  • Objectives
    On completion of this course, students should have developed the skills and knowledge to understand how mineral deposits are formed, found, evaluated, extracted, and processed.Students should also be able to design mining excavations and sequences, for both surface and underground mining operations and understand how to dewater and ventilate mines, and preserve the health of workers against the hazards caused by dust, smoke, and radiation.Students should also understand the principles of risk management and hazard reduction, and the framework of state mining legislation.
