Summary Do you have the most up-to-date information in drilling and blasting to tackle common problems such as drill fleet optimization, explosive selection, and mine-to-mill optimization? Blasting has completely changed in the last five years, yet alone the last twenty to fifty years and there is relatively little information widely published. Today we understand shock breakage, velocity matching, and powder factor are outdated and should never be used in the blasting process. New methods have taken the place of these concepts that allow blasters and engineers to make significant improvements to the drilling and blasting process. This course will cover the new updates in the basics of drilling and blasting which you will use on a daily basis in your career of blast engineering. This course will cover critical topics such as an introduction to modern blasting, how rock actually breaks from explosives, the commercial explosives and initiation systems used today, and the drilling technology available in the industry. The course is divided into short video modules with questions following each lesson to reinforce key concepts. Duration:     3 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Mining Who This Course is For This course is ideal for anyone who is working in the drilling and blasting program at a mine or works around the process and would like to gain additional background on the subject. The course is designed to give new developments in the field to the seasoned professional while also teaching someone completely new to the topic about the basics. Presenter Dr. Anthony Konya - Dr. Anthony Konya holds a PhD in explosive engineering and is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AcademyBlasting.com. Anthony has consulted around the world on blasting including blast design, presplitting, ground vibration, air overpressure, and blasting safety. Anthony has written over 50 technical articles on drilling and blasting and has developed the modern presplit breakage theory utilized in the industry. Anthony has trained hundreds of industry professionals through online courses, in-class courses and seminars, as an instructor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, and through guest lectures at the worlds leading Mining Engineering Universities and at private company events.   Need to train a team?

This course is for anyone concerned with block caving operations. It provides a general introduction to a mining method that is becoming increasing popular as we are forced to mine more and more massive, low-grade deposits. The course covers advantages and disadvantages, basic elements of block caving, design issues, the undercut level, the extraction level, haulage and ventilation, safety issues, and economic issues. Block caving is of growing interest to companies engaged in the exploitation of massive low grade ore deposits, because of its low cost and higher degree of mechanization for improved safety and greater production rates. 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 course is intended for those who have to model groundwater conditions at mines, as well as those who have to review and approve groundwater models. It is also intended for all who may have to make decisions about mines on issues that are controlled or affected by groundwater and the modeling of mine groundwater conditions. Finally, the course is intended for all who may be interested in or affected by groundwater at mines worldwide. These are the primary topics of this course. Mine groundwater conceptual models Setting up a mine-related groundwater model Calibrating the conceptual model Making predictions about future groundwater conditions during and after mining Open pits and groundwater Underground mines and groundwater Tailings, waste rock, and leach pad facilities and groundwater Mines, groundwater, and environmental impact Groundwater modeling examples in this course are provided by Soilvision Systems.

Most mining project investments are comprised of three factors: the investment is partially or completely irreversible with significant exit costs; there is uncertainty over the future returns from the investment; the investor has some latitude relating to the timing of the investment. These three factors interact to determine the optimal decisions in mining project investments. There are of a lot of unknown variables at the outset of a mining project. When the mining project is in operation, there is no crystal ball to tell exactly when the mining project will reach its maximum value. Consequently, in any mining project evaluation, there are no clear answers for the questions below. How much will the minimum initial capital cost be? How much will the maximum mine value be? How long will the optimum mine life be? This course shows you how to arrive at these essential decisions, by addressing the unknown variables with the best assumptions that can be made based on the information that is available.

Communication is an important leadership skill, yet it is a skill that is more difficult to do well than you might expect. The reason for this is that the communication process is complicated and involves others. This course uses examples to highlight the importance of communication. It investigates barriers that may be getting in the way of your attempts to communicate effectively with other people. We will look at the four primary ways we communicate: verbal, written, visual, and nonverbal messages. And we will focus on one of the primary weaknesses of effective communication—listening. Leadership Development Series Background The Leadership Development series was developed for Edumine by Dr. Elaine Cullen, President of Prima Consulting Services, and by Trudy Gallinger, Director of Curriculum Development for Prima Consulting Services. We draw upon a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from those who are thought leaders, practitioners, and professors in the art of leadership. We provide references for the many wise teachers and guides we used to create this series, and hope you will take the time to learn from them as well. How we have put the series together, however, and the unique ways we have presented the material as it relates to the mining industry, is ours alone. While each course in the series is designed to stand alone, it is highly recommended that you complete the Leadership Development - Introduction to Leadership course. This will ensure that we have a common understanding of what leadership entails, and common language to use in working through the entire course series. Authors: Elaine T.
