Field trips to local deposits and mineral occurrences will be organized during the semester. Depending on weather and availability, we will visit different places close to Karlsruhe. Students have to deliver a field report for every day.

The students know how to apply their theoretical knowledge in the field. They make interpretations at various scales (thin
section, sample, outcrop, deposit, district). They know, how to make meaningful sketches and how to present their observations
and interpretation in written and oral formats. They are able to analyze, interpret and discuss their data in conjunction with
published ore deposit models and can decide on the style of mineralization and the way of mineral exploration.


Field trips will be organized during the semester. Dates will be discussed during the related courses in the same module.
