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.

This course is for anyone concerned with block caving operations. It provides a general introduction to a mining method that is becoming increasing popular as we are forced to mine more and more massive, low-grade deposits. The course covers advantages and disadvantages, basic elements of block caving, design issues, the undercut level, the extraction level, haulage and ventilation, safety issues, and economic issues. Block caving is of growing interest to companies engaged in the exploitation of massive low grade ore deposits, because of its low cost and higher degree of mechanization for improved safety and greater production rates. 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).

Mine Planning 1 - Strategy introduces you to key mine planning concepts. 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. 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. 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.

Beneficiation, Extraction and Metallurgical Processes is the second of two courses on extractive metallurgy by the author, written for university students as well as practicing engineers and metallurgists. Extractive metallurgy deals with ores as raw material and metals as finished products. Metallurgy has been transformed into a modern science as a result of developments in chemistry and chemical engineering. This series of courses is an introduction to the subject based in part on a course offered by the American Chemical Society under the title Metallurgical Chemistry. The full series includes... Metals, Ore Deposits and Minerals Beneficiation, Extraction and Metallurgical Processes Beneficiation, Extraction and Metallurgical Processes covers liberation and separation of minerals, extractive processes including pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, electrometallurgy, and the theory of metallurgical processes including oxidation and reduction, hydration and hydrolysis, and the energetics and kinetics of reactions.

Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis is a series of two courses that provides a practical application reference for students and practicing geoscientists concerned with 3D characterization of subsurface conditions. It provides the knowledge and background to allow useful application of geostatistics, integrated with 3D modeling and spatial analysis, in the furtherance of geoscientific objectives. Application of geostatistics in the geosciences started in the mining sector but now has significant applications in the environmental, petroleum, and geotechnical sectors. Applications include evaluation of a mineral deposit or oil reservoir, assessment of subsurface contamination, or characterization of geotechnical conditions. In practice, application of geostatistical theory requires an integrated toolbox of statistical, geostatistical, geological, spatial analysis, and visualization techniques. The Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis courses focus on the integrated approach to apply geostatistics for subsurface characterization, from a description of the data structures required, through discussion of the concepts, theory, and application, to qualification of the end results with worked examples. The courses emphasize the practical application of geostatistics and limit the presentation of geostatistical theory to the level required for a solid understanding of the techniques involved. Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 2 - Applications and Uncertainty is the second course in the series (and assumes prior completion of the companion course, Geostatistics, Modeling and Analysis 1 - Data Structures and Theory). It introduces practical applications of geostatistics in the geosciences and explains the associated statistical uncertainty of the results. The course covers areas such as uncertainty and probability, visualization and spatial analysis, practical data management, and where possible this is explained through worked examples.
