This 5-day course is designed for exploration and mining geologists (a group of a minimum 10 participants is required).

It can be offered as in-company training. Or your organisation can host the training course, targeting participants from different companies and institutes in your region.

Unlike the online version, this course includes a mini-project exercise where participants work with multiple datasets from different parts of the world. From downloading a dataset to obtaining a mineral map proxy, all with real-time supervision by one of our experts.
