Exploration of Sediment-Hosted Metals

Course Details

This richly-illustrated virtual crash-course will be taught live over Zoom and provides a general overview of sediment-hosted metals in a wide range of depositional environments. Metals covered include Gold, Lead, Zinc, Copper, Uranium and Vanadium. Through a series of quizzes, discussions and short exercises we will try our best to keep the course interactive and engaging.
