Mine Planning – Strategy
February 28 @ 1:00 pm - March 2 @ 4:00 pm$510
This webcast introduces key mine planning concepts. The drive to exploit a mineral resource, such that it adds as much value as possible to the mining business, requires a continual update of the mine plan and the rapid implementation of any value adding opportunities as they arise. Planning a mining operation requires a unique approach that differs from other industries. On completion of the course, participants will be able to recognize and use key levers in mining such as mining method selection, process route selection, scale of operation, and sequence and scheduling to effectively unlock value from their mining operations.
This course requires participants to undertake numerous calculation based exercises to effectively demonstrate the impact of each of the key levers that will be addressed. All participants will be provided with template/pre-filled MS Excel spreadsheets to minimize time spent on data entry. Good use of Excel is therefore required.
