In theory, mine closure is simple; in practice, it is difficult. In this course, we will start with the simple and then proceed to the more difficult, which we will explain in terms that will enable you to deal with the many issues that arise as you plan and implement mine closure. The simple part of mine closure may be set down as three objectives: remove equipment and structures; stabilize waste piles; and control spread of pollutants from the closed site. As we shall see as we progress through this course, these three simple objectives quickly give rise to many questions and knotty issues, including: Who pays? Who says enough is enough? And, What is to become of the site in the long term? Many more related and difficult issues arise. Reading only this course will not enable you to solve all the problems. Each mine site is unique and demands a unique closure plan and approach. You will undoubtedly have to formulate the specifics of the closure plan for your mine by way of many studies, meetings, reports, and deep deliberations. This course will attempt to set down the current state of ideas, practice, and possibilities, so that you are empowered to move forward to success at the mine where you are part of a team charged with mine closure.

Regardless of world market conditions, to win, sustain, and maintain the right to mine is all about sustainability. Waste water management is emerging as the pre-eminent sustainability issue within the global energy and mining resource industries, i.e. related to the following activities: coal bed methane water (CBMw), LNG waste water, oil shale water, coal mining, open pit and underground mining, natural gas extraction, hydrocarbons, metallurgical ore processing, surface and underground earthworks and drainage, and underground coal gasification. This waste water management course has been designed to educate people from the mining, metallurgical, oil, and gas sectors who have to manage waste water issues associated with their day to day activities. This course will equip them with a basic knowledge and understanding of water management tools and strategies, including knowledge of the common terms associated with the water treatment industry. The course does not replace professional advice; however, it does allow informed discussions with professionals. Traditionally, waste water management is encountered in most energy resource extraction, mining, and ore processing activities. All of these industries are facing increasing scrutiny, regulation, competition for land access, and "angst" from local landholders (farmers) and stakeholders (agricultural and urban development). These crucial stakeholders have the perception of their water resource being potentially polluted, and/or reduced in available volume by the resource industry unless proved otherwise. They are concerned about sustainability, potential pollution issues, and access to the water resource itself. Water is the principal vehicle by which potential pollutants in untreated wastewater can be carried from these industries to local habitats potentially impacting on the local surface areas, the local environment, and underground aquifers—especially where this water is accessed and applied through traditional practices such as irrigation. In extreme cases, the polluted water could impact on human life itself. So, in order to demonstrate responsible stewardship over the water resource being extracted, this course gives a practical framework in order to create a robust sustainable water management solution (plan) that has the components of assessing the: raw waste water quality; final stage target water quality; potential beneficial uses for the water; treatment options to achieve the targets outlined above; and a risk assessment process that avoids harm to the environment while realising long-term sustainable benefits.

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.

Cualesquiera sean las condiciones del mercado mundial para ganar, sostener y mantener el derecho de extracción minera es necesario operar de manera sustentable. Ésa es la clave. La “Gestión de Aguas Residuales” está surgiendo como un tema de sustentabilidad de primer orden dentro de la comunidad y de la industria de recursos mineros y energéticos a nivel global. La gestión de aguas residuales es importante para las siguientes actividades: agua del metano de mantos de carbón (CBMw); aguas residuales de gas líquido natural (LNG); aguas de esquisto de petróleo; minería del carbón; minería de tajo abierto y subterránea; extracción de gas natural; hidrocarburos; metalurgia de minerales; movimientos de tierra superficiales y subterráneos y drenajes; y gasificación subterránea de carbón. Este curso de gestión de aguas residuales ha sido especialmente diseñado para capacitar a personas de las áreas de minería, metalurgia, petróleo y gas que tienen a su cargo el manejo de aguas residuales en sus actividades diarias. Este curso les entregará el conocimiento y comprensión básica de las herramientas y estrategias aplicadas en la gestión de aguas, además de la terminología y palabras comunes de uso frecuente en la industria de tratamiento de aguas. Este curso no reemplaza la opinión profesional, pero sí permite sostener un debate informado con profesionales. Habitualmente, la gestión de aguas residuales se practica en la mayoría de las actividades de extracción de recursos energéticos, minería y procesamiento de minerales. Todas estas industrias están enfrentando un escrutinio creciente, las regulaciones, competencia por acceso a las tierras y las “aprensiones” de los propietarios locales (agricultores) y de las partes interesadas (desarrollo urbano y agrícola). Estas partes interesadas esenciales tienen la idea que, en algún momento, la industria de recursos contaminará sus aguas o reducirá el volumen de éstas, a menos que se pruebe lo contario. También les preocupa la sustentabilidad, los temas de potencial contaminación y el acceso a los recursos hídricos propiamente tales. El agua es el principal vehículo a través del cual potenciales contaminantes contenidos en aguas residuales no tratadas pueden ser transportados desde estas industrias a los hábitats locales, con el daño potencial sobre las superficies, el medioambiente y los acuíferos subterráneos locales. En especial, en lugares donde el acceso y aplicación del agua se hace a través de prácticas tradicionales como regadío. En casos extremos, el agua contaminada podría afectar la propia vida humana. Por lo tanto, para demostrar una administración responsable de los recursos hídricos que se extraen y se usan, este curso entregará un marco de trabajo práctico sobre el cual construir una solución (plan) de gestión de aguas robusta y sustentable que posea los componentes para evaluar: la calidad de aguas residuales sin tratar. calidad de agua objetivo en su etapa final/ potenciales usos beneficiosos para el agua. opciones de tratamiento para lograr los objetivos antes mencionados; y un proceso de evaluación de riesgos que impida dañar el medioambiente mientras se aplican los beneficios sustentables de largo plazo.
