Mining Explained is a layperson's guide to mining that has become a respected reference. It is published in book format by the Northern Miner, a Canadian mining newspaper since 1915. This online course is developed from the 11th edition of Mining Explained. This respected reference on exploration, mining and metallurgy and investing explains in layperson's terms how minerals are discovered, extracted, refined and marketed. Also included is an extensive 33 page glossary of mining terms. This course covers Basic Geology, Prospecting, Sampling and Drilling, Mining Methods, Metals Markets, Investing in Mining... and much more.

This course is the second in a set of three courses on Mine Planning. Mine Planning 2 - Operations introduces you to the key mine planning concepts of sequence and scheduling as well as cut-off grade. The mine planning process is complex and integrates several technical branches of the mining discipline including rock mechanics, rock breakage, ventilation and mine design. While mine planners should endeavour to design and implement plans that are safe, environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable, the overriding factor in the success of a mining operation and what ultimately determines whether it will proceed through feasibility studies and onto construction and development is the level of profitability. The drive to exploit a mineral resource such that it adds as much value as possible to the mining business requires a continual update of the mine plan and the rapid implementation of any value adding opportunities as they arise. Scope This course focuses on the main concepts associated with investigating the financial impact of a number of key levers on the value of a mine plan. This course does not investigate core technical concepts required in mining. It is assumed that all technical parameters have been established and are feasible. The focus therefore turns to establishing financial optimality by planning and generating the best mine plan. This course also does not teach the use of mine planning and design software which in some cases may incorporate the concepts discussed within.

This course covers the fundamentals of mobile mining equipment maintenance. It covers issues that are fundamental to the design or improvement of maintenance operations; the underlying ideas have been developed and tested at sites globally since 1982. The scope is confined to large surface mining vehicles: haul trucks, shovels, rotary drills, and support equipment. The course is organized into four sections. People—discusses the skills, organization and productivity factors necessary to deliver effective maintenance; Process—defines the strategic, planning and scheduling, execution, and measurement attributes inherent to maintenance of large mobile equipment; Technology—explains the technical environment present at most mines and discusses the key systems that affect mobile maintenance; and Facilities—outlines the operating objectives and functional requirements for successful maintenance infrastructure. The course is intended for mining professionals who are engaged in the maintenance process, either in line functions or in consulting roles, whether they are designing programs or delivering them. It is also a course that will help professionals in other functions at a mining operation or consulting company to understand the maintenance setting. The companion course Maintenance 101: Product Support Contracts describes the details of each type of contract, risks and mitigation strategies, and why certain contract types may be appropriate under specific circumstances where suppliers play a critical role in supporting mobile equipment maintenance.

This Edumine course will introduce participants to the principles of mine haul road design, from road building material selection and characterisation, road-user (truck and traffic) requirements, through to performance benchmarking and evaluation as a basis for road maintenance management decision making. These skills will enable participants to evaluate their current haul road systems, recognise operational inefficiencies and implement continuous improvement strategies to reduce cost per ton hauled across the mine road network and improve road performance on a day-to-day operational basis. The training will provide participants with answers to practical mine haul road-operational issues such as: Why are good roads necessary - what are the benefits of an improved haul road design and infrastructure? What critical operational aspects should a road design consider? Equipment, materials and methods - what is required? How do you translate a design into practical construction techniques? When are dust palliatives appropriate - and how do they influence road management and cost per ton hauled? How do you benchmark a road design - what do you see, what does it mean and how do you fix the problem?

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).
