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 4 - Underground Geologic Data and Reserve Estimation is the fourth in a suite of five courses; other courses in the suite are "The Geologic Baseline", "The Economic Framework", "Surface Geologic Data", and "The Geologist's Role in Exploration and Mining". Topics covered in this course include underground geologic mapping, sampling and sample preparation, reserve estimation and classification, and communication of geologic data. 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, or the engineer with a desire to expand his/her horizons, this course provides a comprehensive, integrated approach to underground mineral exploration and reserve estimation, as well as an extensive technical reference.
Exploration and Mining Geology 4 - Underground Geologic Data consists of 12 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 12 hours of viewing content.
