Geochemical Interpretation Tools for Exploration and Mining Geologists: From A-horizon to Z-score

22nd May 2021 @ 8:00 am - 31st July 2021 @ 5:00 pm

This is a course endorsed by EFG.

The online course comprises approx. 11 hours of concise video lecture materials, which are subdivided into 12 study blocks. Each block requires to pass a short test, either in quiz or essay format, to successfully move on to the next block. A final exercise, comprising 40 independent study hours will comprise a geochemical targeting desktop study utilising a large public domain dataset, which allows you to put your newly acquired skills into practice and use GIS and ioGas software to generate regional exploration targets by employing a suite of univariate, multivariate and lithogeochemical mapping techniques. The online course is supported by up to 4h of live online, individual or group (based on demand) tutorial sessions with the course leader, Benedikt Steiner.

This online version provides an alternative to the classroom-based course and facilitates independent study in your own time, wherever you are based around the world. This format will be particularly useful to postgraduate students, young industry professionals and mid-level career geologists who intend to improve their skills in geochemical exploration techniques, but cannot attend classroom-based courses in person, or prefer to study the learning materials over the course of several weeks.

This course aims to: Graduate/ Project/ Senior Geologists in mining and mineral exploration. Project and Exploration Managers too.

The course registration and information can be found here: Course Page |


1 Provide an introduction to geochemical exploration methods, analytical and interpretation skills as well as a general overview of early and advanced stage mineral exploration workflows.
2 The participant will be able to gather original and other complex data from a variety of sources (library, internet and others), analyse and synthesise the data, and make reasonable deductions; and, have the ability to utilise a full range of computer-based learning resources as an autonomous learner.
3 The participant will be able to handle data used in mining and exploration to generate information for geological and general management.
