La mayoría de las minas produce relaves, el producto final que resulta de la extracción del cuerpo mineralizado, el procesamiento del mineral y la recuperación de minerales y metales valiosos. Los relaves son el producto de desecho que se genera a partir de la extracción, la trituración, la molienda y el tratamiento químico del mineral. Este curso se centra en los relaves como parte del proceso de minería, tipos y características de los relaves, tipos tranques de relaves y sus componentes, diseño de tranques de relaves, desempeño, construcción, operación y cierre, todo esto ilustrado con historias de casos. Este curso está dirigido a cualquier persona involucrada en los distintos aspectos de los relaves mencionados anteriormente; se incluyen ingenieros, ambientalistas, geólogos, operadores y reguladores.

Este curso está dirigido a todas las personas interesadas o relacionadas con las aguas subterráneas que existen en las minas del mundo. O sea, aquellas personas que tienen la misión de modelar las condiciones de las aguas subterráneas de las minas, aquellas que deben revisar y aprobar los modelos de aguas subterráneas y, finalmente, a todos quienes deban tomar decisiones en una mina sobre aspectos que son controlados o afectados por las aguas subterráneas y el modelamiento de las condiciones de dichas aguas en una mina. Estos son los principales temas de este curso. Modelos conceptuales de aguas subterráneas en una mina Configuración de un modelo de aguas subterráneas para una mina Calibración del modelo conceptual Cómo predecir las futuras condiciones de las aguas subterráneas durante y después de la etapa de extracción Tajos abiertos y aguas subterráneas Minas subterráneas y aguas subterráneas Relaves, roca estéril y canchas de lixiviación y aguas subterráneas Minas, aguas subterráneas e impacto medioambiental Los ejemplos de modelamiento de aguas subterráneas son proporcionados por Soilvision Systems.

Este es un curso corto acerca de ingeniería de rocas para el personal de minería que no son ingenieros. El curso cubre temas para el personal de compañías mineras que no está involucrado directamente en la extracción, como gerentes, metalurgistas, geólogos de campo… incluso contadores, secretarias y abogados. Este curso ha sido impartido en compañías mineras y operaciones alrededor del mundo, principalmente para que el personal sin formación en ingeniería conozca las necesidades del personal operativo en el nivel de la mina. El objetivo es proporcionar al personal de no ingenieros una apreciación del volumen de fallas en la roca y de sus implicancias.El curso "Introducción a la ingeniería de rocas para el personal de minería que no son ingenieros" consta de 7 sesiones de 30 a 60 minutos cada una con figuras, tablas y ejemplos de apoyo, así como revisiones interactivas del curso. La duración del curso equivale a aproximadamente 3 horas de contenido visual. Traducción al español La traducción de este curso al español ha sido auspiciada por Goldcorp Central America.

The Design for Underground Metal Mines courses have been written with the mine operator in mind. Numerous conferences, papers and texts have been written on the procedures to gather and analyze data for implementing into a design process. Although there is wide experience and expertise in the design of mine openings, it has not previously been compiled into courses that enable users to engineer their work place based upon past experience and practice augmented by sound engineering principles. Mining is a dynamic process which requires in excess of thousands of cubic metres of openings to be developed daily over the life of a mining operation. Those openings may be for development and/or production purposes, however all cases must be designed so as to ensure the required behaviour. The site engineer therefore, must design the mine opening or pillars after addressing all issues relevant to the design and assessment of the overall behaviour. These courses are designed to give the operator a design procedure that has been developed in conjunction with academia and practicing operations. This design procedure has been implemented at over twenty underground metal mines around the world. The courses reference numerous authors in the field and apply their findings to arrive at tools for design. The geomechanics design group at the University of British Columbia has been instrumental in developing the design curves presented here along with the direction and sponsorship of CANMET and mining operations throughout Canada. More recently, this course has been augmented by NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health - United States Bureau of Mines) to incorporate case histories from mines in the USA operating within a weak rock mass. Design Guidelines is the second of two Design for Underground Metal Mines courses by the author. The companion course is Design Parameters. Design Guidelines employs the input parameters for stress, structure, rock mass characterization, failure criteria and support procedures developed in Design Parameters as the basis for design methods and approaches for mine openings presented in this course.

This course is intended for those who have to model groundwater conditions at mines, as well as those who have to review and approve groundwater models. It is also intended for all who may have to make decisions about mines on issues that are controlled or affected by groundwater and the modeling of mine groundwater conditions. Finally, the course is intended for all who may be interested in or affected by groundwater at mines worldwide. These are the primary topics of this course. Mine groundwater conceptual models Setting up a mine-related groundwater model Calibrating the conceptual model Making predictions about future groundwater conditions during and after mining Open pits and groundwater Underground mines and groundwater Tailings, waste rock, and leach pad facilities and groundwater Mines, groundwater, and environmental impact Groundwater modeling examples in this course are provided by Soilvision Systems.

This introductory course is intended for anybody involved in mining who has to manage, review, pay for, design, construct, operate, or close a geotechnical structure at a mine. Included in the mining-related geotechnical structures you will study in this course are the obvious: tailings impoundments, waste rock dumps, and heap leach pads. Once you have finished this course you will know enough to deal with anything on the mine that is made of soil, rock, and those modern materials called geosynthetics. This course is not intended to make you into a geotechnical engineering specialist. It will introduce you to and provide you with plenty of practical information and knowledge about those aspects of geotechnical engineering that occur at every mine. This includes geotechnical characterization of a site, soil characterization and properties, the design of geotechnical structures, and the construction, operation, and closure of mining facilities made or consisting of soil, rock, and geosynthetics. The following primary aspects of geotechnical engineering are covered for each of the major geowaste structures at a mine: Site Exploration Soil Characterization Soil Performance Design and Construction Operation of Mine Geowaste Facilities Closure of Mine Geowaste Facilities Summary of Geotechnical Factors The course includes numerous case studies from the author's extensive experience.
