Risk management is rapidly becoming a cornerstone of modern mining and mining projects. The “Risk Register” may be used as an initial measure of risk identification and risk awareness not only for exploration, but also as a basis for future development, construction and mining activities. The “Risk Register” can be an integral piece for quality decision-making for resource exploration, development, construction and production. Biographies: Dave Evans received his B.Sc. in geology and chemistry from the University of British Columbia in 1966 and his Ph.D. in Applied Geochemistry from the Royal School of Mines, University of London in 1971. He has over 35 years experience in resource exploration, development and production mining projects. Dave specializes in risk and decision analysis, strategic planning and risk management applications for energy and mining projects with particular emphasis on cost and schedule risk analysis for new and expansion projects, and for mine closure and decommissioning. He also has extensive experience in risk assessment applications for political and social risk, geotechnical evaluations, geological hazards and sustainable development assessments.   Dave is a certified mediator and practices in dispute resolution for environmental, resource and project management engagements. He is a member of APEGGA’s Discipline Committee and was recently appointed as a Board Member to the Alberta Environmental Appeals Board. Chris Coulthard received his B.A. (Honours) in Computing and Information Sciences from the University of Guelph in 1986. He has extensive experience in the application of risk and decision analysis techniques to assist owner groups in planning and managing large scale capital projects. His project work includes civil, mining, transportation and energy developments, ranging in value from $25 million to over $30 billion. The analyses have covered all phases of project development including, feasibility, detailed design, construction, start up, sustained operations and decommissioning.   Chris has also developed and facilitated project management training and risk awareness workshops domestically and internationally.
