Metso, like its customers, understands the pressures imposed by rapidly changing technology, and the need to do more with less. In this new business environment, education and training programs have even greater importance in the maintenance and development of a company’s intellectual capital, arguably it’s most important asset. To address the needs of the plant operators, Metso Technology Development has developed a unique computer based training system (CBT). It focuses on generic principles aimed at equipping people with the knowledge to make safer, faster and better decisions. Flotation 3 - Circuits is a course for process engineers, mill operators and mineral processing students. This course is the third of a suite of three courses on flotation from Metso Performance Solutions... other titles include Flotation 1 - Fundamentals and Flotation 2 - Unit Operations. A partial list of topics covered by this course include Flotation Circuit Basics, Copper Circuit Example and Copper-Zinc Circuit Example. In recent years the mineral processing industry has downsized its labor force, installed new technology with larger equipment and incorporated plant wide automation, all in an effort to improve productivity and performance while maintaining operating cost at a minimum. As a consequence of these actions the operator is now required to make more and better informed decisions. To meet the educational needs at the mill operation level Metso has developed a Computer Based Mill Operator Education Program. The full program includes a suite of mineral processing courses for mill operators and process engineers on Grinding and Flotation which have been adapted for Web presentation on Edumine. The program is presented by Edumine as online self-paced, self-learning courses. The courses include online certification as well as performance tracking and reporting. For information on the courses, contact support@edumine.com. Well trained operators mean higher profits, more throughput, safer operation, better morale, better grade and recovery and improved communication. A course for process engineers, mill operators and students. Flotation Circuits is the third of a suite of three courses on flotation theory and practice from Metso Performance Solutions. Topics include Flotation Circuit Basics, Copper Circuit Example and Copper-Zinc Circuit Example.

This course is aimed at helping those who wish to read and interpret the financial statements of mining companies. It assumes the reader has no formal training or background in accounting but does have a general interest in business with a leaning towards mining. Furthermore, this course assumes a managerial or investor approach rather than that of accountant or bookkeeper. We look at financial statements for their organization, information content and limitations. In short, you will not learn any bookkeeping or debits and credits but rather you will see numerical data and narrative-based descriptions prepared by mining companies. You will learn to use various analytical tools. Simplified fictional examples and actual published reports are used to illustrate various concepts. A brief glossary and a source of further information appear in an Appendix. The course has six primary topics as follows, separated into three parts. This course was formerly entitled Understanding Financial Statements of Mining Companies Under IASB and FASB Regulations. Part 1 Introduction to Accounting and Financial Reports The Statement of Financial Position Part 2 The Statement of Income Part 3 The Cash Flow Statement The Statement of Changes in Equity Notes and Analytical Tools Accounting Standards Financial reporting today is governed by essentially two sets of accounting regulations—those of the United States, through its Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and those of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In this course, both sets of regulations are treated as one agreed-upon set of concepts, principles and guidelines where appropriate. Differences are highlighted wherever they occur. Where there is agreement or the differences are minimal, the common term GAAP is used, which stands for Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Contouring of irregular spatial data by hand has been used by geoscientists for many decades. Contouring using a computer is relatively new and has become more widely used in the earth sciences only in the last 20 years. The availability of inexpensive microcomputer hardware and software makes the use of a computer for contouring affordable for nearly everyone. Gridding and contouring software has become flexible enough to satisfy nearly all needs for contouring with speed and convenience. Computer contouring is not perfect, so it is necessary to constantly be on guard and check results for artifacts and make sure the contour results are representative of the data. This course will help build awareness of what to watch for when using each contour method, when a method is most suitable, and when it is not. Since the early 1980's, we have experienced a significant increase in access to computer programs for contouring, as well as a large variety of computer algorithms. Books have been written about the algorithms and how they are used. The purpose of this course is to pull together information on the most commonly used contouring algorithms and reveal the 'secrets' of how and why they are used. These 'secrets' are not really secrets, but to find all this information you have to dig through many books, use the algorithms (hundreds of times) and observe results. We have explored all these resources for you and present the findings in this course. Hand contouring is still done by some people, and the first section of the course covers hand contouring methods, when to use them, and the pitfalls to avoid. Understanding hand contouring is a first step to using contour software effectively. Author Betty L. Gibbs Dr. Stephen A.

Este curso introductorio sobre cianuro proporciona una introducción no técnica para el uso y manejo global del cianuro, incluyendo la producción de oro, química del cianuro, análisis, toxicidad, tratamiento, riesgos y manejo. Este curso está diseñado para proporcionar una amplia perspectiva del uso del cianuro y cómo se compara con otros químicos que se usan en el mundo. El cianuro fue utilizado por primera vez para la minería del oro en Nueva Zelandia y Sudáfrica hace más de un siglo. La cianuración sigue siendo uno de los métodos más eficientes para la lixiviación de oro y plata de las menas. El ácido cianhídrico (HCN) fue descubierto por el químico Sueco Carl Scheele en 1782. En gran parte, el temor y mal entendimiento que rodea al cianuro está relacionado con su uso en ejecuciones, como reactivo en guerra química y en incidentes como el de la cápsula de Tylenol y el suicidio en masa de Guyana hace muchos años. Existe mucha confusión y mala información en cuanto al impacto real del uso de cianuro en la industria minera de oro. Este curso introductorio intenta disipar los mitos y misterios que rodean al cianuro y proporcionar datos y cifras confiables. Cursos posteriores sobre el cianuro detallan aspectos técnicos específicos que se destacan en este curso introductorio. Este curso comienza con un examen de la producción, el uso y transporte del cianuro por el mundo, seguido por una discusión de sus propiedades técnicas, riesgos y manejo.

Traditional mining project appraisal—discounted cash flow (DCF)—typically involves the use of static variables that remain unchanged across project life and the use of a constant discount rate to account for risk, which ultimately provides a singular view of project value across time. Such a passive management approach is fast becoming outdated. Modern project appraisal should be dynamic and flexible to accommodate changing market conditions by constantly evaluating options to abandon, defer, open or expand a project while managing risk. This course introduces and explores modern project appraisal techniques with a view to increasing expected value. Scope This course focuses on the use of modern project appraisal techniques culminating in the introduction of real option valuation (ROV) applied to mining projects. While traditional project appraisal concepts form the basis for the modern approach discussed, the in-depth use of these remain beyond the scope of this course. It is recommended that participants complete the Introductory Mining Project Evaluationcourse (see Related Courses tab) for a full account and discussion of traditional project appraisal concepts.
