DURATION: 1 min KEY OBJECTIVE OF SLIDE Learners get introduced to the lesson TRAINER NOTES Tell the learners that in this lesson they will learn more about Oyu Tolgoi – from our history, to the way we work. TRANSITION Let us begin by watching a video.
DURATION: 1 min KEY OBJECTIVE OF SLIDE Learners identify some key facts about Oyu Tolgoi TRAINER NOTES Let’s debrief on the previous activity – some of these answers were already mentioned. Tell the learners that in this lesson, they will understand how loud noise affects the ear and the importance of hearing protection. Step through bullets on the screen, expanding on the points below: Oyu Tolgoi means turquoise hill, which refers to the colour copper turns when exposed to the elements. Open Pit mining is used where deposits of minerals are found near the surface of the earth, whereas underground mining takes place when deposits are deep below the surface. Oyu Tolgoi has both types. Although copper is the main resource, gold and silver are also present in the rock that will be extracted. TRANSITION Moving on to the location of Oyu Tolgoi…
DURATION: 2 min KEY OBJECTIVE OF SLIDE Learners understand key facts about the Oyu Tolgoi mine TRAINER NOTES Let’s take a closer look at what makes Oyu Tolgoi special. As well as the incredible wealth it will generate (the cost of the construction of the mine will be paid off in just six years from what is produced) Oyu Tolgoi has many more special qualities. Step through points on the slide. Now, lets watch a short video To play the video you need to: Exit slide show mode (by pressing the “Escape” key on the keyboard). Double click on the video icon in the centre of the page. Or: Video “b. What makes OT Special” can be found at this link: https://eroom1.riotinto.com/eRoom1/eRoom/POSProjects/CopperLearningContentRepository/0_2d70b TRANSITION This is a quick knowledge check. Can you answer the following?
DURATION: 2 min KEY OBJECTIVE OF SLIDE Learners understand key facts about production in Oyu Tolgoi TRAINER NOTES Oyu Tolgoi’s copper production will place it amongst the top three mines in the world. It is estimated, in the first ten years of its life, average annual production will be 544 thousand tonnes of copper and 18.4 tonnes of gold. Let’s look at how this will compare to other mines: Grasberg (Indonesia) Annual production (2006): 610,800 tonnes copper and 58.4 tonnes of gold Fact: It is the largest gold mine in the world. Escondida (Chile) Annual production (2007): 779,000 tonnes of copper and 3.74 tonnes of gold Fact: It is currently the largest copper mine in the world, any strikes or reductions in production have a significant effect on global copper prices. Bingham Canyon (US) Annual production: 300,000 tonnes of copper and 11.3 tonnes of gold Fact: It is the deepest open pit mine in the world over 0.75 miles/ 1.2 km deep and can be seen from space with the naked eye. TRANSITION Let us watch a video to provide some more details about the Oyu Tolgoi mine.
DURATION: 1 min KEY OBJECTIVE OF SLIDE Learners identify the location of Oyu Tolgoi TRAINER NOTES This slides shows where Oyu Tolgoi is located in relation to Mongolia (shown on bottom image). That there are a number of facilities in China that can process the product (copper concentrate), so it is well located. Within the South Gobi Basin, there are two other non Oyu Tolgoi mining deposits - Kharmagtai and Tsagaan Suvraga. These contain copper, coal and molybdenum. TRANSITION Let us uncover the production estimates of Oyu Tolgoi.
