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.

Summary Large volumes of data is often generated and captured in mining. However, it is uncommon for the value that this data contains to be fully uncovered and utilised to improve processes. The report “How digital innovation can improve mining productivity” by McKinsey & Company (2015) found that less than 1% of operational data obtained by mining companies is appropriately used. This webinar will enable participants to apply theoretical knowledge of statistics to resolve applied mining problems.  Participants will gain an understanding of what data to collect, how to measure it, and with what frequency? The data cleansing, validation, exploration, visualisation and integration phases will also be presented. In doing so, participants will be exposed to excel spreadsheets in order to appropriately find patterns, gain insights and communicate results. A number of case studies will be presented which demonstrate how data driven decision making can be unitised to improve mining processes. This course requires participants to undertake numerous calculation based exercises to effectively demonstrate the impact of each of the key levers that will be addressed. All participants will be provided with template/pre-filled excel spreadsheets to minimize time spent on data entry. Good use of excel is therefore required. Duration:     5 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Mining Who This Course is For This course is designed for participants with mining industry exposure that are genuinely interested in using data to find patterns and gain insights into how these can potentially improve mining processes. It is also recommended for mining professionals who want to refresh their knowledge on data analytics. This may include but not limited to the following: Mine planners/schedulers: To make better assumptions relating to future productivity, machine and operator performance. Maintenance planners: Useful for understanding trends in machine failure and downtime data. Environmental personal: Making sense and correlating sample data, dust monitoring information, vibration data, and other environment monitoring data. Health and Safety representatives: Understanding trends in health and safety reporting of incidents and near-misses. Process plant operators/engineers: May assist in understanding process bottlenecks.

Summary Do you have the most up-to-date information in drilling and blasting to tackle common problems such as drill fleet optimization, explosive selection, and mine-to-mill optimization? Blasting has completely changed in the last five years, yet alone the last twenty to fifty years and there is relatively little information widely published. Today we understand shock breakage, velocity matching, and powder factor are outdated and should never be used in the blasting process. New methods have taken the place of these concepts that allow blasters and engineers to make significant improvements to the drilling and blasting process. This course will cover the new updates in the basics of drilling and blasting which you will use on a daily basis in your career of blast engineering. This course will cover critical topics such as an introduction to modern blasting, how rock actually breaks from explosives, the commercial explosives and initiation systems used today, and the drilling technology available in the industry. The course is divided into short video modules with questions following each lesson to reinforce key concepts. Duration:     3 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Mining Who This Course is For This course is ideal for anyone who is working in the drilling and blasting program at a mine or works around the process and would like to gain additional background on the subject. The course is designed to give new developments in the field to the seasoned professional while also teaching someone completely new to the topic about the basics. Presenter Dr. Anthony Konya - Dr. Anthony Konya holds a PhD in explosive engineering and is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AcademyBlasting.com. Anthony has consulted around the world on blasting including blast design, presplitting, ground vibration, air overpressure, and blasting safety. Anthony has written over 50 technical articles on drilling and blasting and has developed the modern presplit breakage theory utilized in the industry. Anthony has trained hundreds of industry professionals through online courses, in-class courses and seminars, as an instructor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, and through guest lectures at the worlds leading Mining Engineering Universities and at private company events.   Need to train a team?

This course is the second in a comprehensive series of five mine ventilation courses by the author, written for practicing professionals. The complete series includes the following titles ... Mine Ventilation 1 - Introduction Mine Ventilation 2 - Hazard Awareness Mine Ventilation 3 - Design Basics Mine Ventilation 4 - Advanced Design Mine Ventilation 5 - Operations The basic focus for this course series is on airflow engineering. This is because getting the right amount of fresh air to the workplace is the single most important success factor in meeting the quality and quantity requirements of an efficient, safe and healthy underground mining operation. The courses are also designed to ensure the ventilation practitioner has an adequate understanding of at least the basic issues involved in mine ventilation, and therefore knows when a ventilation problem is of such magnitude as to need to call in a specialist, and has sufficient background to be able to liaise technically with that specialist. Mine Ventilation 2 - Hazard Awareness ensures that you, as ventilation officer, are aware of toxic substances in the underground environment, are familiar with the toxic and other effects of each as well as the available methods of testing and monitoring. This course also ensures that you understand the principles of mine fires and explosions as well as your duties, and the response of other officials and the workers, in the event of a fire or other emergency. Major topics covered include... Gases, Dust, Radiation and Biological Hazards Gas, Dust and Fume Surveys and Monitoring Mine Fires, Explosions and Emergencies Escape, Entrapment and Refuge Authors Rick Brake   Duration: 16 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Mining Level: Specialize Version Date: May 7, 2009 Read More
