The cyanidation process for the extraction of gold and silver from ore has been employed since 1898 when it was first used in New Zealand and Africa and soon after in the United States. It is a very efficient process capable of extracting gold in amounts of less than one percent of an ounce from a ton of rock with over 90% efficiency. Because of the environmental risks, a cyanide management plan is of critical importance to a mining operation. The lack of such a plan, in some cases, has contributed to adverse environmental incidents involving cyanide. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is developing an international code for the management of cyanide. Implementation and adherence to this code, augmented by experienced scientific and engineering judgment, will help reduce both the number and severity of environmental incidents involving cyanide. The "Cyanide Management in Mining" courses attempt to provide the user with the necessary background for development of a cyanide management plan that meets the unique requirements of each operating mine. The full complement of courses in the series includes: Chemistry of Free and Complexed Cyanide Analysis of Cyanides Geochemical Properties and Environmental Fate of Cyanide Toxicity and Environmental Properties of Cyanide Water Management and Discharge Strategies Treatment Technologies for Cyanide and Related Compounds "Water Management and Discharge Strategies" is the fifth in the series of six courses. This course discusses components of a water management plan including water balance, cyanide management, water management practices and treatment and discharge facilities. This course comprises 8 viewing sessions, each of 30 - 60 minutes duration, plus supporting figures, tables and references, and two interactive reviews that confirm achievement of the learning objectives.

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.

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.

Este curso se desarrolla según un acuerdo de colaboración con Learning Strategies Group, una división de Simon Fraser University Business. Es parte de una serie de cursos sobre aplicaciones para la administración de negocios en minería.Comprender y manejar las interacciones entre el negocio, la comunidad y el gobierno se está convirtiendo en un componente de competencia administrativa y éxito organizacional cada vez más importante. El enfoque de este curso está en destacar la naturaleza y las dinámicas de interacción entre distintos actores con diferentes objetivos y preocupaciones (corporaciones mineras, comunidades, Primeras Naciones, grupos de interés, sindicatos, gobiernos) y el desarrollo de perspectivas, herramientas y estrategias que los líderes y gerentes de hoy pueden usar en terreno y en la sala de reuniones. Algunos ejemplos de los temas tratados, incluyen: Comprender responsabilidad y relaciones; Reconocer poder y valores; Convertir diferencias en ventajas; Crear expectativas claras como una base para relaciones que funcionan eficazmente; Desarrollar la capacidad de anticipar problemas y establecer estructuras proactivas para abordar las discusiones cuando éstas surgen; Reconocer y valorar las relaciones como ventajas; Saber cómo y cuándo usar negocación y consenso de manera apropiada y eficaz dentro de las organizaciones y con intereses externos y partes interesadas; Crear resultados sustentables mediante relaciones sustentables.
