After completion of the course students should have knowledge of the occurrence of the most important magmatic ore deposits, including PGE- Ni-Cu, Cr, V-Ti, apatite, and diamond deposits. Students are familiar with the geology, and can comprehend the petrogenesis, of the main Finnish and global magmatic mineral deposits, including the deposits at Kemi (Cr), Portimo and Penikat (PGE), and Kevitsa (Ni-Cu-PGE), Mustavaara (Fe-Ti-V) and Otanmäki (Fe-Ti-V) as well as global deposits including the Bushveld (PGE, Cr, V), Pechenga (Ni), Monchegorsk (PGE), Noril’sk (Ni-Cu-PGE), Sudbury (Ni-Cu-PGE), Kambalda (Ni), Jinchuan (Ni-Cu-PGE) and Panzhihua (Fe-Ti-V). Students will thus have gained an improved capability to contribute to exploration for magmatic ore deposits in Finland.
