This course has the objective to offer information relevant to students interested in careers in the mineral resource sector and professionals in activities related to the mineral exploration and mining sectors, with a focus on metallic resources such as gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead, molybdenum, uranium, and gemstones such as diamonds.

The course provides an overview of the economics of the mineral sector, including the current state of the sector, a review of the major types of mineral deposits for metals and gemstones, and a review of the main exploration techniques currently used in mineral exploration. In addition, the course addresses topics related to the management, business and regulatory aspects of mineral exploration projects, including the corporate social responsibility of companies involved in exploration and mining. The course discusses examples of various aspects related to mineral projects from Colombia and Latin America, as well as other parts of the world.

The course integrates numerous aspects from different disciplines / domains (e.g. mineral economics, Economic Geology, project management, regulatory aspects) that need to be understood by professionals and managers of mineral exploration and development companies, as well as by investors in such companies and by investment advisors.

The content of the course is of interest to:
Geology / Geoscience / Earth Science graduates and students pursuing pre- and post-graduate studies, who contemplate careers in the mineral and mining industries; Employees of companies involved in the mineral resource sector (e.g. exploration and mining companies, geophysical companies, drilling companies, assay laboratories), both at the technical and management levels, who would like to acquire / refresh knowledge on the multiple and complex aspects that need to be considered for the proper execution of mineral exploration projects; Government professionals involved in the development of policies and regulations for the mineral sector in Colombia and in the acquisition of background geoscientific data on the Colombian territory, who would like to understand the needs and constraints of the mineral exploration and development companies; Potential investors who contemplate investments in exploration and mining companies; Financial analysts interested in providing informed advice regarding investments in Mineral Exploration and Mining.
