The course is designed to introduce the techniques used to assess and value mineral projects. The focus is on the costs, risks and returns associated with the mineral exploration and feasibility phases of the mineral supply process whereby unknown mineral deposits are discovered, developed and produced. The course integrates the technical information related to mineral deposits with the economic assessments required to make proper investment decisions in the minerals industry. The number of participants will be limited to 30 in order to maximize the interaction and discussion throughout the week. International case studies will be used to highlight the course material and provide a highly applied approach to mineral project evaluation.
Course Format and Delivery
The course will be delivered over a 4 and a 1/2 day intensive program integrating lectures by the course leader and group assignments for course participants. The course is structured so as to be highly applied and maximize interaction of course leaders and participants. An integral part of the course is small group work whereby participants in the course are divided into smaller groups of five to discuss and complete assignments and industry case studies based on each segment of the course material. Each group will be responsible for presenting their assignments to the class.

Past Course Comments:
"Great presentation, speaking and communication.
Good practical examples, and enormous depth of experience to draw upon.
Essential knowledge for anyone who is involved in the business of mining
"Dr. Doggett made a seemingly boring topic very
interesting. Looking at the course schedule beforehand was somewhat
frightening but he proved it was the opposite. Dr. Doggett is very
intelligent and can communicate complex ideas and concepts from several
"Dr. Michael Doggett is a great lecturer and
very knowledgeable of the subject matter"
"Dr. Doggett presented the course materials in a
good, easy to understand fashion and he gave relevant examples. The
course assignments were good and helped the students work through the
problems to ensure understanding"
"Even though the course is intended for those
with a technical background, as someone with a financial background and
very limited technical knowledge I found the course very useful. It
provides clarity around both basic technical and financial fundamentals,
and makes the crucial connections between the two for determining
economic viability. The instruction and organization are great, as the
material is communicated effectively and the flow was smooth."
"In my opinion, the course is well supported by
the teaching-skills and experience of Michael. He was able to
communicate a lot of empirical and theoretical knowledge to the
attendants and provided several useful examples of actual mining cases.
These points were complemented by a good course coordination in terms of
resources, materials and logistic. In particular, I liked the UBC Robson
Square as a place for conferences. "
