GEOE 362 Resource Engineering
Characterization of major ore deposit types using petrological, geochemical and geophysical engineering sciences, including tectonic setting, age, rock composition, geometry, mineralogy and textures, geochemical and geophysical signatures of mineral deposits. Design involves evaluation of ore deposit models and exploration programs, including ore processing and environmental issues. Laboratory work integrates investigation of mineral deposit's samples to determine paragenetic sequences, estimation of ore grade and evaluation of issues related to ore processing and site contamination.
