Advanced Mineral Deposits EASC 628 (3)
A graduate-level overview of the role tectonics and fluid-rock interaction play in the genesis and spatial distribution of ore deposits. Basic skills used to aid the understanding of, and exploration for, ore deposits will be reviewed, including aspects of geophysics, geochemistry, petrography, and field methods. The focus of the course will be tailored to the technical background of the students, and the concepts and skills most relevant to their research interests and needs. Prerequisite: Undergraduate geology degree or permission of the instructor. Students with credit for EASC 401 may not take this course for further credit.
