Short Courses

These courses are designed to equip participants with the skills necessary to cope with mineralized outcrops and/or drill core in order to develop a picture of the style and evolution of the system and particularly the controls on mineralization. The courses are therefore practically oriented and are accompanied by suites of hand specimens and practical exercises of the material covered. They focus on teaching practical skills within the framework of various ore deposit styles and are generally run in-house at company field sites or offices and commonly include a day applying the principles learned to the client’s drill core or prospect areas. Courses are often linked to consulting assignments in order to save on travel and logistical costs.
