Course Aim and Structure As a direct result of the impact of COVID-19, Edumine, along with The Imperial College Centre for Continuing Professional Development is launching its well established “Valuation of Mineral Projects Based on Technical and Financial Modelling” as a distance learning initiative covering both technical appraisal and financial evaluation of mineral projects. Market turbulence significantly affects the mining industry. While the intrinsic value of a mineral project is still a key consideration, understanding the interrelationship between technical and financial risk to truly understand the long term value of an asset, helps companies make better investment (or divestment) decisions. Companies that are able to secure debt finance for both development and acquisition of advanced projects have greater strategic flexibility. Understanding how debt impacts the valuation of projects allows for an objective approach to determining levels of gearing; this is relevant to both the investment banking and mining communities. The Valuation of Mineral Projects course is designed to address these issues. This course is for professionals with a basic to intermediate understanding of the principles of the accounting cash flow model that wish to gain expertise in quantitative finance in the context of mining. Actual operating mine valuations are a central focus of the course. To gain the most out of the course, attendees should have had some exposure to the technical aspects of minerals and mining. Attendees are expected to have laptop computers for this course. Workshop sessions are an integral part of the course delivery. Use will be made of the IC-MinEval software, which automates the generation of Excel™-based spreadsheets to produce models for a wide range of mineral projects. These models can be used independently of the software once the course is completed. Dates:          14 - 18 November 2022 Duration:     5 half days Time:           13:00 - 17:00 GMT+1. Check the exact time and date in your city here. Price:           $1999 USD See below for course policy Presenter  Professor Dennis Buchanan Professor Buchanan works jointly between the Department of Earth Science and Engineering and the Business School at Imperial College London.

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?
