Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of the subject is detailed familiarization students with mining, transport plus adjustment coaly raw material on opencast mining company. Part of education are rule for labour protection plus safety in service plus legislature given to areas.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


Further to the other special mining subjects, the students will gain more knowledge of the opencast mining of deposits. The focus of the subject lies in the knowledge of technological processes of mining, transporting and dumping in coal and non-coal open pits and on quarries of building raw materials
