This course concentrates on the systems, methodology, and practical applications seen within site security as it is applied to the mining and extraction industries. In particular, how an event or policy might influence risk; threat and impact will be outlined as well as several assessment methods. The course emphasises the need to implement proper management structures and provides examples of leadership processes that are fit for purpose and effective. The issues raised in this course will be of great help to security professionals as well as other managers involved in heavy industry, especially when operating in underdeveloped or unstable regions. The practical measures that can be taken to deter an attack and how best to respond if one occurs are skills all managers should appreciate. Instigating local community support and effective legal risk management are also very useful tools for when properly applied a reduction in litigation may well occur.

This course is the second in a set of three courses on Mine Planning. Mine Planning 2 - Operations introduces you to the key mine planning concepts of sequence and scheduling as well as cut-off grade. The mine planning process is complex and integrates several technical branches of the mining discipline including rock mechanics, rock breakage, ventilation and mine design. While mine planners should endeavour to design and implement plans that are safe, environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable, the overriding factor in the success of a mining operation and what ultimately determines whether it will proceed through feasibility studies and onto construction and development is the level of profitability. The drive to exploit a mineral resource such that it adds as much value as possible to the mining business requires a continual update of the mine plan and the rapid implementation of any value adding opportunities as they arise. Scope This course focuses on the main concepts associated with investigating the financial impact of a number of key levers on the value of a mine plan. This course does not investigate core technical concepts required in mining. It is assumed that all technical parameters have been established and are feasible. The focus therefore turns to establishing financial optimality by planning and generating the best mine plan. This course also does not teach the use of mine planning and design software which in some cases may incorporate the concepts discussed within.

This course covers the fundamentals of mobile mining equipment product support contracts. The underlying ideas have been developed and tested at sites globally since 1982. The scope is confined to large surface mining vehicles: haul trucks, shovels, rotary drills, and support equipment. The course provides background to the evolution of mining equipment product support contracts followed by an overview of the primary types of product support contracts offered in the mining industry (including their features, commercial terms, and administration). It also describes risks and mitigation strategies as well as key management issues that need to be addressed for a product support contract to succeed. The course is intended for mining professionals who are engaged in the maintenance process, either in line functions or in consulting roles, whether they are designing programs or delivering them. It is also a course that will help professionals in other functions at a mining operation or consulting company to understand the maintenance setting. The companion course Maintenance 101: Mobile Mining Equipment covers the fundamentals of mobile mining equipment maintenance for large surface mining vehicles.

This course covers the fundamentals of mobile mining equipment maintenance. It covers issues that are fundamental to the design or improvement of maintenance operations; the underlying ideas have been developed and tested at sites globally since 1982. The scope is confined to large surface mining vehicles: haul trucks, shovels, rotary drills, and support equipment. The course is organized into four sections. People—discusses the skills, organization and productivity factors necessary to deliver effective maintenance; Process—defines the strategic, planning and scheduling, execution, and measurement attributes inherent to maintenance of large mobile equipment; Technology—explains the technical environment present at most mines and discusses the key systems that affect mobile maintenance; and Facilities—outlines the operating objectives and functional requirements for successful maintenance infrastructure. The course is intended for mining professionals who are engaged in the maintenance process, either in line functions or in consulting roles, whether they are designing programs or delivering them. It is also a course that will help professionals in other functions at a mining operation or consulting company to understand the maintenance setting. The companion course Maintenance 101: Product Support Contracts describes the details of each type of contract, risks and mitigation strategies, and why certain contract types may be appropriate under specific circumstances where suppliers play a critical role in supporting mobile equipment maintenance.

Communication is an important leadership skill, yet it is a skill that is more difficult to do well than you might expect. The reason for this is that the communication process is complicated and involves others. This course uses examples to highlight the importance of communication. It investigates barriers that may be getting in the way of your attempts to communicate effectively with other people. We will look at the four primary ways we communicate: verbal, written, visual, and nonverbal messages. And we will focus on one of the primary weaknesses of effective communication—listening. Leadership Development Series Background The Leadership Development series was developed for Edumine by Dr. Elaine Cullen, President of Prima Consulting Services, and by Trudy Gallinger, Director of Curriculum Development for Prima Consulting Services. We draw upon a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from those who are thought leaders, practitioners, and professors in the art of leadership. We provide references for the many wise teachers and guides we used to create this series, and hope you will take the time to learn from them as well. How we have put the series together, however, and the unique ways we have presented the material as it relates to the mining industry, is ours alone. While each course in the series is designed to stand alone, it is highly recommended that you complete the Leadership Development - Introduction to Leadership course. This will ensure that we have a common understanding of what leadership entails, and common language to use in working through the entire course series. Authors: Elaine T.
