Opis predmeta: APPLIED MINERALOGY AND PETROLOGY
MAJOR GOALS:
Object of mining activities are minerals, ores, rocks and sediments which are exploited as metallic resources, industrial minerals, construction material or dimension stone.
Major goals of this course are:
- define main terminology in industrial and metallic use of minerals and rocks
- classify useful minerals within large groups of metallic and non-metallic resources based on their industrial applications
- classify useful rocks and sediments within natural or dimension stone, technical stone and construction material
- explain details of the extraction and processing for the studied minerals and rocks
- applied this knowledge to compose and defense independently seminar thesis

CONDITIONS:
Introduction to mineralogy and petrology - Pass
Competences
Students are required to
- define general terminology from basic mineralogy, systematic mineralogy, petrology of magmatic, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks
- give examples for each classification group of minerals and rocks
- recognize major crystalochemical, physical and chemical properties of the minerals
- be able to classify and compare different minerals based on their properties
- recognize rock types on the basis of their mineralogical composition and predict major physical and chemical properties of the rock

EXPECTED TEACHING OUTCOMES:
Students will be able to:
- define general terminology in ore deposits (mineralization and ore types)
- list major ore deposit types using suggested classification
- list examples of the major ore deposit types in Croatia
- recognize major industrial minerals or resources based on their physical, chemical and crystalochemical properties
- predict exploitation and processing phases for different types of the mineral resources as well as their uses
- write an overall seminar from assigned literature
