Join the many faces of mining at NWMA 2013

SRK is a proud sponsor of the NWMA and is presenting two short courses at the 2013 conference.

TWO SHORT COURSESSRK presents two short courses at NWMA 2013: Applied Structural and Alteration Geology Workshop and Using the Standardized Reclamation Cost Estimator (SRCE) Effectively.

Applied Structural and Alteration Geology Workshop
Monday, December 2 - Tuesday, December 3,  8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Cost: $450

Presenters:

Blair Hrabi, MSc,PGeo, Principal Consultant, SRK Canada
Anna Fonseca, MSc,PGeo, Principal Consultant, SRK Canada

Description:

SRK’s two-day Applied Structural and Alteration Geology Workshop is designed to equip participants with the tools and confidence to apply structural and alteration geology effectively and add value to your projects, from grass-roots exploration to deposit-scale resource models. The workshop will be tailored to incorporate several themes and exercises based on the structural setting and alteration assemblages of ore deposits. The workshop includes a combination of presentations, case studies, and exercises, including the following modules:
 

CM1: General concepts of structural and alteration geology and application to mineral systems
CM2: Structural and alteration mapping techniques
CM3: Analysis of faults and fault systems
CM4: Analysis of folds and fold systems
CM5: Analysis of veins, vein systems and breccias
CM6: Infrared spectroscopy applied to alteration mineral identification
CM7: Analysis of structure and alteration in drill core
CM8: Alteration and structure in porphyry and epithermal environments
CM9: Structural and alteration analysis of remote sensing data


Using the Standardized Reclamation Cost Estimator (SRCE) Effectively
Monday, December 2 - Tuesday, December 3, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Cost: $450

Presenter:

Jeff Parshley, Corporate Consultant, SRK US

Description:

The Standardized Reclamation Cost Estimator (SRCE) is a public domain Microsoft Excel-based tool that can be used to calculate mine closure costs. The SRCE uses straightforward user input to create a first-principles estimate of closure costs. A state-specific version is currently used in Nevada by most of the mines and another version is available for use in other states and internationally.

This two-day short course is designed to introduce the SRCE and provide hands-on training to persons interested in using the tool. Instructors will use a combination of teaching tools including, hands-on examples, to familiarize attendees with the components of the model, and provide short-cuts and tips to help them make effective use of the tool. Advanced topics will include how to create custom calculations within the SRCE and integrate the results from other closure cost estimating tools into the SRCE to create an all-inclusive closure cost estimate.

Attendees will need to bring a laptop computer and engineering scale for the hands-on exercises.
