About the Course In this introductory course, students explore the full breadth and depth of the mining sector. An array of succinct overviews, video clips, and infographics guide students through a typical mining value chain (exploration, mining, processing, transport, closure, and post-closure). Topics such as artisanal and small-scale mining, project financing, and an overview of a variety of commodities are included. Key trends within mining are also explored including insight into new and developing technologies, and true sustainability within mining. Students will leave this course with a solid grasp of mining terminology, processes, and business practices that will help them work in or with professionals in the mining industry. About the Audience This course provides a robust foundation to the key components of the mining industry and introduces the learner to the mining value chain, industry specific terminology and key concepts. This course is for anyone who is interested in the mining sector and would like a broad overview of the mining value chain without the technical details. Examples of those who may be interested include: geologists, chemists, engineers, government officials, regulators, data scientists, policy setters, non-governmental organizations, procurement specialists, academics, finance professionals, sustainability experts, lawyers, and administrative staff.   Recommended Background This is an introductory level course. No specific pre-requisites are recommended.

In recent years there has been a strong international move toward knowing and improving the quality of information used in the mining industry for mineral project exploration reporting and resource/reserve estimation. In Canada this trend has been accentuated because of recent, highly publicized scams that involved contamination of samples. An important aim of quality control procedures is to minimize the likelihood of such scams so that the public is not misled as to the economic potential of a mineral deposit. Quality control procedures also serve the technical purposes of identifying sources of and quantifying both random errors and unintentional bias in sampling, subsampling and analytical routines and thus provide the basis for improved procedures of data collection that translate into improved resource/reserve estimates. One of the important reactions in Canada to recent mining scams has been the implementation of what is known as National Instrument 43-101 (NI43-101) in which a wide range of requirements, relating to mineral project reporting and resource/reserve estimation, are laid out. These requirements identify a Qualified Person (QP) who is responsible for all technical matters related to obtaining and publicizing both assay data and resource/reserve figures. This course incorporates a variety of procedures designed to fulfill the requirements of NI43-101 insofar as standard, blank and duplicate samples can be used to define and monitor quality of geochemical and assay values that are the basis of deposit evaluation. The International Standards Organization (ISO) has developed a variety of widely distributed publications dealing with quality control systems for a wide range of industrial settings. The application of the ISO standards to resource/reserve estimation procedures necessarily involves all steps of the published procedures. Too often quality control is thought of only in terms of quantitative measurements. A broader perspective is essential and must include the categorical and qualitative data that are inherent in geological studies. 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).

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.

Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis is a series of two courses that provides a practical application reference for students and practicing geoscientists concerned with 3D characterization of subsurface conditions. It provides the knowledge and background to allow useful application of geostatistics, integrated with 3D modeling and spatial analysis, in the furtherance of geoscientific objectives. Application of geostatistics in the geosciences started in the mining sector but now has significant applications in the environmental, petroleum, and geotechnical sectors. Applications include evaluation of a mineral deposit or oil reservoir, assessment of subsurface contamination, or characterization of geotechnical conditions. In practice, application of geostatistical theory requires an integrated toolbox of statistical, geostatistical, geological, spatial analysis, and visualization techniques. The Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis courses focus on the integrated approach to apply geostatistics for subsurface characterization, from a description of the data structures required, through discussion of the concepts, theory, and application, to qualification of the end results with worked examples. The courses emphasize the practical application of geostatistics and limit the presentation of geostatistical theory to the level required for a solid understanding of the techniques involved. Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 2 - Applications and Uncertainty is the second course in the series (and assumes prior completion of the companion course, Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 1 - Data Structures and Theory). It introduces practical applications of geostatistics in the geosciences and explains the associated statistical uncertainty of the results. The course covers areas such as uncertainty and probability, visualization and spatial analysis, practical data management, and where possible this is explained through worked examples.
