From Drilling to Mining – for Field and Mine Technicians

Presenters: Susan Havlin – Principal Consultant; Ian Glacken – Executive Consultant; Anthony Cook – Principal Consultant;

This 1-day course gives attendees an understanding of:

  • the mine value chain from discovery through to production
  • what goes into making a mine
  • a review of exploration, resource definition and grade control sampling methods
  • splitting techniques
  • the practical aspects of sampling errors
  • the importance of QAQC.

Areas covered in this course include:

Find anomalies (geochemical, geophysical, geological), test anomalies (drilling types and sample types); define resources (volume and grade estimation from data); define reserves (optimisation and cost considerations); production; open pit and underground mining methods and terminology.

Exploration sampling methods (rock chip, channels, RAB, LAG); resource definition sampling methods (RC and DDH drilling); grade control sampling methods (open pit and underground), process control sampling (briefly) and QC samples.

Sampling errors and how to minimise them:
Correct; incorrect; sub sampling methods; core cutting; splitting methods; sampling blasthole cones; pulp and reject.

Why QAQC is so important and how to do it correctly.

Ore control:
Open pit (spotting, floor levels); underground (ore-tracking).
