Health and Safety in Exploration 4 is one of a series of courses developed from e3 Plus: A Framework for Responsible Exploration, a guideline developed by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) to help exploration companies continuously improve their social, environmental and health and safety performance and to comprehensively integrate these three aspects into all of their exploration programs around the world. e3 Plus provides the means for members to reduce social and environmental risk to their projects, to benefit local communities and to enable companies to become world leaders in corporate social responsibility performance (CSR). The intended audience for e3 Plus includes: the exploration sector, local communities, government organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society, academia or any interested party. The complete series of e3Plus courses includes the following titles: Principles and Guidance for Responsible Exploration Social Responsibility in Exploration Environmental Stewardship in Exploration 1 - 2 Health and Safety in Exploration 1 - 4 Students of these courses please note that the first course in the series, Principles and Guidance, must be studied before any of the other courses.

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.

Process mineralogy combines mineralogical techniques with mineral process unit operations to identify minerals, their associations and characteristics in order to... establish feasibility concepts at the early stages of geological exploration; design processing flowsheets; specify raw materials and marketable products; troubleshoot plants; indicate new uses of minerals. Process Mineralogy 1 for Metals presents the basic tools of process mineralogy and their application primarily with respect to metals, illustrated by numerous examples. Topics covered include the following. Importance of process mineralogy for mining, mineral processing and metallurgy; definition of raw materials; different sources of raw materials; techniques used in process mineralogy; important mineralogical aspects for mineral concentration and leaching. Analytical techniques used in process mineralogy to identify and quantify minerals and for chemical analysis; principles of optical microscopy; use of the polarizing microscope to identify minerals; transmitted and reflected light. Quantitative mineralogical analysis using optical microscopy; point counting; degree of liberation by the Gaudin method; image analysis. Mineralogical analysis by x-ray diffraction; principles of x-ray generation and diffraction; quantitative XRD methods; use of x-ray fluorescence for chemical analysis. Electron microscopy; scanned and transmitted beams; interaction of electrons with matter; x-ray maps; identification of minerals. Quantitative mineralogical analysis using mineral separation; heavy liquid separation; density gradient; study of mineral liberation using heavy liquids and flotation; study of gold liberation. Quantitative mineralogical analysis based on chemical composition of minerals; mass balance techniques. Application of process mineralogy to coal and industrial minerals is covered in a companion course titled Process Mineralogy 2 for Coal and Industrial Minerals.

Mobile Equipment Life Cycle Costing is a practical guide for managing the economic life of a mining truck fleet. It covers key financial, commercial and physical aspects of truck management and explains specific methods for acquiring and operating these vehicles to full advantage. The course includes three sections—Introduction, Life Cycle Cost Analysis, and Optimization. It is structured to support a vigorous discounted cash flow analysis that embraces realistic estimates for the key operating and maintenance variables associated with running haul trucks, and discusses options for improving overall truck performance and productivity. The objective is to provide an analytic framework that enables readers to impartially assess haul truck investments by using reliable financial modeling and sensitivity analysis. The life cycle model should be functional as a baseline for formal equipment planning and management and for measuring the performance of the haul truck fleet during its useful life. People who will benefit from this course include purchasing, maintenance, engineering and production managers from mining companies that operate fleets of large haul trucks.

The development of a resource extraction project instantly changes the environment and social context of the area. Even the smallest group of pre-exploration geologists walking through a community can set off gossip and speculation about potential future economic, political, environmental, social and cultural transformations in a community; construction and operations typically lead to significant long-term change. This is particularly true in remote areas with small, isolated communities, which are often the ones that interact most intimately with resource projects. A strategic social management system can help a company think about its relationship with communities, the extent of the risks posed to their construction or operations and can help a company to assess and manage the social issues, strategies and benefits that are important to the project stakeholders over time. This course provides an introduction to the key components of successful strategic social management. It draws heavily on more than 20 years of experience by the MFC team designing, implementing and assessing social management systems and social performance on some of the largest and some of the most complex (not always large) mining projects around the globe. The course outlines the four distinct social management areas and brings them together into an integrated, risk-based approach for managing social performance. Strategic social management requires holistic thinking, collaboration, clear communication, integrated analysis and reporting; however, meaningful results require a detailed understanding of each of the contributing parts.

This course provides a non-technical introduction to the basic concepts of mineral exploration, ore extraction, mineral processing, and mine waste management, with numerous examples, figures and images of mining. Also included are some key aspects of the economics of a mining and mineral processing operation. An Introduction to Mining and Mineral Processing is for anyone who finds themselves working in the mining industry and needs a broad understanding of the industry without the technical details. Examples include geologists, chemists, engineers (except perhaps mining engineers), administrative staff, investors, accountants and suppliers. 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).
