Course Description

Explore the many facets of mining engineering from exploration to productionand mine closure.

This course will provide an overview of the different phases involved in themining process. From exploration, impact assessment, production and processingof ore, up to mine closure. Environmental and economic aspects will also beconsidered because they constitute important parts of the process as a whole.Emphasis will be placed on the key concerns of the mining engineer, thescience behind rock behaviour as well as surface and underground miningoperations. By the conclusion of this course, you will have a generalunderstanding of the overall mining process.

What will I learn? 

  • The steps in the mining process from mineral exploration to closure
  • Fundamentals of Rock Mechanics. That is, stress-strain, rock strength, effect of discontinuities, rock testing, stress in the ground and instabilities
  •  Fundamentals of surface and underground mini...
