16.-17.12.2015: "Magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits: geology, genesis and exploration criteria"

Short Course given by Prof. J. Bruce Gemmell (Petersen professorship 2015)

- on registration only -


  • Why are metallic mineral deposits important?
  • Where and why do they form?
  • How do we find more resources?


In this 2-day course, we will discuss the basics of economic geology, the geology and genesis of porphyry Cu-Mo-Au, skarn Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag-Au, high-sulfidation Cu-Au, low sulfidation Au-Ag and volcanic-hosted massive sulfide Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag-Au deposits.  Modern and ancient examples will be given. Exploration techniques and criteria will also be covered.
