To provide an experimental foundation for the theoretical concepts introduced in the lectures. It is important that students have an opportunity to verify some of the ideas for themselves.
For understanding about the role of experimental work in establishing scientific knowledge in particular the roles of communication and replication of experimental work in the acceptance of knowledge by the scientific community.
|Geology lab gives the knowledge of physical and chemical properties of various minerals and rocks. We introduce the identification and interpretation of rocks and minerals . The major part of Geology is associated with the study of Fundamentals of geology .|
Mine Surveying Lab
|The Surveying Lab is equipped with the instruments and tools that students use throughout the surveying course. Students learn techniques for gathering field data with both traditional and modern instruments and demonstrate their proficiency on weekly lab exercises and a comprehensive semester project and final exam.|
Mineral Processing Lab
|Mineral Processing Lab provides vital knowledge on sustainable processing of ores and minerals as well as recovery of valuable components from ore. At the Mineral Processing Laboratory, ores and mineral based raw materials are crushed and ground in order to liberate the individual phases. These particles can then be separated to recover valuable minerals, remove contaminating components or divide the material into different size fractions. The separation is based on differences in the physical and chemical properties of the particles, and could be based on density, magnetism, surface chemistry, particle size, mechanical strength, electrical conductivity or colour. The equipment consists of modular units, which allow unit operations to be run either separately or combined in continuous circuits. The laboratory can also produce user specified micronized mineral products.|
