This course is the third 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 3 - Design Basics ensures that you, as ventilation officer, understand the principles of pressure, resistance and flow and are aware of the basic ventilation design issues, including fan parts, fan pressure and performance, fan networks and fan modelling and testing. Major topics covered include... Pressure, Resistance and Flow Basic Ventilation Design Issues Fan Parts, Pressure and Performance Fan Networks, Testing and Modelling Fan Types and Issues Authors Dr. Rick Brake   Duration 22 hours Access 90 Days Category Mining Level Specialize Version Date June 5, 2009   ​Need to train a team?

Mining Explained is a layperson's guide to mining that has become a respected reference. It is published in book format by the Northern Miner, a Canadian mining newspaper since 1915. This online course is developed from the 11th edition of Mining Explained. This respected reference on exploration, mining and metallurgy and investing explains in layperson's terms how minerals are discovered, extracted, refined and marketed. Also included is an extensive 33 page glossary of mining terms. This course covers Basic Geology, Prospecting, Sampling and Drilling, Mining Methods, Metals Markets, Investing in Mining... and much more.

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.

This course discusses the principles and practice of surface water management at mines. It describes best management practices for surface water management at a mine in order to achieve the following objectives. Control surface water in order to prevent pollution of on-site and off-site water resources. Divert excess runoff that may otherwise flood or interfere with mine workings. Limit infiltration to mine waste disposal facilities to control potential pollution of surface water and underground waters resulting from excessive infiltration. Control erosion of the site to limit sediment runoff that may negatively affect receiving waters. Control erosion that may otherwise cause excessive damage to mine closure works. Objectives All mines disturb the surface. All mines change the features of the mine site that affect precipitation runoff, evaporation, streamflow, and erosion. All mines involve grading of the site, diversion of runoff, and placement of wastes that increase or decrease infiltration of surface water to the groundwater. Inevitably at a mine it is necessary to capture and control sediments and other pollutants in surface water, and build and operate the works needed to comply with regulations regarding off-site impact by surface waters running from the mine. Accordingly, this course is intended for all those people at a mine or associated with a mine who may be involved with or responsible for the hydrologic, hydraulic, environmental, civil, and mining engineering works required to manage surface water at a mine.
