The overall discipline of accounting is generally divided into two distinct sub-disciplines: financial accounting and managerial accounting. While the two are similar in that they both generate and use financial information, they do so in different ways and for different purposes. A major difference between financial accounting and managerial accounting relates to the flexibility with which the financial information is generated and presented. Financial accounting must follow accepted accounting standards. The information is then available to individuals outside the organization and can be audited. Managerial accounting uses a decision-usefulness criterion and is oriented to the future. The information is prepared for, and used by, internal management. In fact, many companies would consider much of the information generated by the managerial accounting system to be proprietary and would definitely not wish it to be available to individuals outside the organization. It often relates to existing or attainable competitive advantages and is highly confidential. This course covers how managerial accounting can be used to help managers make decisions in the planning phase of the business cycle, within a mining context, and addresses the following topics. step-by-step examples of how to create a master budget, pro forma balance sheet, and pro forma income statement examples of relevant costing analyses to support decision-making in specific situations capital budgeting analyses of cash inflows and outflows discounted cash flow methods: net present value, internal rate of return accounting-based methods: payback, accounting rate of return Authors Craig Emby   Duration 7 Hours Access 90 Days Category Financial Level Specialize Version Date December 21, 2018   ​Need to train a team?

This course is the third in a set of three courses on Mine Planning and follows on from the previous two Mine Planning courses. Mine Planning 1 - Strategy focused on three of the five main levers for value creation as part of the strategic mine planning process (including mining method selection, process route selection and scale of operation). Mine Planning 2 - Operations then went on to illustrate the use of the final two levers including sequence and scheduling and cut-off grade policy. Mine Planning 3 - Optimization introduces you to mathematical optimization concepts which often form the basis for many of the computerized planning tools that are commercially available today. It is important to understand how these tools work and the fundamental algorithms behind them to aid the mine planning process. Scope This course focuses on the use of mathematical optimization techniques and processes. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to develop basic mathematical programming models and be able to solve this in Excel for the purpose of allocating limited resources for maximum benefit (within the mining context). Coding and scripting are beyond the scope of this course.

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.

It is assumed that course participants have a good understanding of mining terms and descriptions, have been exposed to surface and underground mining methods, are familiar with mining development, operations and production and are keen to learn how to plan a mine for the purpose of maximising value. Course participants are also expected to have a basic knowledge of rock mechanics, rock breakage, ventilation, typical mining equipment and other technical fundamentals which form the platform and constraints for generating mine plans.

Metso, like its customers, understands the pressures imposed by rapidly changing technology, and the need to do more with less. In this new business environment, education and training programs have even greater importance in the maintenance and development of a company’s intellectual capital, arguably it’s most important asset. To address the needs of the plant operators, Metso Technology Development has developed a unique computer based training system (CBT). It focuses on generic principles aimed at equipping people with the knowledge to make safer, faster and better decisions. Flotation 1 - Fundamentals is a course for process engineers, mill operators and mineral processing students. This is the first of a suite of three courses on flotation from Metso Mineral Processing Solutions... other titles include Flotation 2 - Unit Operations and Flotation 3 - Circuits. A partial list of topics covered by this course include Mineral Processing Basics, Water Properties, Particles, Slurries, Pulp Zone, Froth Zone, Flotation Kinetics, Impediments to Flotation and Mill Safety. The full Metso CBT program includes a suite of mineral processing courses for mill operators and process engineers on Crushing, Grinding and Flotation which have been adapted for Web presentation on Edumine. The program is presented by Edumine as online self-paced, self-learning courses. The Metso computer based training (CBT) videos have been integrated into the online courses, enriching the learning experience. The courses include online certification as well as performance tracking and reporting. For information on the courses, contact support@edumine.com.
