Mineral Resources in Space and Time

04-GEO-RE3

Lecturer

Hartwig Frimmel

ECTS

5 ECTS

 

Aim

The students obtain basic, up-to-date insights into the geology of mineral deposits on the basis of concrete examples. Furthermore they obtain the ability to classify known and new mineral deposits/occurrences in a genetic way, thus laying the foundation for optimising future exploitation and exploration strategies.

 

Content

The course provides an overview of the multitude of mineral deposits – essential georesources for the sustainable utilization of planet Earth. In particular, processes that can lead to the economic concentration of mineral resources will be discussed using examples of major deposit types. This includes magmatic, hydrothermal and sedimentary processes that resulted in the formation of economically viable deposits of ore minerals, solid fuels and industrial minerals.

 

Coding

Coding examples and individual work will be covered

Software

Various software programs will be used, but mainly OpenSource software such as R.

Techniques

Different techniques will be introduced and practically applied.

Content

The content of scientific with regard to the audience will be discussed.
