In this course, concepts and data are brought together for integration and analysis using GIS and modelling systems to assess mineral resources potential.
In this nine-week course, your are trained in the use of remote sensing and GIS techniques for mineral exploration. Sustainable development of a country's mineral resources is generally seen as a key factor in economic growth. The search for mineral resources relies on conceptual models and modern technologies.
Selection of the search area is based on a thorough knowledge of the concepts of ore genesis and the geological terrains likely to host the many different types of mineral deposits. Exploration data for prospective areas are acquired from satellite and airborne sensors, geochemical and heavy mineral surveys, and from geological mapping.
In this course, concepts and data are brought together for integration and analysis using GIS and modelling systems to assess mineral resources potential. The main subjects in this course are mineral deposit geology, exploration geochemistry, spectral remote sensing and mineral prospectivity modelling.
To train participants in GIS and remote sensing as applied to mineral exploration.
Lectures, practicals, case studies, multi-disciplinary projects, individual study topics, group assignments.
Mineral deposit geology, exploration geochemistry, spectral remote sensing, mineral prospectivity mapping.
