Course Objectives Relationship between plate tectonic with ore deposits origin. Reserve and grade concepts. Ore textures and structure relationship with paragenesis. Systematic sampling for research, ore exploration techniques. Defining drilling location, and hole logging. Lithology-ore relationship. Importance of alteration and anomaly in ore exploration. Modern methods in ore exploration.
Course Description Summary knowledge about ore deposits, definition and meaning of ore prospection, definition of influence area, grade, density and reserve. Subsurface geological prospection, sampling, measure, mapping, approaches to ore, laboratory operation, prospection of radioactive and luminescant minerals, placer prospection, underground prospection, geophysical prospection, drill samples, logging.
