This course provides current insights and practical suggestions for implementing maintenance management as a viable and valuable asset for any industry seeking to improve its operating systems. Intended as a senior level reference for both maintenance and nonmaintenance professionals alike, Uptime provides an overview of maintenance management. It examines various elements that maintenance managers deal with and offers guidelines for maintenance success, specifically, useful information about "what" works well and "how" to achieve it. Whenever possible, the author has attempted to stay away from excessive details that are likely to be more confusing than illuminating to lay readers; he has tried to balance this by providing enough information to help the dedicated maintenance professional make informed choices. Brief "Summary" sections appear at the end of each session. These outline key points for executives and managers who want to focus on significant points without getting bogged down in minutiae.

Course Aim and Structure As a direct result of the impact of COVID-19, Edumine, along with The Imperial College Centre for Continuing Professional Development is launching its well established “Valuation of Mineral Projects Based on Technical and Financial Modelling” as a distance learning initiative covering both technical appraisal and financial evaluation of mineral projects. Market turbulence significantly affects the mining industry. While the intrinsic value of a mineral project is still a key consideration, understanding the interrelationship between technical and financial risk to truly understand the long term value of an asset, helps companies make better investment (or divestment) decisions. Companies that are able to secure debt finance for both development and acquisition of advanced projects have greater strategic flexibility. Understanding how debt impacts the valuation of projects allows for an objective approach to determining levels of gearing; this is relevant to both the investment banking and mining communities. The Valuation of Mineral Projects course is designed to address these issues. This course is for professionals with a basic to intermediate understanding of the principles of the accounting cash flow model that wish to gain expertise in quantitative finance in the context of mining. Actual operating mine valuations are a central focus of the course. To gain the most out of the course, attendees should have had some exposure to the technical aspects of minerals and mining. Attendees are expected to have laptop computers for this course. Workshop sessions are an integral part of the course delivery. Use will be made of the IC-MinEval software, which automates the generation of Excel™-based spreadsheets to produce models for a wide range of mineral projects. These models can be used independently of the software once the course is completed. Dates:          7 - 11 December 2020 Duration:     5 half days Time:           13:00 - 17:00 GMT+1. Check the exact time and date in your city here. Price:           $1999 USD See below for course policy Presenter  Professor Dennis Buchanan Professor Buchanan works jointly between the Department of Earth Science and Engineering and the Business School at Imperial College London. His current research interest lies in addressing the underlying technical principles applying to mineral projects and demonstrating how these influence financial modelling. He has almost 40 years’ experience teaching mining geology, mineral exploration and mineral project appraisal and is responsible for the MSc in Metals and Energy Finance. This is a joint degree between the Department of Earth Science and Engineering and the Business School at Imperial College. Professor Buchanan has worked as a Mining Geologist in both gold and platinum mines in South Africa and had wide experience as a consultant to the industry, as an expert witness and in designing and delivering short courses for the industry. Course Support: James Buchanan James has an MEng in Chemical Engineering with eight years of professional experience  in the minerals industry and he, with close colleagues, have recently started their own company, Zenito.  Course Structure and Delivery Delegates will be enrolled as a dedicated Team on the Microsoft Teams application where all interactions and course materials will be uploaded. The course will consist of pre-recorded presentations which will be sent to delegates 1 week before the start and during the live sessions recordings will be discussed with tutorials.  Delegates will be provided with the suite of PowerPoint slides used and a digital copy of the book 'Metals and Energy Finance' will be provided - Please click here to view the book.

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.
