Beyond Data – Conceptual Site Models in Site Characterization & Remediation

Beyond Data – Conceptual Site Models in Site Characterization & Remediation

Date:

Oct 18th – Nov 22nd, 2021

Location:

Online

Cost:

Bundle of 6 Modules – $850

Instructor:

Guy Patrick

Course Description:

“Beyond Data” takes investigation and interpretation of site contamination to a new level, giving you an in-depth understanding of what really matters – the use of a Conceptual Site Model (“CSM”). Learn to develop a CSM from the get-go to develop focused investigations with meaningful conclusions. Gather the information needed for successful remediation. This highly interactive virtual workshop uses many real world examples and the latest concepts in adult learning to put you into the critical learning zone, gaining competency in the assessment and interpretation of environmental data, and in the communication of your findings. Working in ZOOM and using synthetic data sets, you will draw stratigraphic cross-sections, post and contour data, examine fate and transport processes, think, hypothesize, test and write. Through strategically linked lecturettes, you will gain an understanding of current and innovative approaches to site investigation, risk management and cleanup. Read More….

2021 BC MEND ML/ARD Workshop

2021 BC MEND ML/ARD Workshop

Date:

December 7-9, 2021

Location:

Online

Cost:

$100

Instructor:

N/A

Course Description:

Leading practitioners will illustrate challenges and best practices in metal leaching and ARD. The focus of the workshop will be field-scale research and operational experience. Case studies will be drawn from mine sites around the world. This year’s workshop will again be completely virtual. To allow for a similar number of presentations, while recognizing the challenge of a virtual environment and the pressures of the workday, we have chosen to split the workshop into three half day sessions. While we will greatly miss the opportunity to meet in person, this format offers us the ability to broaden our reach through an increased number of registration spots and to facilitate speakers and attendees from around the world. As such, we ask that you inform peers and colleagues who may not have previously attended. We hope to return to in-person in 2022. Registration will open in October. Please check the BC/MEND Metal Leaching/Acid Rock Drainage Workshop website (https://bc-mlard.ca/) for program updates and to view previous presentations.
