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.

Conflict is an inevitable part of the human experience. Since we all have different experiences, beliefs, expectations, goals, cultures, and values, it is impossible for us to agree on everything. These disagreements will predictably lead to conflict. It is also a very human characteristic to believe that what we know and believe is the truth, and that those who see things differently must be wrong. The result? Conflict. As a leader, your challenge is not to prevent conflict, but to make sure differences between or among employees, between yourself and employees, or between employees and your company do not become dysfunctional. Conflict in itself is not a bad thing—it is often a catalyst for change. If you take the time to understand the causes of conflicts in your workplace, and help your employees negotiate peaceful resolutions or compromises, you can use this energy in a positive way. This course will show you where conflicts often arise, why they happen, and offer suggestions on how you, the leader, can deal with them constructively. Leadership Development Series Background The Leadership Development series was developed for Edumine by Dr. Elaine Cullen, President of Prima Consulting Services, and by Trudy Gallinger, Director of Curriculum Development for Prima Consulting Services. We draw upon a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from those who are thought leaders, practitioners, and professors in the art of leadership. We provide references for the many wise teachers and guides we used to create this series, and hope you will take the time to learn from them as well. How we have put the series together, however, and the unique ways we have presented the material as it relates to the mining industry, is ours alone. While each course in the series is designed to stand alone, it is highly recommended that you complete the Leadership Development - Introduction to Leadership course. This will ensure that we have a common understanding of what leadership entails, and common language to use in working through the entire course series. Authors Elaine T.

Este curso está dirigido a cualquier persona interesada en las relaciones comunitarias sustentables en la minería: profesionales, gerentes, encargados de regulaciones, ONG, líderes de la comunidad y estudiantes graduados. En este curso se explica cómo una compañía minera puebe obtener y mantener una licencia social para operar.Se presenta un caso de negocio para recursos dedicados a la licencia social y se describe el retorno que espera una compañía de cada nivel de licencia. El curso también explora lo que se puede hacer para que el otorgande de una licencia sea políticamente más estable, con el fin de reducir el riesgo sociopolítico y mejorar la disposición de la comunidad para un desarrollo sustentable. El curso muestra de qué manera se superponen estas actividades y las áreas de responsabilidad social corporativa, ciudadanía corporativa e informes sustentables. En este curso se explica qué es una licencia social, por qué es importante para las compañías mineras y cómo la teoría de gerencia general conocida como la "visión de dependencia del recurso de la ventaja competitiva" explica de qué manera las relaciones con las partes interesadas afectan la factibilidad y el éxito de un proyecto. También se describen los cuatro niveles de licencia social y los tres criterios de límites que se deben cumplir para pasar de un nivel a otro; se examinan factores comunes que pueden provocar que el nivel de licencia social suba o baje. Además se indagan los conceptos de análisis de licencia social para explorar las diferentes formas en que una comunidad podría ser incapaz de emitir una licencia social que sea durable y legítima socialmente y ve más allá de las políticas de las partes interesadas en los patrones de capital social que pueden mejorar la capacidad de una comunidad para emitir una licencia social sólida, al tiempo que eleva el nivel de la licencia social que entrega al comunidad a la compañía. También se integra la obtención y la mantención de una licencia social con tareas relacionadas en los campos de responsabilidad social corporativa, informes sustentables y mejoras de reputación corporativa.

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.

The work of today has changed significantly from what it was. Organizations have become more complex. Globalization and technology have created both opportunities and new challenges for the employment relationship and how employers and employees relate with one another. This holds true for the mining industry that must also deal with challenges such as volatile commodity markets. While all these challenges can be daunting, the fundamental issues of staffing, orientation, compensation, performance management, etc. remain vital and ongoing factors for organizations to address. In this course, we look at the best practices of sourcing, selecting, and securing employees. This course will be of interest to managers and supervisors who work with recruiters to build their teams. This course will also benefit prospective employees to gain a better understanding of this process. Taking a strategic approach, this course not only focuses on the immediate need to fill a vacancy. It looks at this as the first step in the longer term approach to engage and retain talent. This is achieved by linking the specific HR functions to the achievement of the organization's goals and strategic objectives. Sourcing the right candidates for vacancies used to be a relatively easy process of placing an ad in the newspaper and waiting for the resumes to come in. Both employers and applicants knew where to connect. Today, it can be time consuming and much more difficult as there are a myriad of methods and places for employers to advertise and for employees to look. In this course we outline an approach of planning out the sourcing process to inform potential candidates of the opportunity to generate a sufficiently populated applicant pool of qualified candidates. Once there are sufficient qualified applicants, making a good selection decision is vital. A poor selection decision can have a significant, negative impact on achievement of business goals. Developing a strong understanding of the requirements of the role and using these to screen and then develop interview questions and strategies to inform the selection decision is vital to a successful search. Engagement and retention are increasingly becoming an important goal for organizations. As one of the first steps associated with this, the orientation process starts the employee on the path of becoming a committed and productive employee. Compensation is another area that contributes to engagement and retention. Understanding how compensation is related to the role and that it is fairly established addresses an underlying fundamental issue for employees.

Este curso introductorio sobre cianuro proporciona una introducción no técnica para el uso y manejo global del cianuro, incluyendo la producción de oro, química del cianuro, análisis, toxicidad, tratamiento, riesgos y manejo. Este curso está diseñado para proporcionar una amplia perspectiva del uso del cianuro y cómo se compara con otros químicos que se usan en el mundo. El cianuro fue utilizado por primera vez para la minería del oro en Nueva Zelandia y Sudáfrica hace más de un siglo. La cianuración sigue siendo uno de los métodos más eficientes para la lixiviación de oro y plata de las menas. El ácido cianhídrico (HCN) fue descubierto por el químico Sueco Carl Scheele en 1782. En gran parte, el temor y mal entendimiento que rodea al cianuro está relacionado con su uso en ejecuciones, como reactivo en guerra química y en incidentes como el de la cápsula de Tylenol y el suicidio en masa de Guyana hace muchos años. Existe mucha confusión y mala información en cuanto al impacto real del uso de cianuro en la industria minera de oro. Este curso introductorio intenta disipar los mitos y misterios que rodean al cianuro y proporcionar datos y cifras confiables. Cursos posteriores sobre el cianuro detallan aspectos técnicos específicos que se destacan en este curso introductorio. Este curso comienza con un examen de la producción, el uso y transporte del cianuro por el mundo, seguido por una discusión de sus propiedades técnicas, riesgos y manejo.
