En este curso analizaremos el balance de agua y de masa química de una faena minera y los numerosos componentes o instalaciones que conforman una mina. Existen tantos balances de agua y de masa química como existen minas. Y existen tantos balances de masa como instalaciones en una mina. En esta oportunidad, centraremos nuestra atención en las principales teorías y fundamentos que estarán acompañados de ejemplos que servirán de guía y ayuda cuando usted deba preparar balances de agua y de masa química para su mina y para las diversas instalaciones que en ella existan. Este curso es parte de una serie de cursos relacionados, que incluye: Aguas subterráneas en minería Manejo de aguas superficiales en minas Traducción al español La traducción de este curso al español ha sido auspiciada por Goldcorp Central America.

The work of today has changed significantly from what it was. Organizations have become more complex. Globalization and technology have created both opportunities and new challenges for the employment relationship and how employers and employees relate with one another. This holds true for the mining industry that must also deal with challenges such as volatile commodity markets. While all these challenges can be daunting, the fundamental issues of staffing, orientation, compensation, performance management, etc. remain vital and ongoing factors for organizations to address. In this course, we look at the best practices of sourcing, selecting, and securing employees. This course will be of interest to managers and supervisors who work with recruiters to build their teams. This course will also benefit prospective employees to gain a better understanding of this process. Taking a strategic approach, this course not only focuses on the immediate need to fill a vacancy. It looks at this as the first step in the longer term approach to engage and retain talent. This is achieved by linking the specific HR functions to the achievement of the organization's goals and strategic objectives. Sourcing the right candidates for vacancies used to be a relatively easy process of placing an ad in the newspaper and waiting for the resumes to come in. Both employers and applicants knew where to connect. Today, it can be time consuming and much more difficult as there are a myriad of methods and places for employers to advertise and for employees to look. In this course we outline an approach of planning out the sourcing process to inform potential candidates of the opportunity to generate a sufficiently populated applicant pool of qualified candidates. Once there are sufficient qualified applicants, making a good selection decision is vital. A poor selection decision can have a significant, negative impact on achievement of business goals. Developing a strong understanding of the requirements of the role and using these to screen and then develop interview questions and strategies to inform the selection decision is vital to a successful search. Engagement and retention are increasingly becoming an important goal for organizations. As one of the first steps associated with this, the orientation process starts the employee on the path of becoming a committed and productive employee. Compensation is another area that contributes to engagement and retention. Understanding how compensation is related to the role and that it is fairly established addresses an underlying fundamental issue for employees.

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.

The Mill Operating Resource is even more than its name implies. As well as a resource for people who need to understand and operate the equipment used in mineral processing, it also provides the base knowledge required to understand new technology. While applications and materials are always evolving, the laws and principles that these are developed from are fixed. The author, in his spare time a writer and illustrator, has more than 30 years of experience supervising and directing mill operations in Canada. It is from this background and his own training needs that the resource has been developed. The resource is presented as a set of two courses... The Mill Operating Resource - 1: Ore Preparation and - 2: Mineral Recovery. This course carries on from The Mill Operating Resource - 1: Ore Preparation by addressing classifiers, pumps, flotation methods, leaching and other methods, thickeners, filters, dryers, evolving technology, and mill safety. If you are an operator and you are feeling challenged by the "why" of things or intimidated by technology, then certification in this course will give you the knowledge to fully participate in the technical workings of a mineral processing plant. The grounding you will receive in mechanical design, plant maintenance, electricity, metallurgy, hydrometallurgy, environmental monitoring, emergency response, instrumentation, safety, fire fighting, and regulatory constraints will enable you to recognize problems as they are developing, initiate the appropriate responses, and better understand new technologies as you encounter them. You will also have a better appreciation of your job requirements and be able to communicate more effectively with engineers and managers. If you are a manager, engineer, training supervisor, metallurgical technician, or front-line supervisor this resource is still for you! It provides practical knowledge, experience, and insight into how these multi-disciplinary processes work in practice and what to look out for when problems arise. But the greatest benefit of this resource derives from its value as a tool that can be used to enhance the productivity of your plant, and a platform from which to construct your own training curriculum. The resource provides a wealth of information that is missing from most in-house training programs. Most importantly, it provides knowledge continuity and standardized testing to aid in the evaluation and development of your operating personnel. The resource can also be used as a prerequisite to employment to ensure commitment and ability. Other advantages include: testing and certification, improved employee morale, increased safety awareness, improved circuit management, decrease in downtime and/or equipment damage, and increased understanding of technological change.
