The Design for Underground Metal Mines courses have been written with the mine operator in mind. Numerous conferences, papers and texts have been written on the procedures to gather and analyze data for implementing into a design process. Although there is wide experience and expertise in the design of mine openings, it has not previously been compiled into courses that enable users to engineer their work place based upon past experience and practice augmented by sound engineering principles. Mining is a dynamic process which requires in excess of thousands of cubic metres of openings to be developed daily over the life of a mining operation. Those openings may be for development and/or production purposes, however all cases must be designed so as to ensure the required behaviour. The site engineer therefore, must design the mine opening or pillars after addressing all issues relevant to the design and assessment of the overall behaviour. These courses are designed to give the operator a design procedure that has been developed in conjunction with academia and practicing operations. This design procedure has been implemented at over twenty underground metal mines around the world. The courses reference numerous authors in the field and apply their findings to arrive at tools for design. The geomechanics design group at the University of British Columbia has been instrumental in developing the design curves presented here along with the direction and sponsorship of CANMET and mining operations throughout Canada. Design Parameters is the first of two Design for Underground Metal Mines courses by the author. The companion course is Design Guidelines. Design Parameters provides the necessary background, in terms of input parameters for stress, structure, rock mass characterization, failure criteria and support procedures, for the design principles presented in the companion course.

We frequently see in the news that a mining or an oil and gas operation in some remote area has been either attacked by insurgents or has had their security arrangements linked with a human rights incident. The extractive industries have the dual responsibility of protecting their people and operations as well as respecting the human rights of their employees and the members of the communities in which they work. Often operating in increasingly unstable areas and with human rights growing as a salient topic, industries face significant challenges in balancing these two crucial responsibilities. Developed jointly by industry, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the Voluntary Principles for Security and Human Rights (VPSHR) have increasingly become the industry guideline for achieving this balance. The VPSHR's three components provide a set of guiding principles on how companies should manage: risk assessments relations with public security forces relations with private security providers This course introduces you to the VPSHR, discusses risk assessment in the context of providing a secure working environment and protecting the human rights of employees and surrounding communities, and responsibilities concerned with human rights abuse allegations and the procedures for managing those allegations. It goes on to discuss the roles and responsibilities of public and private security forces and their relationship to management.

Underground Mining Methods and Equipment is intended as both a course and a technical reference for an audience of engineers, operators, contractors, consultants, regulators, practising geoscientists and students in the mining sector. The course provides a comprehensive introduction and reference for those who require a solid grounding in selection, design and development of mining methods and equipment. Mining method selection is based upon physical, geological, economical and environmental conditions and constraints. Equipment selection is based upon mining method and related production, performance and cost requirements. Principal course topics include the following. Introductions to underground mining methods, equipment and basic requirements. Mining methods and their application for room and pillar, sublevel stoping, shrinkage stoping, vertical retreat, cut and fill, longwall mining, sublevel caving, block caving, square set mining and other methods. Layout and design of underground mine development and equipment requirements. Equipment and selection for drilling, drifting, production, raising, shaft sinking, loading and hauling. Development and production estimation and costing (note - all costing and estimation information within the course were upgraded to current industry values as of 2012). 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).

Underground Mine Backfill 1 - Introduction is the first in a set of two Underground Mine Backfill courses. This course is intended as an introduction to mine backfill properties, types, uses, mining methods and system layout. Underground Mine Backfill 2 - Slurry, Paste and Rock Fills reviews each backfill type and its preparation, distribution, stope preparation and placement practices as well as relevant safety and quality control issues. A review quiz can be found at the end of each section to evaluate your understanding of the material presented. The objective of the courses is to provide an overview of common underground mine backfill practices and technologies for mine technical personnel. The goals are to: Provide a standard from which operators can understand the basic principles and practices for using underground mine backfill. Provide an understanding of how critical the role of backfill and backfill personnel are for mining. Provide a common foundation for backfill training. Provide a uniform backfill terminology. Provide an understanding of the various stages of backfill systems. Provide an understanding of potential hazards to personnel and equipment safety in order to prevent backfill-related accidents. As many companies have site- and company-specific standards for their unique situations, training for specific operational duties is beyond the scope of this course and is left to mine site-training procedures. This course is not intended to replace existing mine training practices, but to complement them as a common reference. Authors James Archibald David O.
