This course is for anyone who needs to interface with the mining industry: suppliers of equipment and services, government and regulators, administrative and support staff. In short, anyone who needs answers to questions like the following. Do you know who Robert Friedland is? Or Ivan Glasenberg? Do you know what Escondida is? Or where it is? Or Oyu Tolgoi? Or Grasberg? What is NI43-101? … The Equator Principles? … Copiapo? … Bre-X? … PDAC? What percentage of GDP in Australia is accounted for by mining and mineral processing? If you complete this course, you will. You won't learn everything about the technical aspects of mining, but you will learn what is current, topical and important in today's mining scene. In short, you will get a comprehensive overview of the mining industry. And you will get links to sources of information where you can find everything else. We hope that you will find the course so useful that it becomes your gateway for information on any mining topic. The 2022 version of the course has been extensively updated and improved: charts and figures have been brought up to date and improved; many images have been replaced and some have been added; all online links have been verified and/or updated as necessary; mining people, companies and salaries have been brought up to date; and a new commodities section has been added for Lithium.

In this introductory course, students explore the full breadth and depth of the mining sector. An array of succinct overviews, video clips, and infographics guide students through a typical mining value chain (exploration, mining, processing, transport, closure, and post-closure). Topics such as artisanal and small-scale mining, project financing, and an overview of a variety of commodities are included. Key trends within mining are also explored including insight into new and developing technologies, and true sustainability within mining. Students will leave this course with a solid grasp of mining terminology, processes, and business practices that will help them work in or with professionals in the mining industry. About the Audience This course provides a robust foundation to the key components of the mining industry and introduces the learner to the mining value chain, industry specific terminology and key concepts. This course is for anyone who is interested in the mining sector and would like a broad overview of the mining value chain without the technical details. Examples of those who may be interested include: geologists, chemists, engineers, government officials, regulators, data scientists, policy setters, non-governmental organizations, procurement specialists, academics, finance professionals, sustainability experts, lawyers, and administrative staff. Recommended Background This is an introductory level course. No specific pre-requisites are recommended. Read more

In recent years there has been a strong international move toward knowing and improving the quality of information used in the mining industry for mineral project exploration reporting and resource/reserve estimation. In Canada this trend has been accentuated because of recent, highly publicized scams that involved contamination of samples. An important aim of quality control procedures is to minimize the likelihood of such scams so that the public is not misled as to the economic potential of a mineral deposit. Quality control procedures also serve the technical purposes of identifying sources of and quantifying both random errors and unintentional bias in sampling, subsampling and analytical routines and thus provide the basis for improved procedures of data collection that translate into improved resource/reserve estimates. One of the important reactions in Canada to recent mining scams has been the implementation of what is known as National Instrument 43-101 (NI43-101) in which a wide range of requirements, relating to mineral project reporting and resource/reserve estimation, are laid out. These requirements identify a Qualified Person (QP) who is responsible for all technical matters related to obtaining and publicizing both assay data and resource/reserve figures. This course incorporates a variety of procedures designed to fulfill the requirements of NI43-101 insofar as standard, blank and duplicate samples can be used to define and monitor quality of geochemical and assay values that are the basis of deposit evaluation. The International Standards Organization (ISO) has developed a variety of widely distributed publications dealing with quality control systems for a wide range of industrial settings. The application of the ISO standards to resource/reserve estimation procedures necessarily involves all steps of the published procedures. Too often quality control is thought of only in terms of quantitative measurements. A broader perspective is essential and must include the categorical and qualitative data that are inherent in geological studies. This is a premium course which has been peer-reviewed by a committee appointed by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) and the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME).

This online Due Diligence course focuses on Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) regulations that govern safety in the Canadian province of Alberta. However, the concepts apply to most any location in the world. Due diligence is a way to think about safety as an integral part of every job. It is a lifesaver in that it helps ensure a safe workplace. Whether your job environment is a large, open pit mine or a construction job site in a crowded urban area, everyone can benefit from an understanding of the principles of due diligence.   Author Vista Training   Duration: 2 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Operations Level: Specialize Version:  v1.0.2         Overall Course Specifications: Estimated length of training program: 1 hour + final test Number of test questions: 16 Printable Certificate of Completion: Yes Final Exam Feedback report: Yes Need to train a team?

Introducción Los botaderos de roca estéril y desmonte son estructuras enormes. El minado de carbón con voladura de montañas en British Columbia está creando las más grandes estructuras hechas por el hombre sobre la faz de la tierra. Estos inmensos botaderos miden hasta 400 metros de alto, contienen más de mil millones de metros cúbicos de material y, por lo general, forman pilas de desmonte en medio del valle o drenajes de roca. La inestabilidad de las estructuras ha generado gran preocupación entre los operadores de las minas y los entes reguladores del gobierno debido al riesgo contra la seguridad del personal, equipo e infraestructura, así como su impacto ambiental. A mediados de 1990, los representantes de la industria, Canada Centre for Minerals and Energy Technology - CANMET (Centro Canadiense de Tecnología para Energía y Minerales), el Ministerio del Medio Ambiente y el Ministerio de Energía, Minas y Recursos Petroleros conformaron un Comité de Investigación de Botaderos para promover el trabajo de investigación y garantizar el entendimiento común de estos botaderos. El curso "Diseño y Operación de Grandes Botaderos" se basa en tres documentos que se generan a partir de una serie de estudios dirigidos a mejorar el entendimiento del comportamiento y desarrollar una base de datos consistente para botaderos ... Manual de Investigación y Diseño (1991), Manual de Operaciones y Monitoreo (1991) y Revisión y Evaluación de Fallas (1992). Los consultores geotécnicos y los representantes de la industria más prominentes contribuyeron con su experiencia para llevar a cabo estos estudios. Los estudios están siendo ampliamente distribuidos por el Ministerio de Energía, Minas y Recursos Petroleros con la esperanza de que sea útil en todo lo relacionado a botaderos mineros para que sean estables, seguros y económicamente factibles. Un completo curso y referencia técnica para operadores de mina y consultores en las áreas de investigación, planeación, diseño, operación y monitoreo de botaderos de mina. Incluye la revisión y análisis de los tipos de fallas de mina. Authors Tim Eaton MSc P.Eng (Editor) Scott Broughton (Co-Autor) Klohn Crippen Berger (Co-Autor) Piteau Associates Engineering Ltd.
