Module content
Lectures:

During the lecture, most important examples of mineral deposits, of different origin will be presented and discussed. Geology of world class mineral deposits e.g. Bushveld complex, Great dyke, Sudbury, Norylsk, Merensky Reef, Ocorusu, Silliniarvi, Chuquicamta, Myszków, Copper Belt, Lubin – Kupferschiefer type; Cigar Lake, MontGee (U deposit).
Metallogenic provinces and epochs in relation to plate tectonic.
How to construct 2D-3D-4D model of mineral deposits.
Selected deposits of building and industrial materials.

Practical classes:

Individual project: description of one selected mineral deposit. Evaluation of economic importance of collected samples. Factors controlling ore mineralization based on world class deposits. Multimedia presentation of project.
