Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis is a series of two courses that provides a practical application reference for students and practicing geoscientists concerned with 3D characterization of subsurface conditions. It provides the knowledge and background to allow useful application of geostatistics, integrated with 3D modeling and spatial analysis, in the furtherance of geoscientific objectives. Application of geostatistics in the geosciences started in the mining sector but now has significant applications in the environmental, petroleum, and geotechnical sectors. Applications include evaluation of a mineral deposit or oil reservoir, assessment of subsurface contamination, or characterization of geotechnical conditions. In practice, application of geostatistical theory requires an integrated toolbox of statistical, geostatistical, geological, spatial analysis, and visualization techniques. The Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis courses focus on the integrated approach to apply geostatistics for subsurface characterization, from a description of the data structures required, through discussion of the concepts, theory, and application, to qualification of the end results with worked examples. The courses emphasize the practical application of geostatistics and limit the presentation of geostatistical theory to the level required for a solid understanding of the techniques involved. Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 1 - Data Structures and Theory is the first course in the series. It introduces geostatistics, data types and structures, and covers the basic concepts and theory of geostatistics. It then discusses the integration of geology with geostatistics and explains this through worked examples. Authors Simon W. Houlding MSc.

Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 2 - Applications and Uncertainty is the second course in the series (and assumes prior completion of the companion course, Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 1 - Data Structures and Theory). It introduces practical applications of geostatistics in the geosciences and explains the associated statistical uncertainty of the results. The course covers areas such as uncertainty and probability, visualization and spatial analysis, practical data management, and where possible this is explained through worked examples.

Mining involves the design, construction, operation, and closure of many geotechnical structures, including: access roads, structural building pads and foundations, ponds, tailings facilities, heap leach pads, and waste rock dumps. Geosynthetics are polymeric materials used extensively in mine geotechnical structures to enhance the performance of such structures. Geosynthetics are used in conjunction with soils and rocks to increase the overall strength of these materials, to control seepage from mine wastes and through soils and rocks, and to separate soils of different gradation and hence to limit piping and potential failure of soil structures. This course introduces you to the types of geosynthetics used in mine structures, to the ways in which geosynthetics may be used to build safe mine structures, and to the many details that will make it possible for you to use geosynthetics at your mine to reduce costs and protect the environment. This course describes many case histories of the successful use of geosynthetics in mining, thereby introducing concepts, ideas, details, and practical applications that you may copy or adapt to the specifics of your mine's needs and facilities.

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.

Cualesquiera sean las condiciones del mercado mundial para ganar, sostener y mantener el derecho de extracción minera es necesario operar de manera sustentable. Ésa es la clave. La “Gestión de Aguas Residuales” está surgiendo como un tema de sustentabilidad de primer orden dentro de la comunidad y de la industria de recursos mineros y energéticos a nivel global. La gestión de aguas residuales es importante para las siguientes actividades: agua del metano de mantos de carbón (CBMw); aguas residuales de gas líquido natural (LNG); aguas de esquisto de petróleo; minería del carbón; minería de tajo abierto y subterránea; extracción de gas natural; hidrocarburos; metalurgia de minerales; movimientos de tierra superficiales y subterráneos y drenajes; y gasificación subterránea de carbón. Este curso de gestión de aguas residuales ha sido especialmente diseñado para capacitar a personas de las áreas de minería, metalurgia, petróleo y gas que tienen a su cargo el manejo de aguas residuales en sus actividades diarias. Este curso les entregará el conocimiento y comprensión básica de las herramientas y estrategias aplicadas en la gestión de aguas, además de la terminología y palabras comunes de uso frecuente en la industria de tratamiento de aguas. Este curso no reemplaza la opinión profesional, pero sí permite sostener un debate informado con profesionales. Habitualmente, la gestión de aguas residuales se practica en la mayoría de las actividades de extracción de recursos energéticos, minería y procesamiento de minerales. Todas estas industrias están enfrentando un escrutinio creciente, las regulaciones, competencia por acceso a las tierras y las “aprensiones” de los propietarios locales (agricultores) y de las partes interesadas (desarrollo urbano y agrícola). Estas partes interesadas esenciales tienen la idea que, en algún momento, la industria de recursos contaminará sus aguas o reducirá el volumen de éstas, a menos que se pruebe lo contario. También les preocupa la sustentabilidad, los temas de potencial contaminación y el acceso a los recursos hídricos propiamente tales. El agua es el principal vehículo a través del cual potenciales contaminantes contenidos en aguas residuales no tratadas pueden ser transportados desde estas industrias a los hábitats locales, con el daño potencial sobre las superficies, el medioambiente y los acuíferos subterráneos locales. En especial, en lugares donde el acceso y aplicación del agua se hace a través de prácticas tradicionales como regadío. En casos extremos, el agua contaminada podría afectar la propia vida humana. Por lo tanto, para demostrar una administración responsable de los recursos hídricos que se extraen y se usan, este curso entregará un marco de trabajo práctico sobre el cual construir una solución (plan) de gestión de aguas robusta y sustentable que posea los componentes para evaluar: la calidad de aguas residuales sin tratar. calidad de agua objetivo en su etapa final/ potenciales usos beneficiosos para el agua. opciones de tratamiento para lograr los objetivos antes mencionados; y un proceso de evaluación de riesgos que impida dañar el medioambiente mientras se aplican los beneficios sustentables de largo plazo.
