Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of the subject is mastered problems mining cohesive and cohesionless raw material inclusive their adjustment and usage.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Students will be introduced to the basics of commercial exploitation of mineral resources, coal, ore and non-metallic underground locations in the fracture and mining, mining methods affected by the choice of storage-geological condi- kami. There will also be familiar with basic over-floor deposits of opening, Level and podúrovňových, selecting mining, transport and incorporation mechanisms in underground mines and quarries, and the erasure effects of mining after mining operations on the mining sites.
