Module content
Lectures:

What is ore petrology? Petrology and genesis of mineral deposits relationship. Theory of reflected light. Ore microscope building, types of microscopes. How to use ore microscope in practice. Characteristics of ore minerals, identification of ore minerals, optical and physical features of ore minerals, qualitative and quantitative analyses, micro photography, industrial importance of this analysis for metallurgical tests.

Laboratory classes:

Round 60 different ore minerals should be determine by the individual students. Practical knowledge – how to identified ore minerals, individual work with ore microscope, description of structures and textures and their importance in petrology. Individual project related to the genesis of a selected mineral deposit.
