This is a concise course on rock engineering for non-engineers in mining. The course addresses rock engineering issues for personnel of mining companies who are not directly involved in mining: people like managers, metallurgists, field geologists... even accountants, secretaries and lawyers. This course has been given to mining companies and mining operations around the world, primarily so that non-engineering personnel can understand what operations personnel need at the mine site level. The goal is to give non-engineering personnel an appreciation of the volume of rock failures and their implications.
A Rock Engineering Primer for Non-Engineers in Mining consists of 7 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, tables and examples, plus interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 3 hours of viewing content.
