Ore Forming Processes

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 reports

    Course evaluations allow the possibility to affect and take responsibility for your own learning and gives important information for our work with pedagogical development.

    It's important that all students complete the course evaluations after each course, it gives the Department the opportunity to improve the courses' quality.

    The course evaluation is composed of a number of questions and specific questions for each course. If you, as a student, want to contribute with more course specific questions you may send them to studies@geo.su.se.

    If you haven't received the course evaluation for your finished course, or if you have other questions regarding course evaluations at IGV please contact studies@geo.su.se.

    Course evaluation = student's review of the course
    Course report = course leader's reflections about the review
