This is a course for managers, professionals, students and concerned stakeholders in mining who require a better understanding of the impacts of mining on the environment and communities.The course discusses the underlying causes which have shaped the public's evolving perception of the mining industry and presents ways in which mining companies can overcome these perceptions. The following subjects are covered: Separating Fact from Fiction Characteristics of Mining Canadian Mining Facts Mining Images - OK Tedi, Porgera, Grasberg and others Public Perception of Mining Promotion of Mining Mining and Communities Adding Value to Communities Authors Marcello Veiga Stephen Roberts   Duration: 7 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Leadership Level: Introduce Version Date: January 17, 2013 ​Need to train a team?

This course is intended for a broad-based audience of managers, professionals, students and concerned stakeholders in mining who require an understanding of the concepts and issues of sustainable development. Sustainable Development in Mining focuses on the underlying concepts and issues that apply specifically to the mining industry. Included are the sustainable development concepts of... economic growth that preserves the earth's biophysical integrity; optimization of the societal benefits of economic development; system quality... which systems should be preserved/improved; a more equitable distribution of the benefits and burdens of economic growth ... both within the present generation and between present and future generations; greater public participation in the decision-making process. These concepts are illustrated by numerous case studies and examples from mining projects, and further supported by a discussion of mineral consumption, recycling and resource depletion.

Since the industrial revolution, workers' health and safety have become important labour issues. With the advent of corporate governance and the "Duty of Care" principle—a legal obligation where rather than having the company being responsible, the responsibility has shifted to individuals—it became necessary to manage risk proactively. Despite this, hundreds of people are killed each year in accidents at work and at the same time millions of people are injured and maimed. In addition millions more suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work. Preventing accidents and ill health caused by work should be a key priority for everyone at work. This course provides basic information and risk management tools that can be used by individuals to look after their own well-being at work, or to use as they build a risk management program that will enable the proactive prevention of unwanted events in their workplaces. This course consists of the following five parts. Introduction and Terminology Hazards in Perspective Situational Awareness Risk Techniques and Controls Job Safety Analysis This training course was developed to help individuals learn how to manage safety risks by explaining what they should or should not (often as important!) do, and by providing information to then be able to take informed and appropriate actions. This training is different from formal "classroom" training courses as it provides the individual with the opportunity to pace themselves and try out the newfound knowledge in their own workplace, while having the course material easily accessible as reference. Participating in health and safety training helps you to: ensure you are not injured or made ill by the work you do; develop a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to you; and find out how you could manage health and safety better.

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.

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; indicate new uses of minerals. Process Mineralogy 1 for Metals presents the basic tools of process mineralogy and their application primarily with respect to metals, illustrated by numerous examples. Topics covered include the following. Importance of process mineralogy for mining, mineral processing and metallurgy; definition of raw materials; different sources of raw materials; techniques used in process mineralogy; important mineralogical aspects for mineral concentration and leaching. Analytical techniques used in process mineralogy to identify and quantify minerals and for chemical analysis; principles of optical microscopy; use of the polarizing microscope to identify minerals; transmitted and reflected light. Quantitative mineralogical analysis using optical microscopy; point counting; degree of liberation by the Gaudin method; image analysis. Mineralogical analysis by x-ray diffraction; principles of x-ray generation and diffraction; quantitative XRD methods; use of x-ray fluorescence for chemical analysis. Electron microscopy; scanned and transmitted beams; interaction of electrons with matter; x-ray maps; identification of minerals. Quantitative mineralogical analysis using mineral separation; heavy liquid separation; density gradient; study of mineral liberation using heavy liquids and flotation; study of gold liberation. Quantitative mineralogical analysis based on chemical composition of minerals; mass balance techniques. Application of process mineralogy to coal and industrial minerals is covered in a companion course titled Process Mineralogy 2 for Coal and Industrial Minerals.

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.
