The Basics of Geology, Mining, & Processing for the Investment Community

Our next public course will be held in Toronto on April 26 & 27, 2020


The only complete Geology, Mining, and Mineral Processing short course taught by professionals in each field.

The objective of the course is to provide the students with an understanding of the technical terms, methods, processes, the linkages between them, and the ability to better assess the technical risks.  This course is intended for people who are interested in a broad overview of how the mining business works from a technical perspective.  Aspects of Geology, Mining and Mineral Processing are addressed in the context of the discovery, development and production of mineral deposits.  For people with no technical background in geology or mining, the course provides a basic introduction of the critical technical factors impacting on the success of mining companies.  For those with some technical expertise, the course will serve as a refresher and as a way to integrate their specific knowledge into the broader technical aspects of the mining sector.
