NEW EDITION OF THE MINE VENTILATION COURSE AT AYMA | FEBRUARY 2020
AYMA Mining is starting the new edition of its Mine Ventilation Course, which will be from February 10 – 14, 2020 at Edificio Ariete in Polígono Pisa (c/ Innovación, 6-8, 41927 Mairena del Aljarafe).
Since December 13, 2019, registration has been opened for the next course offered at AYMA: Mine ventilation. The objective of this course, which takes place from February 10 – 14, 2020 in Mairena del Aljarafe, Sevilla, is to provide a deeper knowledge of the theory, techniques and processes of underground mine ventilation, applied to hard rock mining.
The Ventilation Course is specifically oriented towards mining engineers, mining technicians, mining engineering students, and in general, professionals with jobs related to ventilation (design, operation).
Classes will be delivered by Dr. Rick Brake –Mine Ventilation Australia (MVA)–, Australian mining engineer with 30 years of experience in both underground and open-pit mines in Australia and North America. Brake’s distinguished career path is ideal for teaching a course such as this. He graduated with honors from the University of Queensland, earned an MBA from the University of Deakin and a Doctorate in Physiology from the University of Curtin. He is a Fellow Member of AusIMM, member of the Mine Ventilation Society of South Africa and a member of the Minerals Industry Consultants Association of Australia.
In addition, he was the Ventilation Superintendent of four underground mines of Mount Isa in the mid 80’s. In 1999 he created his own consulting company, Mine Ventilation Australia, specializing in areas related to interior ventilation, mine cooling, heat stress and evacuation and entrapment. His company has served as a consultancy for numerous underground mines in Australia, China, Southeast Asia and Africa. He has a long, reputable and demonstrated experience with numerous courses and seminars about mine ventilation, evacuation-entrapment and heat stress, and he has published more than 30 technical articles on these subjects. In 2017 he received the Howard Hartman award, one of the most important awards worldwide on the subject of mine ventilation, and was the first non-North American to receive it.
If you would like to take part in this course, don’t wait for too long because there are only eight places left.
