ESS2302H1  Mineral Resources

This course will focus on the fundamental processes by which Earth materials are concentrated into economically-viable deposits. The geology, petrology and geochemistry of specific types of mineral deposits will be used to focus discussion on petrogenetic models of ore formation. Possible types of deposits will include diamonds, other gems, porphry systems, magmatic sulfides, sed-ex and volcanogenic massive sulfide. The course will be team taught, in which individual instructors will focus on a particular deposit type, providing some lectures for background prior to reading the important literature.
