The Exploration and Mining Geology suite of courses uses the concepts and practices of applied geology as its central theme, here is a balanced and comprehensive treatment of the geological, geochemical, geophysical, and economic elements of exploration and mining. Offers an overview of the methods and aims in mineral exploration and production and gives coverage of the geologic principles of ore deposits and the geomorphic environment. Deals with "hard" minerals and the nonfluid sources of materials and energy in the continental masses and in ocean basins.
Exploration and Mining Geology 2 - The Economic Framework is the second in a suite of five courses; other courses in the suite are "The Geologic Baseline", "Surface Geologic Data", "Underground Geologic Data and Reserves Estimation", and "The Geologist's Role in Exploration and Mining". Topics covered in this course include Mines and Mineral Economics, Ore Value and the Concept of an Orebody, Engineering Economy Analysis in Exploration and Mining. The course includes numerous examples, reference tables and author references and has been extensively integrated with the Dictionary of Mining, Mineral and Related Terms for terminology reference purposes.
For the geologist, engineer or project manager, this course provides an overview and insight into the economic framework within which mineral properties and projects must be estimated and evaluated.
Exploration and Mining Geology 2 - The Economic Framework consists of 10 viewing sessions of 30 - 60 minutes each with supporting figures, tables and examples, plus extensive appendices and interactive course reviews. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 10 hours of viewing content.
