Excursion to areas of active and past mining activity and practical industry courses. Mapping relations between regional/local geology and ore deposit formation in the field and in active mines. Insight into the work of mine and exploration geologists, including geophysical measurements, geochemical data handling, economic evaluation, etc.
Understand the regional and local geology as a framework for ore deposit formation. Detailed field and drill core mapping of hydrothermal veining and alteration. Discuss actual mineral deposits and their position within this framework during mine visits. Study similarities and differences between processes leading to the formation of different ore deposit types. Obtain insight into challenges linking economic geology and mining with social and environmental constraints.
