Summary

Student obtaines the informations about the importance of the mineral raw materials for the economy of the state. The definition of the terms "mineral” , "mineral deposit" and “mineral raw material", "mineral reserves and resources" will explained. The lectures also include mineralogical and petrographical composition of the mineral deposits, geological conditions of the mineral deposits origin, morphology of the mineral deposits and review main industry types of the mineral deposits. Signification of the classification of the mineral reserves and resources and methods of the mineral deposits estimation, are explained. Relations between estimation of the mineral deposits reserves and mine construction are explained. Explained are also problems of the mineral statistics and mineral balance.
