leaching methods and equipment, engineering aspects and microorganisms. Solution chemistry introduces the structure of minerals and water, elementary concepts of acids and bases, oxidation and reduction, complex formation and precipitation. These concepts are included because many metallurgy students do not have this chemistry background. The rest of the course is devoted to the general aspects of leaching of ores and concentrates, the reagents used, methods and equipment, the engineering aspects, and the role of microorganisms.

This course provides a non-technical introduction to the basic concepts of mineral exploration, ore extraction, mineral processing, and mine waste management, with numerous examples, figures and images of mining. Also included are some key aspects of the economics of a mining and mineral processing operation. An Introduction to Mining and Mineral Processing is for anyone who finds themselves working in the mining industry and needs a broad understanding of the industry without the technical details. Examples include geologists, chemists, engineers (except perhaps mining engineers), administrative staff, investors, accountants and suppliers. 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).
