This Edumine course will introduce participants to the principles of mine haul road design, from road building material selection and characterisation, road-user (truck and traffic) requirements, through to performance benchmarking and evaluation as a basis for road maintenance management decision making. These skills will enable participants to evaluate their current haul road systems, recognise operational inefficiencies and implement continuous improvement strategies to reduce cost per ton hauled across the mine road network and improve road performance on a day-to-day operational basis. The training will provide participants with answers to practical mine haul road-operational issues such as: Why are good roads necessary - what are the benefits of an improved haul road design and infrastructure? What critical operational aspects should a road design consider? Equipment, materials and methods - what is required? How do you translate a design into practical construction techniques? When are dust palliatives appropriate - and how do they influence road management and cost per ton hauled? How do you benchmark a road design - what do you see, what does it mean and how do you fix the problem?

Off-site road transportation (access roads) to mining operations (public or private, semi-private) poses a series of unique challenges to people in charge of their Safety, Security and Hazard Management. This course draws information from a number of real life studies performed on this type of road by the authors, and presents them following the logic of a Safety, Security and Hazard Management Report that could be prepared for a mine access road going from fictional "Gate A" to "Mine B," crossing a variety of terrain and subject to an array of geo-environmental and human-made hazards. This course is generic enough to be relevant to various different situations and environments around the world. The course is divided into five steps, which correspond to those necessary to compile a Safety, Security and Hazard Management Report, namely: Step 1: Preliminary Data Gathering; Step 2: Generic Preliminary Inspection/Review of the Road; Step 3: Specific Aspects Linked to Mining Roads; Step 4: Hazard Identification Primer; and Step 5: Possible Mitigations. Steps 1 through 3 are combined in Part 1: Introduction and Preliminary Tasks. Step 4 is presented in Part 2: Hazard Identification Primer, and Step 5 is found in Part 3: Possible Mitigations. Three technical appendices deliver specific information that will help road managers to design specific signals and signage. This course makes references to prior Edumine courses by F. Oboni and C. Oboni (Risk and Decision Making and Engineering for Success in Mining) whenever necessary, but neither requires their knowledge nor repeats any information already presented on risk assessment, risk, or management.

Health and Safety Representatives play a pivotal role in keeping workplaces healthy and safe. By representing workers in their area of responsibility, health and safety representatives provide a means for workers to raise health and safety issues within their workplace, and follow a process with managers to resolve them. Safety is everyone's responsibility, and building a healthier and safer work environment is a company's top priority. Following proper safety procedures begins with individuals, and ultimately affects each person in the company. We should all work together to ensure that the work environment is healthy and safe. Setting a Health and Safety (H & S) example for others in the work environment is the strongest convincer that anybody in an organization has in his armour to ensure that the dream of a safe workplace can be achieved. The key is that we can work together to recognize potential hazards and risks, and prove our H & S commitment to achieve our goals. One should never work on a project or conduct a procedure without fully understanding how to go about it safely. Mature people are always willing to ask someone who is knowledgeable to assist. Once help has been given, ensure that their suggestions and proposed changes are implemented if necessary.

This course is about heap leaching: the design of heap leach pads; the mechanics of preparing the mined ore for placement on a pad; the construction processes involved in placing materials on pads for leaching; the operation of heap leach pads, including the application of fluids that liberate the metals in the ore; the physics and chemistry of the seepage of fluids through the ore; and the ultimate closure of the heap leach pad when mining ends. Objectives By the end of the course you should know enough to plan, establish, operate, and close a heap leach pad. And if you choose not to do all this alone, you will have sufficient information and knowledge to retain and manage specialists, consultants and contractors, hence to undertake the activities attendant on successful heap leaching.

Este curso se desarrolla según un acuerdo de colaboración con Learning Strategies Group, una división de Simon Fraser University Business. Es parte de una serie de cursos sobre aplicaciones para la administración de negocios en minería.Comprender y manejar las interacciones entre el negocio, la comunidad y el gobierno se está convirtiendo en un componente de competencia administrativa y éxito organizacional cada vez más importante. El enfoque de este curso está en destacar la naturaleza y las dinámicas de interacción entre distintos actores con diferentes objetivos y preocupaciones (corporaciones mineras, comunidades, Primeras Naciones, grupos de interés, sindicatos, gobiernos) y el desarrollo de perspectivas, herramientas y estrategias que los líderes y gerentes de hoy pueden usar en terreno y en la sala de reuniones. Algunos ejemplos de los temas tratados, incluyen: Comprender responsabilidad y relaciones; Reconocer poder y valores; Convertir diferencias en ventajas; Crear expectativas claras como una base para relaciones que funcionan eficazmente; Desarrollar la capacidad de anticipar problemas y establecer estructuras proactivas para abordar las discusiones cuando éstas surgen; Reconocer y valorar las relaciones como ventajas; Saber cómo y cuándo usar negocación y consenso de manera apropiada y eficaz dentro de las organizaciones y con intereses externos y partes interesadas; Crear resultados sustentables mediante relaciones sustentables.

Due diligence can be very stressful, time consuming, and sometimes even boring. As a result, investors tend to take shortcuts, and invest with partial information and/or using their gut feelings. These can lead to disastrous results. The objective of this course is to show investors how to quickly and efficiently gather and collect data, and to then use that information to analyse a junior mining, exploration or development company. Nothing can replace thorough due diligence, which takes days to complete. However, if time is an issue and you need to make investment decisions faster, this course will help you significantly improve the quality of your due diligence, at just a fraction of the time you used to spend.
