Content

Following a short description of the Earth and some important definitions such as ‘What is a mineral’, we will review the different types of rock which form the ‘Rock Cycle’. We will focus on the formation of these rocks in order to understand their origin. Finally, we will take a look at the mineral extraction process from prospection through to mining, processing and land rehabilitation.
