Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Goal of the subject is to provide knowledge to the university student, so he/she will be able to understand given points at issue good enough to analyse its content, to realise synthesis of the acquired information and its evaluation. This sciential base allow student to compare results of the synthesis, propose modifications and solve the problems of the geology of the metalliferous and nonmetalliferous deposits.

Teaching methods



Acquiring broad knowledge in terms of the basic breakdown of deposit minerals into ore and non-ore minerals, and the corresponding classification of the two basic groups of deposits with knowledge of the criteria of economic utility.
