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, Vanadium and Lithium. Through a series of quizzes, discussions and short exercises we will try our best to keep the course interactive and engaging.

Who Should Attend

Geologists, Mining Engineers, Environmental Scientists and other professionals who are interested in developing an in-depth understanding of sediment-hosted metals.
