In order to understand the impacts of metals on aquatic ecosystems, it is first important to understand the principles of ecology, what an aquatic ecosystem is, and how metals from all stages in the life of a mine are discharged to these ecosystems. The author then examines the properties of metals and how they enter these ecosystems from mining and other human activities. The author presents the properties and uses of specific metals that are mined, or byproducts of mining, in Canada and other countries, and the toxic effects of these metals on fish, other aquatic organisms, and humans. This is followed by an explanation of various toxicity testing methods, their advantages and disadvantages, and how to prevent and control the generation and discharge of acid rock drainage (ARD). The case studies include mine histories, the toxic metals and/or cyanide that are or were generated and discharged to the aquatic environment, actions taken to prevent and control discharge of these pollutants, and the results of the source control actions.

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.

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.

This course is the third in a set of three courses on Mine Planning and follows on from the previous two Mine Planning courses. Mine Planning 1 - Strategy focused on three of the five main levers for value creation as part of the strategic mine planning process (including mining method selection, process route selection and scale of operation). Mine Planning 2 - Operations then went on to illustrate the use of the final two levers including sequence and scheduling and cut-off grade policy. Mine Planning 3 - Optimization introduces you to mathematical optimization concepts which often form the basis for many of the computerized planning tools that are commercially available today. It is important to understand how these tools work and the fundamental algorithms behind them to aid the mine planning process. Scope This course focuses on the use of mathematical optimization techniques and processes. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to develop basic mathematical programming models and be able to solve this in Excel for the purpose of allocating limited resources for maximum benefit (within the mining context). Coding and scripting are beyond the scope of this course.

This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in underground mining. Falls of roof have always been a hazard in underground mines. Many miners have lost their lives to roof falls, but these types of accidents are becoming less common as ground control practices have improved. A combination of research, stronger regulations, and best practices by companies have made it less likely that today's miners will be injured or killed by falling rock. Miners must recognize the hazards, however, as well as the need to install ground supports correctly, and protect themselves and their co-workers from ground fall accidents. While the mandates of the mining regulatory agencies are law in the US, they are also comprehensive enough to be considered best practice for mining in countries throughout the world. The author is a Certified Mine Safety Professional as well as an MSHA Certified Instructor for both surface and underground. This course material was developed originally for the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and is compliant with MSHA regulations. Authors Elaine T.
