Economic Geology 101 is a course for beginners in exploration geology, people requiring a basic understanding of ore deposits, students, and anyone who is inquisitive about mineral deposits and how these form. The course provides an overview of the three major rock types (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks), and introduces the geologic processes that form or influence ore deposits. In this course, you will learn about ore deposits that are typical for various metals, including abundant metals (iron, manganese, titanium) as well as scarce base (nickel, copper, lead, zinc) and precious (platinum group elements, gold and silver) metals. World-renowned deposits are described and illustrated with numerous figures and photographs. This course is based on the Geological Framework for the Business of Exploration and Mining, authored by David Groves, produced by Market Motion Media.

The Case for Proactive Risk/Crisis Evaluation During the last 20 years, experts monitored the crisis readiness of the Fortune 500 companies and classified them in two groups: proactive companies that evaluated and prepared for crises; reactive companies that dealt with crises as they occurred. The results of that long term monitoring effort were simple. The proactive companies: live longer face less crises do better in financial terms have a better corporate reputation Crisis prepared companies: suffer fewer crises recover faster are more profitable The frightening reality highlighted by this research was that less than 25 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were proactive! There are no immune industries... mining is as susceptible to risk and crises as any other industry. This course will show you how to be proactive, and give you the background and tools to evaluate risk and to plan and prepare for crises. In short, it will show you how to engineer for success in mining.

Today, sustainability is the key to the future success of mining and we carefully consider the long-term impacts of operations on our local communities. Sustainability means we consider the economical, environmental, cultural, and social aspects in the development of our operations as we strive to benefit local communities in the way we benefit from operating as their neighbours. Sound environmental practices result in improved air, water, land, and heritage resources. Benefits accrue to the environment, our people, our families, the broader community, and future generations. They also result in credibility with local communities in being able to manage the local resource and access to further resources in the future. Your company should be committed to providing guidelines, management, personnel, and resources necessary to minimise potential adverse effects of its operations on the environment and human health.

This course is the first of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It has been prepared with the intention of providing mining personnel with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Preparedness, i.e. how to start managing and preparing for an environmental emergency. The second course focuses on Environmental Emergency Response. With a little adaptation using local information, such as local emergency contacts and the inclusion of MSDS sheets and local emergency procedures, the guidelines in this course can be applied to any mining or processing operation. They can also be used in a site Environmental Management System (EMS), site Environmental Management Plan (EMP), and/or site Emergency Management Preparedness and Response Plan. At the very least, these guidelines can be used as a site emergency planning and response checklist. This course is split into three parts: Part 1: Environmental Emergencies, including discussion of their occurrence, outcomes, and risk analysis. Part 2: Corporate Governance, including discussion of corporate strategy, management, and an example of risk reduction. Part 3: Preparedness Plans, including discussion of plans to deal with possible or probable emerging emergencies or disasters, plans to manage after-effects of an emergency or disaster, an emergency preparedness checklist, and the level of emergency services typically provided by government.

This course is the second of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It has been prepared with the intention of providing mining personnel with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Response, i.e. how to respond to a variety of environmental emergencies. The first course focuses on Environmental Emergency Preparedness. With a little adaptation using local information, such as local emergency contacts and the inclusion of MSDS sheets and local emergency procedures, the guidelines in this course can be applied to any mining or processing operation. They can also be used in a site Environmental Management System (EMS), site Environmental Management Plan (EMP), and/or site emergency management Preparedness and Response Plan. At the very least, these guidelines can be used as a site emergency planning and response checklist. This course is split into four parts: Part 1 - The Generic EHS Emergency Response Plan Part 2 - Response Planning for Chemical Spills Part 3 - Response Planning for Oil Spills Part 4 - Response Planning for a Hazardous Gas Emergency Authors Ralph Gunness   Duration: 5 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Safety Level: Specialize Version Date: October 6, 2003 Read More

This is a course for anyone concerned with sustainable community relationships in mining: professionals, managers, regulators, NGOs, community leaders and graduate students. The course explains how a mining company can earn and maintain a social license to operate. It begins with the business case for dedicating resources to the social license and describes the returns a company could expect from each successive level of license. The course also explores what can be done to make the issuer of the license more politically stable so that the company's social political risk is reduced and the community's readiness for sustainable development is enhanced. Finally the course looks at the overlap between these activities and areas of corporate social responsibility, corporate citizenship, and sustainability reporting. Part 1 of the course explains what a social license to operate is, why it is important to mining companies, and how the general management theory known as the "resource dependence view of competitive advantage" explains how relationships with stakeholders affect project feasibility and success. Going deeper, Part 2 describes the four levels of social license and the three boundary criteria that must be met to go from one level to another, and examines common factors that can cause the level of social license to rise or fall. Turning to the issuer of the social license, Part 3 of the course draws on social network analysis concepts to explore the many ways a community could be unable to issue a social license that is durable and socially legitimate, and looks beneath the stakeholder politics at the social capital patterns that can improve a community's capacity to issue a solid social license, while simultaneously raising the level of social license the community grants to the company.
