Summary

The course is focused on the complex process of acquiring mineral deposits in the Czech Republic. Students will gradually get acquainted with the basic structure of the process of mastering the mineral deposit, which in the initial phase consists in conducting and evaluating a geological survey, and which is completed by determining the mining area (DP) and permitting mining activities or ČPHZ. All teaching respects the relevant legislative framework and is closely linked to practice.
