Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The student will learn how to classify the basic types of organizational structures in the subject Exploitation of deep-mines deposits and how to identify their strengths and weaknesses. The aim is to define and reproduce facts, to interpret acquired pieces of information in new situations and to compare them. Subsequently, the students will learn how to analyse information, connect pieces of information, order information according to importance and use it in experiments and synthesis with a view to definite recommendations.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Further to the subject “Mining of Deposits”, the technologies used in underground mining of coal, metalliferous, non-metalliferous, and uranium deposits in normal and complicated conditions are discussed, including the relevant regulations and suitable machinery equipment. The conventional methods are supplemented by the modern non-traditional and geotechnological ones.
