Underground Mine Backfill 2 - Slurry, Paste, and Rock Fills is the second in a set of two Underground Mine Backfill courses. This course reviews each backfill type and its preparation, distribution, stope preparation and placement practices as well as relevant safety and quality control issues. Underground Mine Backfill 1 - Introduction provides an introduction to mine backfill properties, types, uses, mining methods and system layout. A review quiz can be found at the end of each section to evaluate your understanding of the material presented. The objective of the courses is to provide an overview of common underground mine backfill practices and technologies for mine technical personnel. The goals are to: Provide a standard from which operators can understand the basic principles and practices for using underground mine backfill. Provide an understanding of how critical the role of backfill and backfill personnel are for mining. Provide a common foundation for backfill training. Provide a uniform backfill terminology. Provide an understanding of the various stages of backfill systems. Provide an understanding of potential hazards to personnel and equipment safety in order to prevent backfill-related accidents. As many companies have site- and company-specific standards for their unique situations, training for specific operational duties is beyond the scope of this course and is left to mine site-training procedures. This course is not intended to replace existing mine training practices, but to complement them as a common reference. Authors James Archibald David O.

Ce cours fournit une introduction non technique aux concepts fondamentales d'exploration minérale, d'extraction de minerai, de traitement de minerai, et de la gestion des terres stériles, avec plusieurs exemples, des figures et des images d’exploitation minière. Aussi inclus sont quelques aspects clés de l’économie d’une operation d’exploitation minière et du traitement du minerai, et quelques idées à propos de l'avenir de l’exploitation minière. Introduction à l’exploitation minière et au traitement du minerai est pour toutes les personnes (sauf les ingénieurs des mines) qui ont besoin d'une compréhension en général de l'industrie minière sans les détails techniques... des investisseurs, comptables et fournisseurs... aux géologues, chimistes et métallurgistes. La présentation de ce cours est picturalle et conceptuelle, avec un format léger et facile à lire. Le cours comprend 33 sessions courtes, chacune d’environ 15 minutes, ainsi que cinq révisions interactives qui confirment la réussite des objectifs du cours. La durée totale du cours est d’environ huit heures. ​Authors Dr. Scott Dunbar   Duration: 8 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Mining Level: Introduce Version Date: Août 23, 2010   Need to train a team?

This course provides current insights and practical suggestions for implementing maintenance management as a viable and valuable asset for any industry seeking to improve its operating systems. Intended as a senior level reference for both maintenance and nonmaintenance professionals alike, Uptime provides an overview of maintenance management. It examines various elements that maintenance managers deal with and offers guidelines for maintenance success, specifically, useful information about "what" works well and "how" to achieve it. Whenever possible, the author has attempted to stay away from excessive details that are likely to be more confusing than illuminating to lay readers; he has tried to balance this by providing enough information to help the dedicated maintenance professional make informed choices. Brief "Summary" sections appear at the end of each session. These outline key points for executives and managers who want to focus on significant points without getting bogged down in minutiae.

En este curso analizaremos el balance de agua y de masa química de una faena minera y los numerosos componentes o instalaciones que conforman una mina. Existen tantos balances de agua y de masa química como existen minas. Y existen tantos balances de masa como instalaciones en una mina. En esta oportunidad, centraremos nuestra atención en las principales teorías y fundamentos que estarán acompañados de ejemplos que servirán de guía y ayuda cuando usted deba preparar balances de agua y de masa química para su mina y para las diversas instalaciones que en ella existan. Este curso es parte de una serie de cursos relacionados, que incluye: Aguas subterráneas en minería Manejo de aguas superficiales en minas Traducción al español La traducción de este curso al español ha sido auspiciada por Goldcorp Central America.

This introductory course is intended for anybody involved in mining who has to manage, review, pay for, design, construct, operate, or close a geotechnical structure at a mine. Included in the mining-related geotechnical structures you will study in this course are the obvious: tailings impoundments, waste rock dumps, and heap leach pads. Once you have finished this course you will know enough to deal with anything on the mine that is made of soil, rock, and those modern materials called geosynthetics. This course is not intended to make you into a geotechnical engineering specialist. It will introduce you to and provide you with plenty of practical information and knowledge about those aspects of geotechnical engineering that occur at every mine. This includes geotechnical characterization of a site, soil characterization and properties, the design of geotechnical structures, and the construction, operation, and closure of mining facilities made or consisting of soil, rock, and geosynthetics. The following primary aspects of geotechnical engineering are covered for each of the major geowaste structures at a mine: Site Exploration Soil Characterization Soil Performance Design and Construction Operation of Mine Geowaste Facilities Closure of Mine Geowaste Facilities Summary of Geotechnical Factors The course includes numerous case studies from the author's extensive experience.

Who Should Participate? People active in the design and operation of surface mines for coal and other bedded materials such as china clay, phosphate, tar sands, uranium, etc. People who prepare reclamation plans for these mines. Similarly, people who prepare permit applications and environmental impact assessments for these mines. Environmental resources and reclamation managers What You Will Learn Part 1 provides an introduction and glossary of terms. Part 2 discusses the "Nature of coal-mine overburden," including distribution of coal fields in North America, the kinds of sedimentary strata found typically above and below the coal, the connection between the depositional environment and the types of contaminants found in the overburden, and the connection between rhealogical changes when the overburden is submerged in a groundwater regime and the rock types. In Part 3 we look at "Overburden Analysis" and the kinds of tests that can be used to predict contamination and rhealogical changes. Part 4 looks at "Potential reclamation problems from routine overburden handling," which is a catalog of potential problems and is meant to reinforce the need for good planning of overburden handling. Part 5 goes over the process of "Disposal of inimical material," which is often essential to the economic success of a surface mine but can lead, if done haphazardly, to the need for almost perpetual care and treatment of discharged waters. In Part 6 we get to the heart of the course, for which the earlier materials provide the foundation, "Improved handling techniques of surface coal-mine overburden." Examples are presented and diagnosed for each of the major coal surface-mining geometries. Part 7 - Conclusions reviews the major parts of the course and suggests that individual designs, responsive to the goals of the course, may need to be tested on sophisticated mine-design software to optimize production before buying capital goods.
