The purpose of this course is to provide mine staff the tools required to effectively gather geotechnical data for rock mass classification and rock mechanics design calculations. The majority of rock falls in mine operations are structurally controlled. Design is largely controlled by existing structure. It is critical that site characterization be performed so as to identify the structural factors that would affect rock slope angles, drill and blast design, support requirements, resultant dilution and span design, etc. A good understanding of rock mass structure forms the basis of rock mass classification which is used in the majority of rock mechanics design methods. Upon completion of the course students are able to gather geotechnical data, either from rock cuts, drifts or core, and process the information for subsequent analysis. The focus of the course is towards gathering information for purposes of analysis and design. The goal is to use effective mapping techniques to obtain data that can be used as input for any of the established rock classification systems. All of the commonly used classification values such as Barton's Q and Q' systems, Bieniawski's RMR, Laubscher's MRMR and Hoek's GSI systems are covered.

Ethics and morals are principles of behavior that are derived from ancient times. Today's complex world inserts ambiguities into a professional's desire to behave ethically. This course provides a firm understanding and basis for engineers, geologists, managers, and operators in exploration and mining to behave ethically. The course begins with definitions of ethics and an explanation of the importance of ethical behavior, including a discussion of written codes of ethical behavior; gives a historical basis; then moves to a discussion of ambiguities in ethics along with systems that enhance compliance; discusses whistle-blowing and its consequences; and, finally, presents some well-known mine failure examples in terms of their ethical lapses. Examples of ethical and regulatory codes and real-world failures are drawn from multiple jurisdictions. Note: This course focuses on codes used by professional organizations and societies in the United States and Canada. The ethics principles covered in the course are universal. This course is targeted to professionals who work in mineral exploration, in particular: licensed professional engineers, geologists, program designers, and operational managers. Upon completing this course, diligent learners will be able to perform their job in an ethical manner. This implies the learner has the knowledge base to perform the job, take responsibility for their performance, and knowingly avoid doing harm to others. Successful completion of the course means the learner will know of the ethical and regulatory codes appropriate to their position. Authors Lee W.

Mining Explained is a layperson's guide to mining that has become a respected reference. It is published in book format by the Northern Miner, a Canadian mining newspaper since 1915. This online course is developed from the 11th edition of Mining Explained. This respected reference on exploration, mining and metallurgy and investing explains in layperson's terms how minerals are discovered, extracted, refined and marketed. Also included is an extensive 33 page glossary of mining terms. This course covers Basic Geology, Prospecting, Sampling and Drilling, Mining Methods, Metals Markets, Investing in Mining... and much more.

This is the second of two courses by the author on valuation of mineral properties. The first course, Mineral Property Valuation 1 - Standards and Guidelines, covers the development, requirements and application of international standards and guidelines for mineral property valuation. It focuses on the CIMVAL Standards and Guidelines, developed by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, and their relationship with National Instrument NI 43-101 for mineral project reporting. Mineral Property Valuation 2 - Approaches and Methods covers the full range of valuation methods available based on cost, market and income approaches, with numerous examples. The different methods are discussed in terms of concept, application, data requirements, methodology, strengths and weaknesses.

This course is intended for professional engineers and geoscientists concerned with mineral project reporting for an issuer on a Canadian stock exchange. It is also a reference source of mineral project reporting standards for property owners, securities analysts, and regulators. The course provides guidance for the preparation of a technical report under National Instrument 43-101—Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, Form 43-101 F1—Technical Report, and Companion Policy 43-101 CP (NI 43-101). NI 43-101 establishes the standards for all public disclosure of scientific and technical information about a mineral project. NI 43-101 became effective on February 1, 2001 and is a law applicable across Canada. It requires that all disclosure be based on advice provided by a "qualified person" and in some circumstances that the person be independent of the issuer and the property. NI 43-101 also requires that issuers file technical reports at specific times and in a prescribed format. This course has been revised to the version of National Instrument 43-101 published April 8, 2011, which became effective law in Canada on June 30, 2011. The course also considers all amendments to National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects up until May 9, 2016. 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).
