Learn More   Authors Christoph Wels Dan Mackie Jacek Scibek Lawrence Charlebois Paul Ferguson Introduction The scale and nature of mining projects may result in impacts to the receiving environment, including groundwater resources. These impacts need to be quantified before undertaking the project and throughout the mining lifecycle to ensure regulatory compliance, project sustainability, and environmental protection. Common groundwater impacts associated with mining projects may include: aquifer drawdown and/or reduction in groundwater flow due to pumping from groundwater production wells and/or dewatering of open pit/underground workings;loss of groundwater discharge to surface water such as springs, lakes or streams (of particular significance during winter baseflow conditions) due to aquifer drawdown/dewatering related to mining activities;seepage and associated contaminant transport from mine waste units such as waste rock piles, heap leach piles, tailings storage facilities, backfilled and/or flooded pits/underground workings; andoff-site migration of contaminant plumes in groundwater aquifers (originating from mine waste units) and potential discharge of contaminants into the receiving surface water (springs, lakes or streams). The use of numerical groundwater models enables decision makers to study and evaluate potential impacts of large and complex mining projects. Sophisticated models and modelling platforms are, however, no guarantee of good modelling practice. The complexities of groundwater models used for impact assessment may even lead to misuse and/or misinterpretation. This series of two courses on groundwater modelling describes the broader concepts of groundwater modelling related to impact assessment for mining projects. Yet, these guidelines reflect generally accepted best practices in groundwater modelling and as such should be applicable to a wide range of groundwater modelling applications. This groundwater modeling series is based on the British Columbia Groundwater Modelling Guidelines which were commissioned by the British Columbia Ministry of Environment (BC MoE). This course has been modified and condensed to suit the format and (international) audience of an Edumine course. The course comprises ten learning sessions of 30 to 60 minutes each, several case studies, and interactive reviews that confirm achievement of the learning objectives. The total duration of the course is approximately seven hours. Read More

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.

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.

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.

Traducción al español La traducción de este curso al español ha sido auspiciada por Goldcorp Central America.  Introducción En este curso se discuten los principios y prácticas del manejo de aguas superficiales en minas. Se describen las mejores prácticas del manejo de aguas superficiales en minas para poder cumplir con los siguientes objetivos: Objetivos Todas las minas alteran la superficie. Todas las minas cambian las características del sitio que afectan los escurrimientos pluviales, la evaporación, el caudal de los arroyos y la erosión. Todas las minas requieren la nivelación del terreno, la desviación de escurrimientos y la colocación de desechos que aumentan o disminuyen la infiltración de las aguas superficiales a las aguas subterráneas. Es inevitable en las minas la necesidad de capturar y controlar sedimentos y otros contaminantes en las aguas superficiales, así como la construcción y operación de obras necesarias para cumplir con los reglamentos relacionados al impacto fuera del sitio de las aguas superficiales que salen de las minas.Por lo tanto, este curso está dirigido a todas las personas dentro de la minería o asociadas a ella que puedan estar involucradas o tener responsabilidad por las obras de ingeniería hidrológica, hidráulica, ambiental, civil o minera necesarias para el manejo de aguas superficiales en minas.   Author Jack Caldwell P.E., MS.(Eng.), LLB   Duration 12 Hours Access 90 Days Category Geotechnics Level Specialize Version Date June 26, 2012 Need to train a team?

In this course, we discuss the water and chemical mass balance of a mine site and the many components or facilities that go to make up a mine. There are as many water and chemical mass balances as there are mines. And there are as many mass balances as there are facilities on a mine. In this course we focus on the fundamental theories and methods and illustrate these with examples that are intended to assist and guide in compiling water and chemical mass balances for a mine and its various facilities. This course is one of a series of related courses, others in the series include: Groundwater in Mining Surface Water Management at Mines Objectives Reasons for undertaking a facility or site water balance study may include: evaluating strategies for optimum use of limited water supplies; establishing procedures for limiting site discharge and complying with discharge requirements; estimating the demands on water treatment plants, holding ponds, evaporation ponds, or wetlands.
