Conduct underground mine surveys

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Conduct underground mine surveys' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.


Prepare for underground mine surveying.


Client requirements and project specifications are identified in consultation with appropriate persons.


Processes and procedures involved in undertaking underground mining methods are planned according to organisational requirements.


Mining techniques applicable to developing headings in underground mining operations are planned according to project objectives and organisational requirements.


Underground mining methods for metalliferous and coal mines are determined according to project specifications and organisational requirements.


Project specifications are developed that incorporate levels of rock stability, ground support, and loading and haulage requirements for underground mines.


Mine ventilation requirements for underground mines are detailed in project specifications according to organisational requirements.


Plan underground mine surveying operations.


Surveying objectives, deliverables, constraints, work activities and surveying equipment needs are identified and documented according to spatial data specifications and organisational requirements.


Project management mechanisms are implemented to schedule, measure, record and report progress of activities in relation to agreed schedule and plans.


Agreed communication processes between client and other appropriate persons are implemented and maintained.


Risk management and contingency strategies are devised and followed to ensure project complies with legal and statutory standards and organisational requirements.


Conduct operational elements of underground mine surveying.


Identified spatial components of mine design are accurately measured or set out according to project specifications.


Measured spatial data is reduced to project reference system for comparison with design.


Mine drawings are created to meet project specifications.


Captured data is reduced and used to calculate mine volumes according to project specifications.


Measurements are validated and recorded according to organisational requirements.


Problems are identified and resolved, and contingencies managed according to organisational requirements.


Underground development is set out according to design parameters.


Finalise and report project outcomes.


Project is finalised and checked for compliance with project specifications and organisational requirements.


Appropriate persons are notified of project results according to organisational requirements.


Documentation is completed and spatial data archived according to project and organisational requirements.
