This course is intended for professional engineers and geoscientists concerned with mineral project reporting for an issuer on a Canadian stock exchange. It is also a reference source of mineral project reporting standards for property owners, securities analysts, and regulators. The course provides guidance for the preparation of a technical report under National Instrument 43-101—Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, Form 43-101 F1—Technical Report, and Companion Policy 43-101 CP (NI 43-101). NI 43-101 establishes the standards for all public disclosure of scientific and technical information about a mineral project. NI 43-101 became effective on February 1, 2001 and is a law applicable across Canada. It requires that all disclosure be based on advice provided by a "qualified person" and in some circumstances that the person be independent of the issuer and the property. NI 43-101 also requires that issuers file technical reports at specific times and in a prescribed format. This course has been revised to the version of National Instrument 43-101 published April 8, 2011, which became effective law in Canada on June 30, 2011. The course also considers all amendments to National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects up until May 9, 2016. 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).

Este curso ha sido traducido al español por la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú con el patrocinio de la Compañía Minera Antamina S.A. Este curso está dirigido a ingenieros y geocientíficos profesionales dedicados a informar sobre proyectos mineros a un emisor en el mercado de valores canadiense. Asimismo, es una fuente de referencia de los estándares para informes sobre proyectos mineros para los tenedores de propiedades, analistas de valores y entidades reguladoras en general.Este curso ha sido desarrollado y revisado para el Programa de Desarrollo Profesional del Instituto Canadiense de Minería, Metalurgia y Petróleo.El curso proporciona los lineamientos para la preparación de un informe técnico bajo el Instrumento Nacional 43-101 - Estándares de Divulgación para Proyectos Mineros, Formulario 43-101 F1 - Informe Técnico y Política Relacionada 43-101 CP (NI 43-101). El NI 43-101 establece los estándares para toda divulgación pública de información técnico-científica sobre proyectos mineros. El NI 43-101 entró en vigencia el 1 de febrero de 2001 y es una ley que se aplica en Canadá. Esta establece que toda revelación debe basarse en las recomendaciones hechas por una "Persona Calificada " y, en algunas circunstancias, que esa persona sea independiente del emisor y la propiedad. El NI 43-101 también establece que los emisores presenten estos reportes técnicos en fechas específicas y formatos preestablecidos. Este curso ha sido revisado en base a la versión del Instrumento Nacional 43-101 publicado el 8 de abril de 2011, el cual entró en vigencia en Canadá el 30 de junio de 2011.

If you are an exploration geologist, a mining engineer, a metallurgist, a mine accountant, or a practitioner of any of a number of other mining-related specialties, at some time you will be asked to do a cost estimate. Mining is an economic endeavor, and, after safety, the cost of mining and its related processes is one of the most important considerations in that endeavor. This course introduces you to the methodologies of mining cost estimating, and prepares you to complete a credible estimate. The course focuses on itemized cost estimating methods in the context of a mine plan. It covers the costs of excavating, loading, hauling, drilling and auxiliary equipment as well as the costs of supply, personnel, stripping and other requirements. 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).

The predominant economic evaluation technique for a mineral project, from pre-feasibility study stage to operating mine, is the discounted cash flow (DCF) method. A DCF evaluation will include a detailed year-by-year cash flow projection spanning the life of the mineral reserves plus the DCF metrics of net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR). DCF methodology is accepted by industry, the financial community and regulatory bodies. This course examines the requirements, practice, and application of DCF methodology, as well as insights into the potential pitfalls to be found in such evaluations. Principal course topics include: Discounted Cash Flow Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) Determination of Discount Rate Metal Price, Inflation, Debt and Taxes Targeting, Scoping and Ranking Optimizing Production Rate and Project Size Project Expansion Analysis Trade-Off Analysis Equivalent Annual Cost Analysis The course includes practical applications of DCF methodology, with examples, to project evaluation, mineral process selection, process optimization, project expansion, selection of equipment and comparison of alternatives. This course is designed for an audience of mining professionals and managers who require a practical understanding of economic evaluation and financial analysis methods and their application to mineral projects.

Bulk sampling, the costly process of taking very large samples, is part of the general procedure for the exploration and evaluation of a mineral deposit. Often the bulk sample will be a composite of material from development drifts and raises. Ideally, drift rounds or other portions should be selected from geological mapping and prior sampling, handled separately, and should be stored temporarily on a pad for sampling if not directly processed. The bulk sample will consist of these components and will take into account the geological continuities. The appropriateness of the bulk sample will be related to its source, to the variability of the deposit, to the deposit morphology, and to anticipated problems. The final objective is to obtain the quantitative information required for the quantitative evaluation of the deposit in a formal feasibility study; the objective is a production decision that leads to a profitable operation. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the topic, including the application of bulk sampling in a project exploration / evaluation context, the nugget effect and other statistical issues, planning a bulk sampling program, grade verification and metallurgical testing.

Air photo interpretation is a powerful technique that can be used to identify a wealth of geological, environmental and man-made features. The technique can be applied to: mineral exploration and mapping, mining and resource extraction, engineering, and logistics and planning. Air Photo Interpretation is a set of two courses: a must for anyone who needs to identify and apply the basic principles and techniques. In these courses, you will examine many air photos and learn the techniques of air photo interpretation. Topics covered in Air Photo Interpretation 1 - Fundamentals include stereoscopic vision, scale, stereogram construction, optical distortions and the techniques of stereo viewing. Air Photo Interpretation 2 - Applications covers how to identify features on vertical air photos, and the many applications of air photo interpretation to mineral exploration, mining, engineering and environmental studies, illustrated by detailed case studies and numerous photographic examples.
