The Basics of Geology, Mining and Mineral Processing for the Investment Community

Professional Development Seminar

Do you manage a portfolio that includes mining-related investments? Do you work in the mining industry as a human resources specialist, lawyer or accountant? Do you want to better understand the science and engineering that underlies success in the mining industry? If so, this two-day seminar in Toronto might be just right for you.

Queen's University is at the forefront of mining engineering science. Queen's Robert M. Buchan School of Mining has consistently graduated alumni that go on to shape the future of the industry. Our alumni have implemented research that has impacted sustainability, efficiency, and productivity.

This two-day seminar is designed for business leaders who want to better understand the science that underlies success in mining. Business leaders who take this course will be better able to:

  • Assess the valuation of new and existing mining explorations
  • Appreciate the differences in value and cost of different resources
  • Evaluate the actual costs of extraction of given resources
  • Understand the potential environmental impact of mining operations and exploration
  • Understand the physics and chemistry that define commodity pricing in global markets, to better identify scarce or undervalued products

Ultimately, this seminar is for ambitious, exceptional and curious senior-level administrators and investment professionals who seek to bring a fundamental understanding of science to their firms. Understanding the science behind natural resources will help you make better, long-term decisions that have less to do with market fluctuations and more to do with actual value.
