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.

This course is for anyone who needs to interface with the mining industry: suppliers of equipment and services, government and regulators, administrative and support staff. In short, anyone who needs answers to questions like the following. Do you know who Robert Friedland is? Or Ivan Glasenberg? Do you know what Escondida is? Or where it is? Or Oyu Tolgoi? Or Grasberg? What is NI43-101? … The Equator Principles? … Copiapo? … Bre-X? … PDAC? What percentage of GDP in Australia is accounted for by mining and mineral processing? If you complete this course, you will. You won't learn everything about the technical aspects of mining, but you will learn what is current, topical and important in today's mining scene. In short, you will get a comprehensive overview of the mining industry. And you will get links to sources of information where you can find everything else. We hope that you will find the course so useful that it becomes your gateway for information on any mining topic. The 2022 version of the course has been extensively updated and improved: charts and figures have been brought up to date and improved; many images have been replaced and some have been added; all online links have been verified and/or updated as necessary; mining people, companies and salaries have been brought up to date; and a new commodities section has been added for Lithium.
