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.

A comprehensive treatment of all aspects of underground mining, from exploration, feasibility, design and development, to production, ventilation, backfill and drainage. This course provides a detailed, practical reference for engineers, mine operators, technicians and students. Underground Mining Practice is based on the author's 50 years of experience as a mining engineer in operations, consulting, teaching and research, specializing in mining and geotechnical engineering, mine planning, audits and training, and development, review and monitoring of mining R&D programs. Underground mining topics covered by the course include: the role of mine planning; information and reporting systems; orebody exploration; mine development and preparation; ground control and backfill; explosives and fragmentation; production, rock breaking and delivery; primary and auxiliary ventilation; usage, reticulation and storage of fill; pumping and drainage; geotechnical investigation; mine layout design.

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?

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 is for anyone concerned with block caving operations. It provides a general introduction to a mining method that is becoming increasing popular as we are forced to mine more and more massive, low-grade deposits. The course covers advantages and disadvantages, basic elements of block caving, design issues, the undercut level, the extraction level, haulage and ventilation, safety issues, and economic issues. Block caving is of growing interest to companies engaged in the exploitation of massive low grade ore deposits, because of its low cost and higher degree of mechanization for improved safety and greater production rates. 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).

Mine Planning 1 - Strategy introduces you to key mine planning concepts. 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. It is assumed that course participants have a good understanding of mining terms and descriptions, have been exposed to surface and underground mining methods, are familiar with mining development, operations and production and are keen to learn how to plan a mine for the purpose of maximising value. Course participants are also expected to have a basic knowledge of rock mechanics, rock breakage, ventilation, typical mining equipment and other technical fundamentals which form the platform and constraints for generating mine plans. 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.
