Mining Engineer CDR Career Episode Report Sample 1

Project Name: Advanced Mining Seismicity Processing

In first career episode, the author describes the project he did when he was pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Mining Engineering. The project was “Advanced Mining Seismicity Processing”. The key responsibilities of the author in this project were:

  • Carry out preliminary research ground monitoring
  • Application of Advanced Event Detection, Location and Magnitude Estimation Methods
  • Testing and analysis of strengths and weaknesses of each method
  • Addressing the potential for causing induced seismicity events by applying computing techniques for data mining, discovery, integration and analysis
  • Accessing and combining data and tools to evaluate the correlations and spatio-temporal trends

EA approved Mining Engineer Career Episode Report Sample 2

Project Name: Sustainability Analysis of Copper Extraction and Processing Using LCA Methods

In second career episode, the author describes the engineering skills he employed in the project entitled “Sustainability Analysis of Copper Extraction and Processing Using LCA Methods”,submitted for the fulfilment of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. His duties and responsibilities in the project were as follows:

  • Development of a complete LCA framework for the “cradle-to-gate” assessment of alternative copper exploitation and production technologies
  • Development of a comprehensive and quantitative Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) database
  • Comparison of copper production technologies in terms of LCA, waste production and water resource consumption
  • Identification of opportunities which can reduce environmental impacts and wastes produced, and help improve water efficiency in a life-cycle perspective
  • Enabling the Monte Carlo based sensitivity analysis, in order to assess the effect of data, and modelling uncertainty and variability on the calculated impact indicator results

Mining Engineer Discipline Career Episode Report Sample 3

Project Name: Application of Treated Oil Sands Drill Cuttings Waste in Micropiles Construction

In third career episode, the technical skills of the author are demonstrated which he used to complete the assignment project while completing his university study. The project was “Application of Treated Oil Sands Drill Cuttings Waste in Micropiles Construction ”. The key responsibilitiestaken up by the author were:

  • Investigation of the physical, chemical and mineralogical characteristics of treated oil sand wastes (TOSW)
  • Studying the effect of treated oil sand wastes (TOSW) addition on fresh properties of grout used in the installation of hollow bar micropiles
  • Discovering the effect of the treated waste on the percentage of heavy materials leached from the tested grout mixtures
  • Investigation of the load transfer mechanism of hollow bar micropiles under axial compression load, and assessment of load distribution of micropiles due to axial load
  • Examination of the interface properties between the grout body of hollow bar micropiles and the surrounded soil, and assessment of effect of treated oil sand waste on the surface properties of hollow bar micropiles

Mining Engineers CDR Summary Statement Sample:

For CDR Report, summary statement written by author represents all the competency elements required as a Mining Engineer. As guided by Engineers Australia migration skills assessment booklet, summary statement comprises of cross references to the relevant paragraph of the episodes. The Summary Statement written with CDR must be in accordance with the requirements of the Engineers Australia.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Sample for CDR:

The CPD list to be included with CDR Report includes professional courses, non-professional courses and private study. Author’s Mining Engineering Knowledge is judged based on the CPD provided to EA.
