The development of a resource extraction project instantly changes the environment and social context of the area. Even the smallest group of pre-exploration geologists walking through a community can set off gossip and speculation about potential future economic, political, environmental, social and cultural transformations in a community; construction and operations typically lead to significant long-term change. This is particularly true in remote areas with small, isolated communities, which are often the ones that interact most intimately with resource projects. A strategic social management system can help a company think about its relationship with communities, the extent of the risks posed to their construction or operations and can help a company to assess and manage the social issues, strategies and benefits that are important to the project stakeholders over time. This course provides an introduction to the key components of successful strategic social management. It draws heavily on more than 20 years of experience by the MFC team designing, implementing and assessing social management systems and social performance on some of the largest and some of the most complex (not always large) mining projects around the globe. The course outlines the four distinct social management areas and brings them together into an integrated, risk-based approach for managing social performance. Strategic social management requires holistic thinking, collaboration, clear communication, integrated analysis and reporting; however, meaningful results require a detailed understanding of each of the contributing parts.

Process mineralogy combines mineralogical techniques with mineral process unit operations to identify minerals, their associations and characteristics in order to... establish feasibility concepts at the early stages of geological exploration; design processing flowsheets; specify raw materials and marketable products; troubleshoot plants; and indicate new uses of minerals. Process Mineralogy 2 for Coal and Industrial Minerals is the second of two courses on process mineralogy by the author. It presents application of the basic tools of investigative and analytical mineralogy with respect to coal and industrial minerals, illustrated by numerous examples, including... coal petrology; industrial minerals: diatomite, clay and calcium carbonate; and industrial minerals: structural clay, glass, cement and advanced ceramics. Together with the companion course, Process Mineralogy 1 for Metals (which also covers the investigative and analytical tools of process mineralogy), this course provides an excellent introduction to process mineralogy for all mining disciplines.

Practical Geostatistics 2000 - 1: Classical Statistics is the first of a set of two courses. The companion course is Practical Geostatistics 2000 - 2: Spatial Statistics. These courses are based on over 40 years of teaching statistics and geostatistics to mining engineers, geologists, hydrologists, soil scientists, climatologists, plus the occasional geographer, pattern recognition expert, meteorologist, statistician, and computer scientist. Even, on one occasion, an accountant. Over those years, we have endeavoured to pare away all extraneous mathematics and concentrate on intuitive derivations where possible. Readers interested in rigorous mathematical proofs are urged to stop here and turn to the more theoretically based material (a comprehensive bibliography is included). This course is not intended to turn out fully-fledged geostatisticians. It is intended for people with problems to be solved which can be assisted by a geostatistical approach. To benefit from this course you need to be fairly comfortable with basic algebra. That is, with the notion of using symbols as shorthand for longer statements. We have worked hard to bring you consistent notation throughout the course. Where notation is out of our control, we explain carefully what each symbol stands for and try not to use that symbol for anything else. Calculus—differentiation and integration—is discussed at various points in the text. The reader is not expected to do any calculus (as such) but is expected to know that the differential of x squared is 2x. The only other complication is the frequent use of simultaneous equations. We tend not to use matrix algebra in this course but will give the matrix form after explanations have been given in simple algebra. For example, linear regression is easier to understand if developed with algebra, but very simple to implement in spreadsheets if matrices are used. If we haven't scared you off yet, be reassured by the fact that all the analyses are illustrated with real data sets in full worked examples. Data sets and software can be downloaded from Ecosse Geostatistics. There are also exercises for you to try. Answers are available for you to check your results. Most of these exercises have been collected and used in classes or examinations at Final (Senior) Year and Master's levels. It is our own fundamental regret that this course cannot contain the jokes, anecdotes and sheer fun that we have giving the course in person. We do advise you, however, to keep your sense of humour and common sense at all times while taking this course.The principal topics covered by this course include... Why a Statistical Approach? The Normal (Gaussian) Distribution The Lognormal Distribution (and Variants) Discrete Statistics Testing Hypotheses Relationships The course comprises 24 viewing sessions, each of approximately 60 minutes duration, plus supporting figures, tables, worked examples, references and appendices, and interactive reviews that confirm your achievement of the learning objectives.The above picture is attributed to USACE HQ. 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 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.
