Ore Forming Processes

  • 7.5 credits

This course will investigate the processes through which ore deposits form, focusing specifically on the formation of hydrothermal ore deposits.

After an introduction to ore deposits and the transport of metals in hydrothermal fluids, the course focuses on different hydrothermal ore-forming systems including those associated with magmatism, metamorphism and sedimentary processes. The course will have a theoretical moment and a practical moment that involves lab or field study.

  • Course literature

    Note that the course literature can be changed up to two months before the start of the course.
