This intensive 8-day (four 2-day module) course will explore the fundamentals of ore-forming fluids in hydrothermal systems, including practical aspects of ore element geochemistry, ore mineral assemblages, water-rock interactions, and the tools to analyze them. The course will provide an introduction to concepts that are critical to understanding hydrothermal mineralization and exploring for a variety of deposit types in both continental and submarine environments. We will examine mineral stabilities and controls on metal solubility in hydrothermal systems, P-T-pH-redox conditions and their importance in ore formation, controls on water-rock interaction and the integration of basic field and laboratory analyses to unravel processes of ore formation. Leading experts in the field will provide participants with a practical understanding of the links between geology, mineralogy and geochemistry of a variety of hydrothermal systems from drill core to the laboratory and back. The course is open to professionals in industry and graduate students from any university. Industry participants may receive credit toward professional training requirements. Graduate students may be eligible for credit toward their degree programs
