MINE 1013 - Mining Industry Risk - Identification, Assessment and Management

Mining Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

Risk is everywhere in the mining industry – financial, technical, environmental and – increasingly - social. Junior and mid-tier mining companies may not have a dedicated Risk Officer, but nevertheless need a comprehensive risk management strategy. This course unpacks risk in all its dimensions: learners will systematically identify, objectively assess, cost effectively monitor and strategically manage risk. Learners will also examine scenarios where successful risk management generated opportunities. This course will appeal to, and benefit from, a diversity of mining industry backgrounds, including directors, investor relations, analysts, accountants, technical professionals, CSR specialists and corporate development officers.
