This course is for those who seek to understand why block caving is becoming the mining method of choice for large, disseminated copper deposits at greater depths. This is partly because we are running out of such deposits nearer the surface; partly because it offers economies of scale unachievable with other methods; and also partly because it presents opportunities to maximize metal recovery. The method has been in use for many years and, though conceptually simple, is perhaps the most technically challenging of all underground methods. The amount of metal recovered is a function of a complex set of inter-relationships between geology, rock properties, stress, cave propagation, fragmentation, layouts, draw strategy, draw compliance and time. Modern caving operations are scheduled to produce at substantially higher tonnage rates from deeper ore bodies located in more competent ground than has been the case in the past. These are large, capital intensive operations that must be justified by a good understanding of the relationship between the major value drivers: orebody knowledge, design, schedule, and performance. This understanding must in turn be based on quality measurements of orebody data such as geology, grade, rock properties and stress, and key performance data such as cave back propagation, fragmentation size, material movement in the draw column, draw control and drawpoint availability. This course introduces the student to the concepts and principles of block caving.

In recent years there has been a strong international move toward knowing and improving the quality of information used in the mining industry for mineral project exploration reporting and resource/reserve estimation. In Canada this trend has been accentuated because of recent, highly publicized scams that involved contamination of samples. An important aim of quality control procedures is to minimize the likelihood of such scams so that the public is not misled as to the economic potential of a mineral deposit. Quality control procedures also serve the technical purposes of identifying sources of and quantifying both random errors and unintentional bias in sampling, subsampling and analytical routines and thus provide the basis for improved procedures of data collection that translate into improved resource/reserve estimates. One of the important reactions in Canada to recent mining scams has been the implementation of what is known as National Instrument 43-101 (NI43-101) in which a wide range of requirements, relating to mineral project reporting and resource/reserve estimation, are laid out. These requirements identify a Qualified Person (QP) who is responsible for all technical matters related to obtaining and publicizing both assay data and resource/reserve figures. This course incorporates a variety of procedures designed to fulfill the requirements of NI43-101 insofar as standard, blank and duplicate samples can be used to define and monitor quality of geochemical and assay values that are the basis of deposit evaluation. The International Standards Organization (ISO) has developed a variety of widely distributed publications dealing with quality control systems for a wide range of industrial settings. The application of the ISO standards to resource/reserve estimation procedures necessarily involves all steps of the published procedures. Too often quality control is thought of only in terms of quantitative measurements. A broader perspective is essential and must include the categorical and qualitative data that are inherent in geological studies. 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).

Introducción Los botaderos de roca estéril y desmonte son estructuras enormes. El minado de carbón con voladura de montañas en British Columbia está creando las más grandes estructuras hechas por el hombre sobre la faz de la tierra. Estos inmensos botaderos miden hasta 400 metros de alto, contienen más de mil millones de metros cúbicos de material y, por lo general, forman pilas de desmonte en medio del valle o drenajes de roca. La inestabilidad de las estructuras ha generado gran preocupación entre los operadores de las minas y los entes reguladores del gobierno debido al riesgo contra la seguridad del personal, equipo e infraestructura, así como su impacto ambiental. A mediados de 1990, los representantes de la industria, Canada Centre for Minerals and Energy Technology - CANMET (Centro Canadiense de Tecnología para Energía y Minerales), el Ministerio del Medio Ambiente y el Ministerio de Energía, Minas y Recursos Petroleros conformaron un Comité de Investigación de Botaderos para promover el trabajo de investigación y garantizar el entendimiento común de estos botaderos. El curso "Diseño y Operación de Grandes Botaderos" se basa en tres documentos que se generan a partir de una serie de estudios dirigidos a mejorar el entendimiento del comportamiento y desarrollar una base de datos consistente para botaderos ... Manual de Investigación y Diseño (1991), Manual de Operaciones y Monitoreo (1991) y Revisión y Evaluación de Fallas (1992). Los consultores geotécnicos y los representantes de la industria más prominentes contribuyeron con su experiencia para llevar a cabo estos estudios. Los estudios están siendo ampliamente distribuidos por el Ministerio de Energía, Minas y Recursos Petroleros con la esperanza de que sea útil en todo lo relacionado a botaderos mineros para que sean estables, seguros y económicamente factibles. Un completo curso y referencia técnica para operadores de mina y consultores en las áreas de investigación, planeación, diseño, operación y monitoreo de botaderos de mina. Incluye la revisión y análisis de los tipos de fallas de mina. Authors Tim Eaton MSc P.Eng (Editor) Scott Broughton (Co-Autor) Klohn Crippen Berger (Co-Autor) Piteau Associates Engineering Ltd.

This course is about heap leaching: the design of heap leach pads; the mechanics of preparing the mined ore for placement on a pad; the construction processes involved in placing materials on pads for leaching; the operation of heap leach pads, including the application of fluids that liberate the metals in the ore; the physics and chemistry of the seepage of fluids through the ore; and the ultimate closure of the heap leach pad when mining ends. Objectives By the end of the course you should know enough to plan, establish, operate, and close a heap leach pad. And if you choose not to do all this alone, you will have sufficient information and knowledge to retain and manage specialists, consultants and contractors, hence to undertake the activities attendant on successful heap leaching.
