Summary

The subject acquaints students with methods of processing extracted minerals, aiming to evaluate the raw material so that the resulting products can serve in other areas of human activity. The subject provides an overview of technologies used in the treatment and processing of individual types of extracted mineral resources. Within the subject, a high emphasis is placed on innovative trends and modern processes of raw materials processing, especially in terms of minimizing their impact on the environment and high efficiency. Theoretical knowledge is verified by laboratory experiments, which show the practical application of studied methods.
