Este curso está dirigido a cualquier persona interesada en las relaciones comunitarias sustentables en la minería: profesionales, gerentes, encargados de regulaciones, ONG, líderes de la comunidad y estudiantes graduados. En este curso se explica cómo una compañía minera puebe obtener y mantener una licencia social para operar.Se presenta un caso de negocio para recursos dedicados a la licencia social y se describe el retorno que espera una compañía de cada nivel de licencia. El curso también explora lo que se puede hacer para que el otorgande de una licencia sea políticamente más estable, con el fin de reducir el riesgo sociopolítico y mejorar la disposición de la comunidad para un desarrollo sustentable. El curso muestra de qué manera se superponen estas actividades y las áreas de responsabilidad social corporativa, ciudadanía corporativa e informes sustentables. En este curso se explica qué es una licencia social, por qué es importante para las compañías mineras y cómo la teoría de gerencia general conocida como la "visión de dependencia del recurso de la ventaja competitiva" explica de qué manera las relaciones con las partes interesadas afectan la factibilidad y el éxito de un proyecto. También se describen los cuatro niveles de licencia social y los tres criterios de límites que se deben cumplir para pasar de un nivel a otro; se examinan factores comunes que pueden provocar que el nivel de licencia social suba o baje. Además se indagan los conceptos de análisis de licencia social para explorar las diferentes formas en que una comunidad podría ser incapaz de emitir una licencia social que sea durable y legítima socialmente y ve más allá de las políticas de las partes interesadas en los patrones de capital social que pueden mejorar la capacidad de una comunidad para emitir una licencia social sólida, al tiempo que eleva el nivel de la licencia social que entrega al comunidad a la compañía. También se integra la obtención y la mantención de una licencia social con tareas relacionadas en los campos de responsabilidad social corporativa, informes sustentables y mejoras de reputación corporativa.

An Introduction to Modelling Metal Project Finance serves as an introduction to the critical issues associated with the debt financing of mining projects. The aims and objectives of project financing are discussed with an overview of the steps leading up to application. The course is aimed at professionals throughout the mining industry and assumes a basic appreciation of the main financial parameters. Logical guidelines on how to construct a preliminary level cash flow model of project finance are provided, with descriptions of the major input variables. Nickel and platinum are used as example commodities with which to demonstrate the principles of modelling project finance. A background discussion on the technical aspects and major costs involved in developing a large-scale open pit nickel mining project is followed by a step by step guide to the development of a financial model of the project using the financial modelling software tool IC-MinEval. Similarly, background discussion on platinum mining is followed by a step by step guide to developing a financial model of an underground platinum mining project using IC-MinEval. The workbooks generated by IC-MinEval are also included as downloadable spreadsheets for each worked example. The fully linked Excel workbooks have been saved such that by changing the variables in the input sheet revised performance indicators are generated. This does not require the user to have access to IC-MinEval.  A case example is included from Prof. Buchanan's book, Metals and Energy Finance (2018).

This introductory course is intended for anybody involved in mining who has to manage, review, pay for, design, construct, operate, or close a geotechnical structure at a mine. Included in the mining-related geotechnical structures you will study in this course are the obvious: tailings impoundments, waste rock dumps, and heap leach pads. Once you have finished this course you will know enough to deal with anything on the mine that is made of soil, rock, and those modern materials called geosynthetics. This course is not intended to make you into a geotechnical engineering specialist. It will introduce you to and provide you with plenty of practical information and knowledge about those aspects of geotechnical engineering that occur at every mine. This includes geotechnical characterization of a site, soil characterization and properties, the design of geotechnical structures, and the construction, operation, and closure of mining facilities made or consisting of soil, rock, and geosynthetics. The following primary aspects of geotechnical engineering are covered for each of the major geowaste structures at a mine: Site Exploration Soil Characterization Soil Performance Design and Construction Operation of Mine Geowaste Facilities Closure of Mine Geowaste Facilities Summary of Geotechnical Factors The course includes numerous case studies from the author's extensive experience.

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 3 - Circuits is a course for process engineers, mill operators and mineral processing students. This course is the third of a suite of three courses on flotation from Metso Performance Solutions... other titles include Flotation 1 - Fundamentals and Flotation 2 - Unit Operations. A partial list of topics covered by this course include Flotation Circuit Basics, Copper Circuit Example and Copper-Zinc 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 has 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.

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.
