EMerald – Master in Georesources Engineering

EIT RawMaterials
Campus 2 years September 2018 Germany Berlin Freiberg

EMerald integrates knowledge of mineral/metal resources and modern engineering technologies to meet this challenge. This two-year Master programme draws from four top-level engineering schools with a long tradition in the fields of geology, geo-modeling and mineral processing. [+]

The Challenge

The future and sustainability of our societies are critically linked to the exploitation of primary raw materials. The need for innovation in this sector is considered as new deposits will be more and more difficult to process, due to their lower quality and the increasing regulations to minimize their impacts on the environment. Such innovations are only possible if a deep understanding of the geology is integrated throughout the whole mine lifecycle, from mining to site rehabilitation. Innovation requires a geometallurgical approach.

Geometallurgy aims at integrating geological characteristics into new resource-efficiency based models. It requires a deep understanding of geology and advanced mineral processing techniques, expertise in geo-modeling, knowledge of state-of-the-art monitoring tools, and an acute awareness of the environmental, economic and societal issues in mining....
