MNGN - Introduction to Rock Mechanics. Fall Semester - Course Outline. Instructor: Dr. Ugur Ozbay Office: BB ; tel: () ; email: [email protected] Objective. The course aims at students developing a good working understanding of the basic and fundamental principles of rock mechanics as applied to designing and stabilizing excavations in rock masses.   Make sense of mining company investments. Great Deposits of the World – Mount Isa Zn-Pb-Ag; Cu Deposits. Located in the Mount Isa inlier of Queensland, Australia, the Mt Isa deposits represent the largest accumulations of lead, zinc. The Mount Isa (Pb-Zn-Ag orebodies) have been mined by Mount Isa Mines since and for a brief period in it was the largest company in Australia. Today it is owned by giant multinational mining company Glencore Xstrata who are currently planning the next stage of the mine to keep it in operation for the next 20 to 30 years. Client: Mount Isa Mines. Task: Treatment of all sewage and wastewater leaving no smells. Project Manager: Alan Duke. Mt Isa Mine operates two separate mining and processing streams, copper and zinc, to deliver natural resources that have enduring roles in society. With the largest zinc resource base and the biggest underground network of mines.
