Teaching

Units currently taught:

  • Earth Materials (ERB205); Unit Coordinator: Earth Materials comprises the study of minerals and rocks which form the solid Earth. The study of Earth Materials is essential for understanding the structure and composition of the earth and the detailed processes of the rock cycle. Earth Materials forms the basis for petrology (the study of the genesis of rocks) and geochemistry.
  • Earth's Mineral Resources (ERB306); Unit Coordinator: Australia's wealth and future economic growth depend largely on its natural resources. A mineral resource represents an enrichment of an element or mineral that can be mined, processed and rehabilitated with financial and social benefit. The natural enrichment of an element or mineral to the levels of a mineral resource requires specific and complex interplay of a variety of geological processes. Thus, mineral resource exploration, delineation and extraction require skilled application of basic geological concepts and an appreciation of social implications.
  • Grand Challenges (SEB104): Resources and the Green Shift; Coordinator: Wide agreement amongst governments that we need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels for energy requires more metals, especially copper, nickel and iron, as well as the rare critical metals, such as Li, Nd, In and REEs. This unit covers the basics of how these types of mineral deposits form, and explores potential future sources for these metals, including recycling and asteroid mining.
