Improve your knowledge and appreciation of the technicalities, risks and challenges involved with underground mining _ the complex geology, how to choose the optimal mining method, the importance of production efficiency and equipment selection, JORC and the risk/return scenarios.
Key Learning Outcomes:
Explain underground mine geology and ore-body modelling. Appreciate the importance of resource/reserve estimation and statutory requirements: JORC Understand the components of mine planning and the bankable feasibility study. Analyse underground mining methods and their financial risks. Recognise the interplay between size and life of mine. Appreciate the safety, legal, environmental and mine closure considerations. Consider the current industry challenges. Critically analyse select case studies of underground projects.
About the Course: Build your knowledge and appreciation of the factors influencing the choice of a safe, productive and profitable underground mining method. This course will provide a relatively new entrant into the mining industry or an experienced person in one part of the industry; with a clear understanding of the fundamentals, workings and technical components of underground mining. Participants will learn about the technical aspects of mining ranging from exploration methods, geology, resource estimation and underground mining to mine planning, mining methods and mine closures. This course aims to provide detailed knowledge of underground mining systems and the skills to determine what mining method would suit a given ore body, considering a variety of parameters including the financial risks. Participants will develop knowledge in the development, production and all other processes involved in underground mining systems through a step by step examining of underground mining techniques. They will appreciate the interplay between size and life of mine and how difficult it is to make decisions under uncertainty.
