Edumine Webinar: Structural Geology in Geotechnical Mining Risk Management

Edumine is pleased to introduce this short webinar on structural geology presented by Dr. Wayne Barnett of SRK in Vancouver. Course Summary: The objectives of this course are to show you why structural geology is so important in mining operations and to illustrate how to define the structural geology for mining studies. Structural geology-related problems can commonly be managed or engineered at a cost, particularly if identified early enough. However they can cause operating costs or risks to escalate beyond tolerance and cause premature project

Updated Online Course – Geotechnical Data Collection for Excavation in Rock

We’ve just launched an exciting update from EduMine Author James Mathis. Geotechnical Data 1 – Rock Fabric and Structures, and its companion course Geotechnical Data 2 – Rock Material Properties, replace and expand upon the original course Geotechnical Data Collection for Excavation in Rock by the same author. Geotechnical Data 1 – Rock Fabric and Structures provides practical guidelines and procedures for collection of relevant geotechnical data by stereonets, cell mapping, core logging, and reduction of data for rock mass classification purposes. Geotechnical Data 2

Seats Still Available for Stereographic Projections

There’s still time to register for Grazyna Chrobok’s upcoming webcast, Stereographic Projections. This course will present the principles and applications of stereographic projection techniques commonly used in rock engineering to analyze geotechnical data and to determine the likelihood of rock mass failure induced by geological structures. Participants will learn about the methodologies of plotting, processing, and interpreting geotechnical data for the purpose of stability analysis of rock slopes and underground excavations. The webcast will take place 24 – 25 April 2013, from 4:00 pm to

Stereographic Projections Webcast: Early Bird Deadline January 11

Grazyna Chrobok’s upcoming live webcast Stereographic Projections will explore the principles of projecting the orientation of 3D geological structures onto a 2D grid or stereonet and the distribution of structural populations. The methodology of plotting, processing, and interpreting geotechnical data for the purpose of stability analysis of rock slopes and underground excavations will be introduced in the context of various rock mass failure modes. The course is recommended as a prerequisite or refresher course for individuals interested in taking advanced courses in rock engineering, mine
