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 1 - Data Structures and Theory is the first course in the series. It introduces geostatistics, data types and structures, and covers the basic concepts and theory of geostatistics. It then discusses the integration of geology with geostatistics and explains this through worked examples. Authors Simon W. Houlding MSc.

Summary Large volumes of data is often generated and captured in mining. However, it is uncommon for the value that this data contains to be fully uncovered and utilised to improve processes. The report “How digital innovation can improve mining productivity” by McKinsey & Company (2015) found that less than 1% of operational data obtained by mining companies is appropriately used. This webinar will enable participants to apply theoretical knowledge of statistics to resolve applied mining problems.  Participants will gain an understanding of what data to collect, how to measure it, and with what frequency? The data cleansing, validation, exploration, visualisation and integration phases will also be presented. In doing so, participants will be exposed to excel spreadsheets in order to appropriately find patterns, gain insights and communicate results. A number of case studies will be presented which demonstrate how data driven decision making can be unitised to improve mining processes. This course requires participants to undertake numerous calculation based exercises to effectively demonstrate the impact of each of the key levers that will be addressed. All participants will be provided with template/pre-filled excel spreadsheets to minimize time spent on data entry. Good use of excel is therefore required. Duration:     5 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Mining Who This Course is For This course is designed for participants with mining industry exposure that are genuinely interested in using data to find patterns and gain insights into how these can potentially improve mining processes. It is also recommended for mining professionals who want to refresh their knowledge on data analytics. This may include but not limited to the following: Mine planners/schedulers: To make better assumptions relating to future productivity, machine and operator performance. Maintenance planners: Useful for understanding trends in machine failure and downtime data. Environmental personal: Making sense and correlating sample data, dust monitoring information, vibration data, and other environment monitoring data. Health and Safety representatives: Understanding trends in health and safety reporting of incidents and near-misses. Process plant operators/engineers: May assist in understanding process bottlenecks.

Summary Do you have the most up-to-date information in drilling and blasting to tackle common problems such as drill fleet optimization, explosive selection, and mine-to-mill optimization? Blasting has completely changed in the last five years, yet alone the last twenty to fifty years and there is relatively little information widely published. Today we understand shock breakage, velocity matching, and powder factor are outdated and should never be used in the blasting process. New methods have taken the place of these concepts that allow blasters and engineers to make significant improvements to the drilling and blasting process. This course will cover the new updates in the basics of drilling and blasting which you will use on a daily basis in your career of blast engineering. This course will cover critical topics such as an introduction to modern blasting, how rock actually breaks from explosives, the commercial explosives and initiation systems used today, and the drilling technology available in the industry. The course is divided into short video modules with questions following each lesson to reinforce key concepts. Duration:     3 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Mining Who This Course is For This course is ideal for anyone who is working in the drilling and blasting program at a mine or works around the process and would like to gain additional background on the subject. The course is designed to give new developments in the field to the seasoned professional while also teaching someone completely new to the topic about the basics. Presenter Dr. Anthony Konya - Dr. Anthony Konya holds a PhD in explosive engineering and is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AcademyBlasting.com. Anthony has consulted around the world on blasting including blast design, presplitting, ground vibration, air overpressure, and blasting safety. Anthony has written over 50 technical articles on drilling and blasting and has developed the modern presplit breakage theory utilized in the industry. Anthony has trained hundreds of industry professionals through online courses, in-class courses and seminars, as an instructor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, and through guest lectures at the worlds leading Mining Engineering Universities and at private company events.   Need to train a team?

Risk is seldom explicitly introduced in the decision making equation, despite the fact that risk is often invoked. Many companies and organizations in the world consider risk management as a separate discipline, a sort of auditing/compliance nuisance imposed on them by governance rules or fearful upper management, resulting in the feeling that risk management may not be adding value to their business. Very seldom is risk management seen as an investment to generate positive outcomes, not just to prevent bad ones.  This course introduces a new approach that explicitly takes risks and uncertainties, and the stochastic nature of costs, into account. The new approach presents the concepts of the Economic Safety Margin and Comparative Risk Based Decision Making, illustrated by case studies. The latter is an innovative technique for comparing alternatives and projects at the tactical level.  By registering for certification in this course you can download and submit a data input sheet for a project of your choice to the authors and receive a free email consultation from an expert.  For a video presentation of Dr. Oboni's lecture on Risk and Decision Making (requires Adobe Flash Player), click on: Keynote Lecture.  Authors Dr. Franco Oboni Ph.D., Civ.

This course is about the concepts, techniques, and tools for risk assessment and decision-making applicable to the management of mine geowaste facilities. The course focuses on managing the design, operation, and closure of mine waste facilities such as tailings facilities, waste rock dumps, and spent heap leach pads using risk assessment, formal decision-making methods, and management tools and procedures. The topics addressed are key to the success of mining projects and their impact on the environment, as closed mine waste disposal facilities are new terraforms that will be there in perpetuity. If they are designed, constructed, operated, and closed properly, the mine is justifiable; if not, the mine should not be allowed to open or operate. If the geowaste facility is part of a mine that generates corporate and social benefits and entails risks that are below tolerable thresholds, then the mine is sustainable and can be allowed to operate. If the risks are not manageable, the mine may not be opened. Authors Jack Caldwell   Duration 19 Hours Access 90 Days Category Geotechnics Level Specialize Version Date October 19, 2015   Read More
