Executive Program Exploration Targeting Economic Aspect of Exploration Targeting
Mineral Economics Consultant, Adjunct Professor at Queen`s University
This course will address the issues that face exploration groups in a changing global environment for the mineral industry. These issues include fluctuating commodity prices, the escalation in costs associated with constructing and operating new mining projects, the capital crisis facing many junior explorers, and the refocus of senior companies on quality rather than size of assets. We will examine how these topics impact on the minimum tonnage grade conditions required to justify the cost and time of discovering new economic deposits. Course materials will draw on a broad range of international case studies with emphasis placed on the gold and base metal sectors.
