The short course aims at providing a common understanding of mineral production under a holistic value chain perspective and by considering the different periods of time of a mine’s life cycle. The course gives an introduction to process technology and by conveying general awareness of existing technical constraints with regard to both material and process. The level of detail has been adapted to the needs of a non‐technical target audience.

Learning outcomes

After completion of the course, participants should be able to:

• Describe different mineral resources (ore types, minerals)

• Explain the different steps in developing a mine project

• Describe the major unit operations that are used within ore dressing and mineral production

• Discuss the environmental, social and economic dimensions of sustainable mineral and metal production
