The predominant economic evaluation technique for a mineral project, from pre-feasibility study stage to operating mine, is the discounted cash flow (DCF) method. A DCF evaluation will include a detailed year-by-year cash flow projection spanning the life of the mineral reserves plus the DCF metrics of net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR). DCF methodology is accepted by industry, the financial community and regulatory bodies. This course examines the requirements, practice, and application of DCF methodology, as well as insights into the potential pitfalls to be found in such evaluations. Principal course topics include: Discounted Cash Flow Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) Determination of Discount Rate Metal Price, Inflation, Debt and Taxes Targeting, Scoping and Ranking Optimizing Production Rate and Project Size Project Expansion Analysis Trade-Off Analysis Equivalent Annual Cost Analysis The course includes practical applications of DCF methodology, with examples, to project evaluation, mineral process selection, process optimization, project expansion, selection of equipment and comparison of alternatives. This course is designed for an audience of mining professionals and managers who require a practical understanding of economic evaluation and financial analysis methods and their application to mineral projects.

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.

This course introduces an approach to local economic and community development that focuses on the creation of a "parallel economy" in communities impacted by the extractive industry - an economy that may be inspired and sustained by the increased population and economic output of the mine but that is entrepreneurial in nature and focused on strengthening local capacity for wealth creation. Enterprise Facilitation® is a community development methodology whose aim is to assist local, self motivated entrepreneurs to transform their own ideas into viable enterprises. The approach, used in community development for the past 25 years, has come to the attention of mining companies for its ability to engender not only sustainable development in communities but also a local "can do" attitude that promotes community pride and long-lasting gratitude for the providers of the Enterprise Facilitation® service.

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.
