Applied structural geology of gold and base metal bearing hydrothermal mineralizing systems (Two days) - SOLD OUT

See Details
This short course will provide a series of lectures which will address the structural styles and controls on Au and selected base metal deposit types, as well as methodologies
for their assessment in exploration and mining environments. Presentations will review the structural characteristics of orogenic gold deposits, epithermal deposits, and VMS deposits, and examine how the location and morphology of orebodies are controlled by fluid pressure regimes, deformation process, stress states, structural settings, and the effects of post-ore deformation. In addition, field relationships and workflows for data acquisition and interpretation at core-, deposit- and district-scale will be reviewed, illustrating the variety of structural features that may be used to constrain deposit-scale geological models. On completion of this course, participants will have received a grounding in the principles of structural control on mineralization and examples of good practice in data acquisition and analysis. Although Au and VMS deposit types will be specifically discussed, the information presented here also may be of benefit to workers in other structurally-controlled, or modified mineral deposits.

Concepts and application of machine learning to mining geoscience: A practical course (Two days) - SOLD OUT

See Details
Over the last five years machine learning (ML) has been a growing subject of conversation in the mining industry. From targeting of mineral deposits to connected mining environment, there is no doubt that artificial intelligence will play a key role in our industry in the near future. However, the subject can seem obscure and is often hard to grasp, which creates apprehensions from geoscientists.

This workshop will introduce the participants to the applications and evaluation of machine learning in mining geoscience. The main concepts and best practices for applied machine learning to exploration and mining will be reviewed. The course will be set in a practical framework, with a focus on the understanding and usage of different algorithms without detailing the mathematics behind each algorithm. Through a series of case studies, examples and hands-on exercises the attendees will learn how to best apply machine learning to different datasets and most importantly, evaluate the results produced by the algorithms.

Geophysical and geochemical imaging of the continental upper mantle for mineral systems regional targeting

See Details
Integration of geological, geophysical and geochemical information across a range of scales has been a massive enabler over the last 20 years contributing to a more holistic
understanding of mineral systems and their attendant ore deposits. In terms of continental evolution, we now recognize the critical role of the interaction between the
global geodynamic system (including plate tectonics) and the Sub-Continental Lithospheric Mantle (SCLM). Partitioning of deformation, and the development of trans-lithospheric structures, provide a focus for heat, magma and volatile transfer from the convecting mantle to the upper crustal environment. These processes leave geophysical and geochemical signatures in the SCLM that can be imaged using surface techniques, and all world-class deposits, and many other deposits are known to have anomalous mantle beneath them. Thus, broad scale geophysical and geochemical methods can be used for regional scale targetting of prospective areas, especially in regions of thick cover. Understanding the role of prior “fertilizing” processes coupled with an ability to recognize key geodynamic triggers, means that mineral systems concepts can be systematically applied to maps of lithospheric architecture to generate opportunities for a breakthrough capability in mineral deposit discovery.

This course will be presented by six of the top experts in their fields of geophysics, geochemistry and tectonics.

Health and safety in mineral exploration SOLD OUT

See Details
The field-oriented health and safety (H&S) course has now run successfully for seven years and has constantly adjusted to participant comments to address key concerns of people running exploration field programs. These adjustments to the course material will continue as ideas in H&S evolve over time.

The objective of the course is to give participants sufficient training that they can understand the typical risks are in mineral exploration: how to run a simple risk assessment, an introduction to accident root cause analysis, the gathering and use of H&S statistics, and some emphasis on the special higher risks associated with drilling (accidents) and helicopters (fatalities). The participants will have enough information to start an H&S program, and given one existing at their company they will understand better what a H&S program is attempting to achieve. Speakers include seasoned experts in H&S from exploration, management, drill company and aviation (helicopters).

Disclosure dos and don’ts: Avoiding the fatal flaws in your public reporting

See Details
Although NI 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects has been in place for over 17 years, regulatory staff at the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) and Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) continue to observe common public reporting problems that trip up exploration and mining companies.

This course, presented by technical staff from the OSC and the TSX, will pull back the curtain and discuss how disclosure reviews are conducted by securities commissions, exchanges, and IIROC. Presenters will cover both good and bad examples of public reporting by companies at various stages in the development of a mineral project from exploration to production.

The course is designed to provide qualified persons, management, and investor relations personnel with tips and advice on how to avoid the disclosure snags that may require the company to retract or issue a clarifying news release and potentially amend and refile documents.

Presenters will cover disclosure challenges with required public filings posted on SEDAR, such as material news releases, as well as voluntary reporting, such as company websites and corporate presentations. Technical report disclosure issues will focus on common problems that may cause the technical report to be amended and re-filed. New SEC rules for mining disclosure adopted in late 2018 will also be covered.

The popular question and answer session will also be hosted at the end of the course.

Recognizing the impact of political risk on mining operations, corporate strategy and investment decision-making (0.5 days)

See Details
Mining companies often make substantial investments in foreign countries as part of the process of finding, developing and operating mining projects. In addition to financial and
technical mining uncertainties, these investments are exposed to political risk or the possibility that an investment’s performance is adversely affected by the unexpected actions of the host country and other actors such as the local community or transnational organizations. Recent examples of political risk events include mining royalty and tax changes, punitive environmental or tax penalties, restrictive downstream processing or concentrate export requirements, and local community protests. Traditionally, mining companies have recognized political risk by attaching an additional risk premium on the discount rate they use to assess an investment. However, forward-thinking mining companies have begun to manage political risk through a formal program that:

1) Explicitly recognizes political risk as a cash flow effect when assessing possible investments,
2) Actively monitors and responds to political risk events affecting operating mines and development projects, and
3) Assesses the combined effect of multiple political risk exposures on a company’s project portfolio and long-term corporate strategy.

This course provides an overview of political risk in the mining industry and the strategies that companies can use to manage this exposure. We discuss how political risk can be measured, describe a framework that a company can use to assess prospective investments, manage existing investment exposure, and aggregate political risk at a corporate level. The course will also introduce a quantitative model to explicitly recognize the investment impact of political risk and a case study involving a fictitious company developing and operating a number of mines globally.

Building the mine we want to see

See Details
Mining walks a fine line when navigating evolving stakeholder and shareholder expectations. With rising globalization, the demand for mining products and scrutiny over how they are extracted and used continues to grow.

This new reality directly impacts the way we do business. We are affected by changes driven through technological innovation, investor activism, community and consumer demands and government policy.

Drivers including population growth and urbanization, disruptors such as metals substitutes and the circular economy, are elevating sustainable mining. These changes demand a new narrative to communicate the critical role mining plays in securing sustainable global growth.

We will talk about five pillars integral to the future of mining. Panelists will share their perspectives on what it will take for mining to remain a leader in the sustainability space. Attendees can raise their own questions and help to define, “The mine we want to see.”
