The Mill Operating Resource is even more than its name implies. As well as a resource for people who need to understand and operate the equipment used in mineral processing, it also provides the base knowledge required to understand new technology. While applications and materials are always evolving, the laws and principles that these are developed from are fixed. The author, in his spare time a writer and illustrator, has more than 30 years of experience supervising and directing mill operations in Canada. It is from this background and his own training needs that the resource has been developed. The resource is presented as a set of two courses... The Mill Operating Resource - 1: Ore Preparation and - 2: Mineral Recovery. This course carries on from The Mill Operating Resource - 1: Ore Preparation by addressing classifiers, pumps, flotation methods, leaching and other methods, thickeners, filters, dryers, evolving technology, and mill safety. If you are an operator and you are feeling challenged by the "why" of things or intimidated by technology, then certification in this course will give you the knowledge to fully participate in the technical workings of a mineral processing plant. The grounding you will receive in mechanical design, plant maintenance, electricity, metallurgy, hydrometallurgy, environmental monitoring, emergency response, instrumentation, safety, fire fighting, and regulatory constraints will enable you to recognize problems as they are developing, initiate the appropriate responses, and better understand new technologies as you encounter them. You will also have a better appreciation of your job requirements and be able to communicate more effectively with engineers and managers. If you are a manager, engineer, training supervisor, metallurgical technician, or front-line supervisor this resource is still for you! It provides practical knowledge, experience, and insight into how these multi-disciplinary processes work in practice and what to look out for when problems arise. But the greatest benefit of this resource derives from its value as a tool that can be used to enhance the productivity of your plant, and a platform from which to construct your own training curriculum. The resource provides a wealth of information that is missing from most in-house training programs. Most importantly, it provides knowledge continuity and standardized testing to aid in the evaluation and development of your operating personnel. The resource can also be used as a prerequisite to employment to ensure commitment and ability. Other advantages include: testing and certification, improved employee morale, increased safety awareness, improved circuit management, decrease in downtime and/or equipment damage, and increased understanding of technological change.

Este curso introductorio sobre cianuro proporciona una introducción no técnica para el uso y manejo global del cianuro, incluyendo la producción de oro, química del cianuro, análisis, toxicidad, tratamiento, riesgos y manejo. Este curso está diseñado para proporcionar una amplia perspectiva del uso del cianuro y cómo se compara con otros químicos que se usan en el mundo. El cianuro fue utilizado por primera vez para la minería del oro en Nueva Zelandia y Sudáfrica hace más de un siglo. La cianuración sigue siendo uno de los métodos más eficientes para la lixiviación de oro y plata de las menas. El ácido cianhídrico (HCN) fue descubierto por el químico Sueco Carl Scheele en 1782. En gran parte, el temor y mal entendimiento que rodea al cianuro está relacionado con su uso en ejecuciones, como reactivo en guerra química y en incidentes como el de la cápsula de Tylenol y el suicidio en masa de Guyana hace muchos años. Existe mucha confusión y mala información en cuanto al impacto real del uso de cianuro en la industria minera de oro. Este curso introductorio intenta disipar los mitos y misterios que rodean al cianuro y proporcionar datos y cifras confiables. Cursos posteriores sobre el cianuro detallan aspectos técnicos específicos que se destacan en este curso introductorio. Este curso comienza con un examen de la producción, el uso y transporte del cianuro por el mundo, seguido por una discusión de sus propiedades técnicas, riesgos y manejo.

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.

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).
