Course Objectives

This course is intended to provide a basic theoretical understanding of: (1) the minerals industry and current mineral exploration practices, and (2) the nature, form, and global distribution of selected mineral deposit types, and (3) the linkages between regional geological and tectonic processes and ore formation. The laboratory sessions are designed to introduce students to the major characteristics of ore and alteration minerals, and common mineral associations that are observed in mineral deposits.
