Onsite Training – Open Pit

ACG Onsite Geotechnical Training for Open Pit Mines

The ACG’s one to three day onsite training courses are designed for practical operational personnel, mine planners, mining engineers, geologists and anyone involved in day-to-day open cut metalliferous and coal mining operations.

Ground Support in Open Pit Mining

The training course examines ground support and its application in open pit mines from design through to implementation and monitoring/reconciliation.

Geotechnical Engineering for Open Pit Mines

This training course discusses geotechnical management plans and risk analysis; structural geology and geotechnical implications; pit slope stability; and managing ground water. Case studies will feature slope monitoring and instrumentation techniques.

Introduction to Geomechanics of Open Pits

To view the training modules from a typical “Introduction to Geomechanics” onsite training course, please see the training overview below. The training modules can be adapted to site requirements by adding or subtracting topics.

Phil Dight (Australian Centre for Geomechanics) has extensive consulting experience in the geotechnical aspects of the mining industry, and has worked on open pit and underground metalliferous mining problems.
