Ore Geology, 7.5 credits

About the education

The course focuses on the formation of hydrothermal ore deposits. After an introduction to ore deposits and the transport of metals in hydrothermal fluids, the lectures will cover 3 main topics; 1) magmatic hydrothermal ore deposits associated with convergent margins, 2) hydrothermal ore deposits associated with orogenesis and metamorphism, and 3) seafloor hydrothermal deposits associated with divergent margins. The third topic will be covered mainly during the fieldtrip to Cyprus. Lectures will be combined with lab classes that focus on identification of ore and alteration minerals.
