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 economic geology and find relations with others fields of geology.

Summary

Basic terms of deposit geology. Factors affecting the importance of the deposit. The mineralogical composition of deposits of mineral raw materials, desirable admixtures and impurities. Types of classifications of deposits of mineral raw materials. The genetic classification of deposits of mineral raw materials (magmatic, pegmatite, carbonatite, contact-metasomatic, pyrite polymetallic, hydrothermal, hydrogenic, weathering, sedimentary – mechanical, chemical and biogenic-, metamorphic deposits). Industrial types of metalliferous, nonmetalliferous deposits, deposits of fuels and energy minerals and hydromineral deposits. An overview of their world reserves and productions. The deposit base of the Czech Republic.
