Course Description

Course Profile

Our graduates have a broad knowledge on prospecting, documenting and evaluating of mineral deposits. They are able to plan and perform an exploration program depending on genetic type of deposit and searched elements as well as controlling process of excavation of ore horizon. Knowledge acquired during studies allows to choose optimal field and laboratory assay methods necessary for both prospecting and documentation reports.

Our graduates know how to perform a field works and are familiar with methodology of different sampling methods. Theory knowledge is not all. During studies, graduates take part in obligatory field works and diploma field works. Place of diploma field works depends on the thesis (in last few years, graduates had diploma field works in Poland, Ukraine, Kosovo, Slovakia, Australia, Laos and Mongolia).

The Economic Geology graduates know how to evaluate collected samples under the microscope, choose samples for further chemical assay and evaluate results, described drill core (logging) and evaluate mineral deposits including, and calculate resources and reserves based on 3-4D model of deposit. Knowledge acquired in Economic Geology studies allows our graduates to use the newest software to present all sort of data as maps, diagrams, profiles, controlling validation of extracted mineral commodities and cooperate with miners fulfilling geological service. They are also familiar with software for mineral deposit modeling, reserve calculation and open-cut and underground mining management.
