The objective of the school is to introduce innovative mineral exploration methods and techniques with special focus on exploration of hydrothermal ore deposits. Keynote lectures about magmatic-hydrothermal ore forming processes will be given by prof. Laurence Robb. The program is designed for earth science master students, primarily from the East-South-Eastern European (ESEE) region. Master students from field of mining engineering are also welcome.
Telkibánya is a well-known historical mining site of the Carpathian region, and the locality provides a good environment for field practice complementing the theoretical parts of the summer school.
The TIMREX project supports the participation of the students by a scholarship up to 500 € to cover the travel and subsistence costs. Eligibility for the scholarship will be defined by external evaluators based on the completed registration form.
