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).

A comprehensive treatment of all aspects of underground mining, from exploration, feasibility, design and development, to production, ventilation, backfill and drainage. This course provides a detailed, practical reference for engineers, mine operators, technicians and students. Underground Mining Practice is based on the author's 50 years of experience as a mining engineer in operations, consulting, teaching and research, specializing in mining and geotechnical engineering, mine planning, audits and training, and development, review and monitoring of mining R&D programs. Underground mining topics covered by the course include: the role of mine planning; information and reporting systems; orebody exploration; mine development and preparation; ground control and backfill; explosives and fragmentation; production, rock breaking and delivery; primary and auxiliary ventilation; usage, reticulation and storage of fill; pumping and drainage; geotechnical investigation; mine layout design.

Contouring of irregular spatial data by hand has been used by geoscientists for many decades. Contouring using a computer is relatively new and has become more widely used in the earth sciences only in the last 20 years. The availability of inexpensive microcomputer hardware and software makes the use of a computer for contouring affordable for nearly everyone. Gridding and contouring software has become flexible enough to satisfy nearly all needs for contouring with speed and convenience. Computer contouring is not perfect, so it is necessary to constantly be on guard and check results for artifacts and make sure the contour results are representative of the data. This course will help build awareness of what to watch for when using each contour method, when a method is most suitable, and when it is not. Since the early 1980's, we have experienced a significant increase in access to computer programs for contouring, as well as a large variety of computer algorithms. Books have been written about the algorithms and how they are used. The purpose of this course is to pull together information on the most commonly used contouring algorithms and reveal the 'secrets' of how and why they are used. These 'secrets' are not really secrets, but to find all this information you have to dig through many books, use the algorithms (hundreds of times) and observe results. We have explored all these resources for you and present the findings in this course. Hand contouring is still done by some people, and the first section of the course covers hand contouring methods, when to use them, and the pitfalls to avoid. Understanding hand contouring is a first step to using contour software effectively. Author Betty L. Gibbs Dr. Stephen A.

This course is aimed at helping those who wish to read and interpret the financial statements of mining companies. It assumes the reader has no formal training or background in accounting but does have a general interest in business with a leaning towards mining. Furthermore, this course assumes a managerial or investor approach rather than that of accountant or bookkeeper. We look at financial statements for their organization, information content and limitations. In short, you will not learn any bookkeeping or debits and credits but rather you will see numerical data and narrative-based descriptions prepared by mining companies. You will learn to use various analytical tools. Simplified fictional examples and actual published reports are used to illustrate various concepts. A brief glossary and a source of further information appear in an Appendix. The course has six primary topics as follows, separated into three parts. This course was formerly entitled Understanding Financial Statements of Mining Companies Under IASB and FASB Regulations. Part 1 Introduction to Accounting and Financial Reports The Statement of Financial Position Part 2 The Statement of Income Part 3 The Cash Flow Statement The Statement of Changes in Equity Notes and Analytical Tools Accounting Standards Financial reporting today is governed by essentially two sets of accounting regulations—those of the United States, through its Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and those of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In this course, both sets of regulations are treated as one agreed-upon set of concepts, principles and guidelines where appropriate. Differences are highlighted wherever they occur. Where there is agreement or the differences are minimal, the common term GAAP is used, which stands for Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

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.

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.
