(updated 09/24/12)









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 5-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.  Lectures and course materials will be presented in English.
