Mines are dynamic engineering projects which are continually changing as the mining process is undertaken. In order to ensure continuous operation and viability, the development of a mine needs to be carefully planned. As mining progresses, and conditions change, design of various elements in the mining operation must occur. This course provides a background to how mines are planned and developed, and the major factors which will influence mine development. The course also focusses on the design of some of the major elements and processes of mining.
