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   ​Need to train a team?

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.

Si usted es un geólogo de exploración, un ingeniero de minas, un ingeniero metalúrgico, un contador de minas o un profesional de cualquier otra especialidad relacionada con la minería, en algún momento le pedirán hacer una estimación de costos, se sienta calificado o no. Después de todo, la minería es un esfuerzo económico y, después de la seguridad, el costo de la minería y sus procesos relacionados es una de las consideraciones más importantes en ese esfuerzo. Este curso presenta una introducción a las metodologías de estimación de costos, y lo prepara para completar una estimación fiable. El curso se centra en los métodos de estimación de costos detallados en el contexto de un plan de la mina. Cubre los costos de excavación, carga, transporte, perforación y equipos auxiliares, así como los costos de suministros, personal, descarpe y otros requerimientos.

If you are an exploration geologist, a mining engineer, a metallurgist, a mine accountant, or a practitioner of any of a number of other mining-related specialties, at some time you will be asked to do a cost estimate. Mining is an economic endeavor, and, after safety, the cost of mining and its related processes is one of the most important considerations in that endeavor. This course introduces you to the methodologies of mining cost estimating, and prepares you to complete a credible estimate. The course focuses on itemized cost estimating methods in the context of a mine plan. It covers the costs of excavating, loading, hauling, drilling and auxiliary equipment as well as the costs of supply, personnel, stripping and other requirements. 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).

Metals, Ore Deposits and Minerals is the first in a series 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 Mineral Beneficiation Metals, Ore Deposits and Minerals covers an introduction to metallurgy, properties of metals and their structures in the context of the Periodic Table, commercial classification of metals and their uses, metal production and recycling, mineral occurrences and prospecting/mining of ores, properties of mineral and ores, and sources of minerals.
