The programme covers mineral deposit studies, resource evaluation, basic petroleum systems, minerals engineering and extractive metallurgy, accounting and cash flow modelling and quantitative finance. By adopting this complementary approach, financial models can be used to identify how and why timing is critical in optimizing return on investment and to demonstrate how financial engineering can enhance returns to investors. Metals and Energy Finance capitalizes on this approach, and identifies and examines the investment opportunities offered across the extractive industry’s cycle, from exploration through evaluation, pre-production development, development and production.
The development of digital learning platforms by Universities across the world have greatly enhanced the dynamics of a lecture room. As a direct result of the impact of COVID-19, The Imperial College Centre for Continuing Professional Development is launching its well established “Metals and Energy Finance” course as a distance learning initiative covering both technical appraisal and financial evaluation of mineral projects. This follows the successful delivery of the “Introduction to Mining and Mining Finance” course as an On-line option.
The course is made up of four modules: (*two of which run in parallel on Day 1)
Registered participants who attend and complete an evaluation at the end of the course will receive a formal Imperial College London Certificate of Attendance.
