This June, in Toronto, we will be holding Lawrence Devon Smith’s popular short course, Mineral Property Valuation. This financial course will examine the various approaches and methods of developing valuations for mineral properties and projects as well as mining companies. The three valuation approaches (Cost, Market, Income) will be discussed, along with the various methods within each approach and techniques for risk assessment. This course is part of our annual Toronto series of short courses, which focuses on mining, valuation and finance.
This 1-day course will take place on 3 June 2013, in Toronto, ON, Canada. For more details or to register, see the course page.
A 10% discount is also offered if you register for both Mineral Property Valuation and Valuation of Mineral Projects based on Technical and Financial Modelling.
This July, Dr. Scott Dunbar will once again deliver his popular introduction to mining and mineral processing webcast, Mining 101. The course is designed for people who are new to the mining industry and for those who seek a broad understanding of mining processes: how mines are found and built, how the ore is extracted and processed, how the waste is disposed, how mineral products are marketed, and where mining is headed. This is EduMine’s most popular webcast, and has been taken by everyone from administrative staff and accountants through to geologists, directors, and CFOs.
The three-day webcast will be held July 23 – 25, 2013, from 8:00 am to 11:00 am Pacific Daylight Time each day. For more information or to register, see the course page.
EduMine is pleased to present the upcoming webcast Advanced Tailings and Mine Waste Facility Design, Construction, Operation, and Closure. Presenters Jack Caldwell and Ian Hutchison, along with guest presenters Bernard Brixel, Lawrence Charlebois, and Robert Cooke, will explore mine surface water; mine groundwater; geotechnical principles in mine water balances; and the management and closure of mine tailings, waste rock, and heap leach facilities. The course covers the theoretical and practical aspects of mine waste management: from objectives and approaches to simple equations, principles and practice, and case histories. This webcast is intended to augment the knowledge of those responsible for the hands-on design, construction, operation, and closure of tailings facilities, and similar mine waste structures such as waste rock dumps and spent heap leach pads.
This three-session webcast will be held 25 – 27 June 2013, and you can attend from anywhere. Register before May 24 to receive a 10% Early Bird discount! For more details or to register, see the course page.
Dr. Alastair Sinclair’s upcoming short course, Mineral Resource Estimation, will focus on the detailed methodology of various resource/reserve estimation methods that are in common use in the Mining Industry, with emphasis on general procedures, inherent assumptions, and the advantages and limitations of each of the principal methods. The course is aimed at geologists, mining engineers, surveyors, geostatisticians, and other professionals dealing with the estimation of resources/reserves in a mining context.
This two-day course will take place 17 – 18 June in Vancouver, BC. For more info or to register, see the course page. Register before May 16th to receive a 10% Early Bird discount!
We’re gearing up for an exciting set of short courses in Toronto this June! Both courses qualify as Professional Development Hours and credit towards a Certificate in Mining Studies from the University of British Columbia or the University of Arizona. Participants save 10% if they register for both courses! Here’s the schedule:
June 3 (1 day) Mineral Property Valuation – Larry Smith of Barrick Gold examines the various approaches and methods of developing valuations for mineral properties and projects as well as mining companies.
June 4-7 (4 days) Valuation of Mineral Projects based on Technical and Financial Modelling – Prof. Dennis Buchanan of Imperial College delivers a lecture that aims to enhance an understanding of the financial side of mining, featuring workshop sessions using the IC-MinEval and IC-CoalEval software provided by IC-FinEval: Excel™-based spreadsheet programmes automating all stages required to produce models for a wide range of mineral projects.

There’s still time to register for Michael Curry’s upcoming Mobile Fleet Risk Management webcast. The material in this course is designed for anyone who wishes to understand fleet-specific liability issues, whether they’re involved in mine risk assessments or mobile fleet planning and selection. This course deals with the fundamentals of identifying, quantifying, and mitigating risks inherent to operating large mining vehicles in open pits, with particular emphasis on leveraging on-board vehicle systems and utilizing a reliable risk index to inform decision making.
This 3-session webcast will be held May 29 – 30, 2013, and you can attend from anywhere! For more details or to register, see the course page.
Tomorrow is the Early Bird deadline for our series of six professional development in mining courses in Lima, Peru! The courses will be organized into two parallel streams, and will be presented in English with simultaneous Spanish interpretation.
This series of courses is being presented between May 27 and June 1, 2013, in collaboration with PUCP and made possible by the support of Compañía Minera Antamina S.A. For more details or to register, click on a course title above, or view the series brochure in English or in Spanish.
There are still seats available for Dr. Doug Milne’s popular short course Rock Mass Characterization for Mine Design. Dr. Milne’s course will prepare mine staff to effectively gather geotechnical data, either from rock cuts, drifts, or core, and process the information for rock mass classification and rock mechanics design calculations. The course will explore effective mapping techniques to obtain data that can be used as input for any of the established rock classification systems. Attendees will participate in hands-on half-day underground mapping and rock classification tour at Britannia Mine, and a half-day surface mapping and rock classification field trip on the outskirts of Vancouver.
The 3-day course will take place 15 – 17 May 2013, in Vancouver, BC. For more details or to register, see the course page!
There’s still time to register for Srikant Annavarapu’s upcoming webcast, Geotechnical Inputs to Block Cave Mining! Geotechnical inputs are critical in all phases of block caving: design, planning and scheduling, and operations. This course will present the importance of geotechnical data during all stages of a block caving operation. It is designed for engineers involved in the design and operation of block cave mines, to aid in the safe and productive operation of their mines.
The three-day webcast will be held May 14 – 16, 2013, and you can attend from anywhere! For more info or to register, see the course page.
