The programme begins with a theoretical part, three days of field visits to Cu-Co mines and one emerald mine. At the end of the course, participants will be asked to present a “return to work plan” to set themselves objectives for applying and implementing the knowledge acquired in their organisation (e.g., elaborate an exploration program in a region of interest of it Geological Survey).
