This course is about heap leaching: the design of heap leach pads; the mechanics of preparing the mined ore for placement on a pad; the construction processes involved in placing materials on pads for leaching; the operation of heap leach pads, including the application of fluids that liberate the metals in the ore; the physics and chemistry of the seepage of fluids through the ore; and the ultimate closure of the heap leach pad when mining ends. Objectives By the end of the course you should know enough to plan, establish, operate, and close a heap leach pad. And if you choose not to do all this alone, you will have sufficient information and knowledge to retain and manage specialists, consultants and contractors, hence to undertake the activities attendant on successful heap leaching.

This course provides a non-technical introduction to the basic concepts of mineral exploration, ore extraction, mineral processing, and mine waste management, with numerous examples, figures and images of mining. Also included are some key aspects of the economics of a mining and mineral processing operation. An Introduction to Mining and Mineral Processing is for anyone who finds themselves working in the mining industry and needs a broad understanding of the industry without the technical details. Examples include geologists, chemists, engineers (except perhaps mining engineers), administrative staff, investors, accountants and suppliers. 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).

About the Course In this introductory course, students explore the science behind the processes used in today's mineral processing industry. The concepts of reaction kinetics are introduced and applied to the chemistry and physics in mineral processing operations. With ever more difficult ores to process, we bring a new approach to mineral processing by focusing on understanding the consistency of science at the molecular level. This course explores the improved use of old techniques and development of new ones will advance the industry into the 21st century.​ Students will leave this course with a solid grasp of reaction kinetics concepts such as surface charge, reaction selectivity, application characteristics of soluble and insoluble reagents, equilibrium, chemical dispersion characteristics, and practices that will help them troubleshoot and improve mineral processing operations and increase plant efficiency. About the Audience This course is for individuals interested in the science behind mineral processing operations. Examples of those who may be interested include: mineral processors, metallurgists, mineral processing researchers, engineers, and plant managers. Recommended Background This is an introductory level course. We recommend a university level of chemistry taught to engineers and an understanding of engineering mathematics. For an introduction to the mining industry and terminology, we recommend “What is Mining” Authors Bret Cousins, M.Sc., P.Eng.

Regardless of world market conditions, to win, sustain, and maintain the right to mine is all about sustainability. Waste water management is emerging as the pre-eminent sustainability issue within the global energy and mining resource industries, i.e. related to the following activities: coal bed methane water (CBMw), LNG waste water, oil shale water, coal mining, open pit and underground mining, natural gas extraction, hydrocarbons, metallurgical ore processing, surface and underground earthworks and drainage, and underground coal gasification. This waste water management course has been designed to educate people from the mining, metallurgical, oil, and gas sectors who have to manage waste water issues associated with their day to day activities. This course will equip them with a basic knowledge and understanding of water management tools and strategies, including knowledge of the common terms associated with the water treatment industry. The course does not replace professional advice; however, it does allow informed discussions with professionals. Traditionally, waste water management is encountered in most energy resource extraction, mining, and ore processing activities. All of these industries are facing increasing scrutiny, regulation, competition for land access, and "angst" from local landholders (farmers) and stakeholders (agricultural and urban development). These crucial stakeholders have the perception of their water resource being potentially polluted, and/or reduced in available volume by the resource industry unless proved otherwise. They are concerned about sustainability, potential pollution issues, and access to the water resource itself. Water is the principal vehicle by which potential pollutants in untreated wastewater can be carried from these industries to local habitats potentially impacting on the local surface areas, the local environment, and underground aquifers—especially where this water is accessed and applied through traditional practices such as irrigation. In extreme cases, the polluted water could impact on human life itself. So, in order to demonstrate responsible stewardship over the water resource being extracted, this course gives a practical framework in order to create a robust sustainable water management solution (plan) that has the components of assessing the: raw waste water quality; final stage target water quality; potential beneficial uses for the water; treatment options to achieve the targets outlined above; and a risk assessment process that avoids harm to the environment while realising long-term sustainable benefits.
