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).

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.

Conflict is an inevitable part of the human experience. Since we all have different experiences, beliefs, expectations, goals, cultures, and values, it is impossible for us to agree on everything. These disagreements will predictably lead to conflict. It is also a very human characteristic to believe that what we know and believe is the truth, and that those who see things differently must be wrong. The result? Conflict. As a leader, your challenge is not to prevent conflict, but to make sure differences between or among employees, between yourself and employees, or between employees and your company do not become dysfunctional. Conflict in itself is not a bad thing—it is often a catalyst for change. If you take the time to understand the causes of conflicts in your workplace, and help your employees negotiate peaceful resolutions or compromises, you can use this energy in a positive way. This course will show you where conflicts often arise, why they happen, and offer suggestions on how you, the leader, can deal with them constructively.
