sharing in governance of extractive industries

Dear Goxi members,

I am looking for any hints on good e-learning courses on extractive industries issues. Most of you may be familar with the (newly branded) SDG academy (https://courses.sdgacademy.org/). I enjoyed their courses, but I am now looking for some more technical courses, in particular on natural resource economics.

Any suggestions for, possibly free, online courses? Other than this, any good guidelines or literature may help as well.

Further, I got across the "Edumine" page, with a great range of courses on all different topics around geoscience, mining operations, but also some environmental and social issues. (http://www.edumine.com/courses/online-courses). Only drawback here is the 42 USD enrollment fee per month.

Therefore my seond question, any experiences with the edumine courses? Recommendable for a geoscience layman?

Hi Kennedy, thank you for the reply and advise. I will have a deeper look, I assume you mean edx.org.

Thank you and best wishes from Mongolia.


Queen's University, in Canada where I teach, has a new fully online Bachelor of Mining Technology program,(https://btech.engineering.queensu.ca/curriculum/) that includes a 4th year course in Ore Body Modelling and Resource Estimation ( offered Fall 2018 as I recall).  I mention the program to indicate the level of the course - knowledge of basic business economics is assumed, but facility with college level math, industry basics are assumed.  

We have a graduate program in Social Performance Management that is online as well, but I think you would value the mineral economics course.


Hi Anne, thanks for your advice. I have now enrolled into an MBA at the TU Bergakademie in Freiberg, Germany. I will have a look into your course as well though.



Hi Richard,

My mistake. I should have noticed the date of your post!
