MNG 3505   Environmental Management for Mining   Credits: 3

In this course, students will be introduced to the underlying causes of environmental issues related to the mining industry. Typical issues to be addressed include sources of air, water, and noise pollution with emphasis on acid mine drainage and solid waste management and the steps required to manage and monitor their environmental impact. This requires an understanding of the Federal, Provincial, and Municipal legislative requirements for all stages of the mine life cycle. Students will also consider: the concept of sustainability, environmental accountability, legislative trends, global environmental concerns and their impacts on the mining industry, and occupational health topics (handling and storage of hazardous materials), risk assessment, and health and safety concerns pertaining to diesel use underground. To enhance course material students will examine case studies and have relevant field trips and industry guest lecturers.
