Geological Field Trips in the Area of the Ukrainian Shield
Dnipro University of Technology (Ukraine) organizes geological field trips in the frames of the educational geological practice in the Middle Dnipro and the Azov Sea areas. The practice is organized for students of geological and mining specialities. The purpose of the practice is to study geological processes in the field.
Also, we are experienced in providing field trainings for industrial geologists and other specialist.
A valuable benefit of the training grounds of the Dnipro University of Technology is the possibility to study numerous deposits of ores and other minerals. The most of the objects belong to the Ukrainian Shield’s Precambrian formation. Participants attend deposits of gold, iron ore, lithium ore, rare metals, ceramic pegmatite, building stone etc., including those not yet exploited.
The trip includes comfortable accommodation and cultural program.
