The Business of Mining

Louisa O'Connor, Felix Chan, Steve Hall, Bryan Maybee, Dan Packey, Other Contributors, CurtinX

Learn the theory behind running a mine and see if you've got what it takes to explore, plan, operate and close a mining operation.

Mining underpins much of our technology and industries as well as modern society in general. A successful mine should be run efficiently and responsibly from exploration through to closure, with sound economic management every step of the way. In this course you’ll examine the business aspect of mining, focusing on the life cycle of a gold mine and discovering the technical and economic issues that affect the exploration, planning, operation and closure of a large-scale mining project.

The Business of Mining has recently won the Best in Class in the University category of the Interactive Media Awards in the USA. The judging criteria included design, content, feature functionality, usability, standards compliance and cross-browser compatibility.

What will you learn

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Discover how new mineral deposits are found and examine the economic factors that govern their development.
