Objectives This course presents the principles and application of stereographic projections, illustrated by numerous interactive figures. The course is divided into three parts. Part 1 - Geological Structures introduces the concept of orientation of geological structures. Part 2 - Stereographic Projections demonstrates the principles of projecting the relative orientation of geological features onto a stereonet. Part 3 - Types of Failure shows the methodology of plotting, processing and interpretation of structural geology data for the purpose of stability analysis of rock slopes and underground excavations.

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.

Traducción al español La traducción de este curso al español ha sido auspiciada por Goldcorp Central America.  Introducción En este curso se discuten los principios y prácticas del manejo de aguas superficiales en minas. Se describen las mejores prácticas del manejo de aguas superficiales en minas para poder cumplir con los siguientes objetivos: Objetivos Todas las minas alteran la superficie. Todas las minas cambian las características del sitio que afectan los escurrimientos pluviales, la evaporación, el caudal de los arroyos y la erosión. Todas las minas requieren la nivelación del terreno, la desviación de escurrimientos y la colocación de desechos que aumentan o disminuyen la infiltración de las aguas superficiales a las aguas subterráneas. Es inevitable en las minas la necesidad de capturar y controlar sedimentos y otros contaminantes en las aguas superficiales, así como la construcción y operación de obras necesarias para cumplir con los reglamentos relacionados al impacto fuera del sitio de las aguas superficiales que salen de las minas.Por lo tanto, este curso está dirigido a todas las personas dentro de la minería o asociadas a ella que puedan estar involucradas o tener responsabilidad por las obras de ingeniería hidrológica, hidráulica, ambiental, civil o minera necesarias para el manejo de aguas superficiales en minas.   Author Jack Caldwell P.E., MS.(Eng.), LLB   Duration 12 Hours Access 90 Days Category Geotechnics Level Specialize Version Date June 26, 2012 Need to train a team?

Most mines produce tailings: the ultimate waste product that results from mining the ore body, processing the ore, and recovering the valuable metals and minerals. The tailings are the waste product that results from mining, crushing, grinding, and chemically treating the ore. This course covers tailings as part of the mining process, tailings types and characteristics, tailings facility types and components, and tailings facility design, performance, construction, operation and closure... illustrated by case histories. This course is for anyone involved in the different aspects of tailings listed above, including engineers, environmentalists, geologists, operators and regulators.

Summary The catastrophic failure of the Brumadinho dam in January 2019 which killed approximately 270 people has sparked a global conversation around tailings management, resulting in global tailing review to set a new international standard. This course will review the concepts of what responsible tailings management is as it pertains to the mining life cycle. The course will use examples from around the world to emphasize current trends in best practices in tailings management embraced by leaders in the industry.  Duration:     9 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Geotechnics Who This Course is For This course is for mining company representatives responsible for tailings management, tailings designers, regulators involved in tailings issues, and anyone interested in the subject. Presenter  Kimberly Morrison Kimberly Morrison is the Director, Tailings & Water Management at Newmont Corporation. Ms. Morrison has more than 23 years of experience on a variety of geotechnical, civil, environmental and construction projects, specializing in the geotechnical and environmental design of mine waste facilities for projects worldwide, including the US, Canada, Mexico, South America, Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe.  Need to Train a Team?

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
