This is a concise course on rock engineering for non-engineers in mining. The course addresses rock engineering issues for personnel of mining companies who are not directly involved in mining: people like managers, metallurgists, field geologists... even accountants, secretaries and lawyers. This course has been given to mining companies and mining operations around the world, primarily so that non-engineering personnel can understand what operations personnel need at the mine site level. The goal is to give non-engineering personnel an appreciation of the volume of rock failures and their implications.   A Rock Engineering Primer for Non-Engineers in Mining consists of 7 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, tables and examples, plus interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 3 hours of viewing content.

An Introduction to Modelling Metal Project Finance serves as an introduction to the critical issues associated with the debt financing of mining projects. The aims and objectives of project financing are discussed with an overview of the steps leading up to application. The course is aimed at professionals throughout the mining industry and assumes a basic appreciation of the main financial parameters. Logical guidelines on how to construct a preliminary level cash flow model of project finance are provided, with descriptions of the major input variables. Nickel and platinum are used as example commodities with which to demonstrate the principles of modelling project finance. A background discussion on the technical aspects and major costs involved in developing a large-scale open pit nickel mining project is followed by a step by step guide to the development of a financial model of the project using the financial modelling software tool IC-MinEval. Similarly, background discussion on platinum mining is followed by a step by step guide to developing a financial model of an underground platinum mining project using IC-MinEval. The workbooks generated by IC-MinEval are also included as downloadable spreadsheets for each worked example. A case example is included from Prof. Buchanan's book, Metals and Energy Finance (2018).

Probability graphs display a data set as a cumulative distribution. The most significant use of probability graphs applied to mineral exploration data is in the recognition of the number of populations in a data set, and the partial or complete partitioning of individual values into their respective groups or populations. The significance of the resulting groupings or populations of data must be interpreted. Interpreting probability graphs is largely a matter of understanding the implications of the patterns that result when data sets are plotted. These implications are not always fully appreciated, and in some cases, the conclusions drawn from the probability graphs are incorrect. In this course, you will learn how probability graphs can supplement analyses done using histograms, and how this can be beneficial when interpreting mineral exploration data. The course explains data distributions and populations. You will learn that probability graphs are an easy way to estimate the forms of distributions and their parameters. They are a useful tool to present and analyze many types of numeric data that are the product of mineral exploration programs. The course also highlights general advantages, but also limitations of using probability graphs, and provides useful procedure tips to draw up the graphs. Note that this course assumes a working knowledge of simple statistical concepts (e.g. arithmetic mean, variance, standard deviation, normal density distribution, etc.). The course content uses a clear-cut, idealized approach illustrated by real life practical examples used throughout the mining industry. The Appendix includes a variety of interpretations of published probability graphs with alternate interpretations and discussion on the analytical approaches used by the original publications.

Process mineralogy combines mineralogical techniques with mineral process unit operations to identify minerals, their associations and characteristics in order to... establish feasibility concepts at the early stages of geological exploration; design processing flowsheets; specify raw materials and marketable products; troubleshoot plants; and indicate new uses of minerals. Process Mineralogy 2 for Coal and Industrial Minerals is the second of two courses on process mineralogy by the author. It presents application of the basic tools of investigative and analytical mineralogy with respect to coal and industrial minerals, illustrated by numerous examples, including... coal petrology; industrial minerals: diatomite, clay and calcium carbonate; and industrial minerals: structural clay, glass, cement and advanced ceramics. Together with the companion course, Process Mineralogy 1 for Metals (which also covers the investigative and analytical tools of process mineralogy), this course provides an excellent introduction to process mineralogy for all mining disciplines.

A tenet of investment is that if the risks of an investment are high, then the investor should be compensated for assuming the risks by a high potential return from the investment. However, quite often the risks associated with an investment are not known or understood. The results vary but may include an investment evaluation that is not representative, a bad investment decision, and low returns or even losses. Inadequate technical or financial information is the main reason risks are not taken into account or are misunderstood. Unfortunately, lack of such information is a common situation in mining and other large industrial projects. No amount of investment evaluation or analysis can compensate for lack of information. If the risks are known and can be characterized in some way, methods of investment analysis can be used to provide a quantitative assessment of the risks. One goal of this course is to describe methods for risk quantification, their advantages and limitations, and to give realistic (if not real) examples of their application. Fortunately these methods are simple so that complete evaluation of an investment is (or at least should be) a simple process. Topics covered in this course include: Revenues, Costs and Cash Flows Discount Rates Project Financing Metal Prices and Markets Mining Costs Uncertainties Real Options Authors Dr. Scott Dunbar   Duration 18 hours Access 90 Days Category Financial Level Specialize Version Date May 23, 2012 ​Need to train a team?

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?
