Contouring of irregular spatial data by hand has been used by geoscientists for many decades. Contouring using a computer is relatively new and has become more widely used in the earth sciences only in the last 20 years. The availability of inexpensive microcomputer hardware and software makes the use of a computer for contouring affordable for nearly everyone. Gridding and contouring software has become flexible enough to satisfy nearly all needs for contouring with speed and convenience. Computer contouring is not perfect, so it is necessary to constantly be on guard and check results for artifacts and make sure the contour results are representative of the data. This course will help build awareness of what to watch for when using each contour method, when a method is most suitable, and when it is not. Since the early 1980's, we have experienced a significant increase in access to computer programs for contouring, as well as a large variety of computer algorithms. Books have been written about the algorithms and how they are used. The purpose of this course is to pull together information on the most commonly used contouring algorithms and reveal the 'secrets' of how and why they are used. These 'secrets' are not really secrets, but to find all this information you have to dig through many books, use the algorithms (hundreds of times) and observe results. We have explored all these resources for you and present the findings in this course. Hand contouring is still done by some people, and the first section of the course covers hand contouring methods, when to use them, and the pitfalls to avoid. Understanding hand contouring is a first step to using contour software effectively. Author Betty L. Gibbs Dr. Stephen A.

The overall objective of this course is to assist reclamation engineers, scientists, and managers to obtain environmental permits in a timely fashion. It is also intended to help other people, who may be closely associated with permitting, to understand the permitting process. The course also covers steps that will help a permit holder to maintain continued compliance with the permit's requirements, thus avoiding fines, penalties, and, even worse, cessation orders. The concepts that underlie permitting are universal: the social license to operate, including respect for local judgments, environmental assessments, environmental management systems, and that post-mining land use must comply with local or regional planning guidance. Because of the universality of these concepts and the frequent sharing of permitting rules among mining jurisdictions, this course concentrates on those principles that will assist mine planners to obtain permits in a timely fashion. The course is filled with examples of regulations and helpful guidance from permitting jurisdictions in Canada and the United States, where the permitting process is mature and fully developed. These have been culled from the author's long experience with reclamation and the legal framework that surrounds it. Given the multitude of jurisdictions that grant permits: US States and even some counties, Canadian Provinces, and Australian States, it is not possible to create a recipe for completing individual permit applications. The applicant is advised strongly to meet with the officials in its jurisdiction to learn about their specifics. This course, however, will enable the applicant to understand and respond expertly to these local specifics. Content The course comprises 24 learning sessions, each of 30–60 minutes duration, plus supporting figures, tables, images, references, suggested exercises, and interactive course reviews that confirm achievement of the learning objectives. The total duration of the course is estimated at 16 hours. Authors Lee W.

Most mining project investments are comprised of three factors: the investment is partially or completely irreversible with significant exit costs; there is uncertainty over the future returns from the investment; the investor has some latitude relating to the timing of the investment. These three factors interact to determine the optimal decisions in mining project investments. There are of a lot of unknown variables at the outset of a mining project. When the mining project is in operation, there is no crystal ball to tell exactly when the mining project will reach its maximum value. Consequently, in any mining project evaluation, there are no clear answers for the questions below. How much will the minimum initial capital cost be? How much will the maximum mine value be? How long will the optimum mine life be? This course shows you how to arrive at these essential decisions, by addressing the unknown variables with the best assumptions that can be made based on the information that is available.

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.

The Case for Proactive Risk/Crisis Evaluation During the last 20 years, experts monitored the crisis readiness of the Fortune 500 companies and classified them in two groups: proactive companies that evaluated and prepared for crises; reactive companies that dealt with crises as they occurred. The results of that long term monitoring effort were simple. The proactive companies: live longer face less crises do better in financial terms have a better corporate reputation Crisis prepared companies: suffer fewer crises recover faster are more profitable The frightening reality highlighted by this research was that less than 25 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were proactive! There are no immune industries... mining is as susceptible to risk and crises as any other industry. This course will show you how to be proactive, and give you the background and tools to evaluate risk and to plan and prepare for crises. In short, it will show you how to engineer for success in mining.
