Early Bird Deadline Approaching: Open Pit Slope Design

This June we’ll be holding our Open Pit Slope Design short course, presented by Felipe Capdeville-Perez, Matthew King. The course begins with the fundamentals of slope design and then progresses from field data collection and QA/QC techniques through to the development of the individual component models that are used to define the geotechnical model…

One Week Left to Register: Engineering-Based Cost Estimating for Underground Mines

There’s still time to register for Scott Stebbins’ upcoming short course, Engineering-Based Cost Estimating for Underground Mines. The design of underground mines is often complicated by the uncertainty associated with not-yet-fully-delineated engineering parameters, and this course will equip engineers and evaluators with the skills needed to produce detailed, economically advantageous, engineering-based cost estimates for underground mines. This 2-day course will be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, on November 20 and 21. For more information or to register, see the course page. Immediately prior to the

One Week Left to Register: Estimating Mining Costs for Prefeasibility Analyses

Regardless of the mining method used at your mine, it is likely that you will be asked to either do a cost estimate or to evaluate or utilize the results of an estimate at some point in time. Otto Schumacher and Scott Stebbins’ upcoming course, Estimating Mining Costs for Prefeasibility Analyses, addresses multiple systems for estimating mining costs and prepares participants to do a credible estimate, with an emphasis on prefeasibility level cost estimating for surface mines. This 2-day course will be held in Vancouver,

One Week Left to Register: Advanced Flotation Techniques

We’re excited for our first Canadian run of Dr. Marek Pawlik’s short course, Advanced Flotation Techniques, which made its debut last May, in Lima. The course material is useful for plant managers, operation managers, metallurgists, engineers, processing managers, as well as others. Dr. Pawlik will provide a review of the current state of the fundamentals and technology of froth flotation and then delve into the science (surface chemistry) of flotation, flotation technology, and flotation practice. This 2-day course will be held in Vancouver, BC, November
