In this course, we discuss the water and chemical mass balance of a mine site and the many components or facilities that go to make up a mine. There are as many water and chemical mass balances as there are mines. And there are as many mass balances as there are facilities on a mine. In this course we focus on the fundamental theories and methods and illustrate these with examples that are intended to assist and guide in compiling water and chemical mass balances for a mine and its various facilities. This course is one of a series of related courses, others in the series include: Groundwater in Mining Surface Water Management at Mines Objectives Reasons for undertaking a facility or site water balance study may include: evaluating strategies for optimum use of limited water supplies; establishing procedures for limiting site discharge and complying with discharge requirements; estimating the demands on water treatment plants, holding ponds, evaporation ponds, or wetlands.

Course overview Learn and apply geophysical concepts, methods, and industry practices to deliver meaningful results and value to mining projects. You also get access to a three month All-Access Subscription to Edumine enabling you to learn from the 110+ on-demand courses offered on a variety of topics.  Duration Delivery Start Date  PD Hours Language 40 Hours / 8 weeks 100% online 22 April 2024 Up to 40 English   Gain a solid understanding of geophysical concepts to help you better prepare statement of works, obtain quotes, interpret geophysics reports and work with geophysicists.  Whether you're a design engineer or project manager, this detailed introduction to geophysics will enable you to understand, apply and harness geophysics for mining and infrastructure projects, as well as communicate confidently with other industry geophysicists. Over 8 weeks, the course introduces participants to geophysical concepts, methods, and industry practices, combined with an in-depth analysis of real-world applications supported by industry case studies. Learn current methods and how to apply them; and explore an introduction into data interpretation with respect to their aim. AusIMM’s Geophysics for Mining Professionals Professional Certificate allows participants to gain more value from geophysical applications. The course has been designed to clarify confusion and provide practical skills that can be immediately applied. This is especially relevant for applications where conventional physical methods such as drilling are not providing adequate or detailed subsurface information; for planning purposes; engineering design inputs; tailings storage facility construction; or future life of mine planning. This course is especially well suited to roles that may touch upon geophysics, such as those who: Coordinate a job site Prepare statement of works Obtain quotes Work with geophysicists Interpret geophysics reports Project managers Construction engineers Design engineers With few academic opportunities to learn about geophysics, this online course offers a convenient way to meet the industry’s need for educated staff in this poorly understood but business-critical field by exploring topics like: Overview and history of geophysics Theory of commonly used geophysical methods Scientific interpretation Industry applications Broaden your knowledge and advance your career, while also gaining skills to avoid outsourcing, or to better interact with external geophysics professionals.  Course structure The eight-week course consists of six modules over six weeks, with a final two weeks to complete written assessments. Each module consists of: Weekly live virtual classroom (with replay available) Interactive learning activities and discussion Multiple choice questions Additional materials, including case studies and videos The written assessment requires participants to complete short answer questions that address the content presented in each module.
