Integration Of Coal Exploration Activities - The Downstream Value-added Chain And Risk Assessments

MOTIVATION

With the advent of many new or smaller mines, and increased contribution by the smaller contributors, there is also an increase in the rate of failure.  The bigger role players in industry are not safe guarded against potential failures and history may repeat itself.  Every failure or non-conformance comes at a price and the investor is generally the biggest loser.
This course seeks to outline the importance of integrating the geological characteristics with the downstream requirements to prevent a project failure.

PRESENTERS

Gerhard Esterhuizen graduated from the University of the Free State with a B.Sc. (Geology) and B.Sc. (Hon. Energy Studies) from the University of Johannesburg and has spent some 28 years with Sasol Mining in the Geology Department and Strategic Capacity Management Department.  He is a coal specialist and advises companies on the development of Exploration Business Plans, Management of the Exploration Programmes, potential utilisation of the coal products and risk analyses.
