New Online Course – Groundwater Modelling for Mining 2 – Numerical Modelling

Back in August, we announced that the second course of our Groundwater Modelling for Mining series was expected soon. Last Friday the course was completed, and we launched Groundwater Modelling for Mining 2 – Numerical Modelling. This course can ready you to understand the process of selection of model parameters and construction, calibration, and verification of the model, as well as to understand model predictions and the evaluations of model uncertainty.

Upcoming Groundwater Modelling for Mining Short Course in Vancouver

There’s still time to register for Dr. Murray Fredlund’s upcoming short course Groundwater Modelling for Mining! This two-day course will explore groundwater modeling for mine sites: a process essential for dewatering and maintaining the slope stability of open pits, and regulating the environmental impact of mine operation. This course will give the learner an overview of the practical applications of probabilistic principles in the groundwater modeling of complex earth structures, and complimentary trial versions of the SVOffice – SVFlux groundwater software such that they can

Courses on Geotechnics, Rock Mechanics and Hydrology

Scheduled for Fall 2013 The engineering aspects of a mine are paramount for stability, safety, and economical extraction. If you cannot move, open, and control the earth, you will not have a mine. If you cannot predict, model, and manipulate the water, you will not have a mine. Stay up-to-date on the most recent developments in and methods for geological and hydrogeological engineering at mines. EduMine’s live courses offer the opportunity to learn directly from industry specialists. Live webcasts can be attended from anywhere with

Upcoming Short Course: Groundwater Modelling for Mining

In the context of mining, groundwater management is essential for dewatering and maintaining the slope stability of open pits, in addition to influencing the environmental impact of mine operation. Dr. Murray Fredlund’s upcoming short course Groundwater Modelling for Mining explores groundwater modeling as pertains to problems typically encountered at mine sites. This course intends to provide the user with an overview of the practical applications of probabilistic principles in the groundwater modeling of complex earth structures. Attendees will be provided with complimentary trial versions of

New Online Course: Groundwater Modelling for Mining 1 – Model Conceptualization

The environmental impacts of a mining project need to be quantified before undertaking a project, and throughout the mining lifecycle to ensure regulatory compliance, project sustainability, and environmental protection. With this in mind, Christoph Wels, Dan Mackie, Jacek Scibek, Lawrence Charlebois, and Paul Ferguson have authored a series of 3 informative online courses for EduMine based on the British Columbia Groundwater Modelling Guidelines, modified and condensed to illustrate internationally applicable best practice. We’ve just launched the first course in the series, Groundwater Modelling for Mining
