This course covers the processes that control the formation of ore deposits, energy and geothermal resources. Resource forming processes are examined in the framework of the tectonic, petrogenetic and geochemical evolution of the Earth's crust on local, regional and global geological scales. Thus, the course draws upon igneous and metamorphic processes, geochemistry and structural geology. The course also introduces geochemical techniques that can be applied to the detection and mapping of mineral resources. Practical work emphasises the mesoscopic recognition of ore minerals and textures in both hand sample and drill core, and the methods of data collection presentation and analysis of geochemical data in mapping ore deposits.
