CET online Short Course Series

These  short courses are aimed at geoscientists from both industry and academia.
They will be delivered online from 15:00 to 18:00   (Perth time - UTC+8) every day to facilitate the attendance of professionals and researchers located remotely or overseas.
 


Fundamentals of Project Evaluation and Risk Analysis

This course is an ideal practical introduction to project modelling and financial evaluation for professionals in the mineral exploration, mining and security industry.

It will provide an understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts of finance and project evaluation as applied to the resources sector. The focus will be on practical learning based on the construction of a financial model of a mine using Excel. Modelling will progress from an initial simplistic template to a more realistic ‘base’ case, including more detailed consideration of its revenue function and funding of capital investments during its pre-production stage.

Delivery mode: Online 
Date: 24th to 27th August 2021
Duration: 4 days (12 hours) three-hour daily sessions from 15:00 to 18:00 (Perth time - GMT+8)

Cost: CET Members AU$ 360 + GST  - Non-Members AU$ 500 +GST -University Postdocs and Fellows AU$ 200  - Students AU$ 100

Presenter: Dr Pietro Guj is a Research Professor at the Centre for Exploration Targeting of the University of Western Australia and an Adjunct Professor in Mineral Economics at the Western Australian School of Mines of Curtin University. Prior to these academic roles, his international career includes 23 years in geology and mineral exploration/mining in Asia, Africa and Australia and 16 years in Government where, after a period as a finance executive for the Water Authority, he held the role of Executive Director of the Geological Survey and of Deputy Director-General of the Department of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia. His main interests are in project evaluation, risk analysis and resources governance with emphasis on the formulation and administration of internationally competitive mining regulatory and fiscal regimes; fields in which he has lectured, published and consulted widely internationally,  primarily for the World Bank.

Certificate of Attendance: Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate of attendance

Critical Evaluation of 3D Geological Models

The course is aimed at geoscientists from both industry and academia who desire to gain a better insight on the latest advances in 3D geological modelling, with a focus on regional-scale and on-shore modelling language.

This three-day course will cover the principles of 3D geological modelling from a software-agnostic perspective. We will cover a range of 3D modelling use cases; discuss the choice of input data; the various methodologies for predicting 3D geology; how to characterise and reduce uncertainty; how to incorporate geophysical constraints and how to use 3D models as part of a minerals prospectivity workflow.
