Rocks and minerals revealed: An introductory course in geology


The School of Geosciences at the University of the Witwatersrand will be presenting an exciting and very popular 20-­week course on basic geology from February to July 2015. This is a great opportunity to find out more about how the Earth works. There is an economic focus to the course making it suitable for anyone involved in the minerals industry who would like to learn something about the terminology used. However, it is suitable for all interested beginners. The course is presented by a range of expert staff with many years of experience. During the course there will be hands‐on practical work on mineral and rock identification together with a look at some geological maps. A certificate of participation will be given at the end of the course. No examination is involved, only a self­‐evaluation practical test in the last week. A maximum of 45 participants can be accommodated so register early to avoid disappointment.

Course cost: R5000
