The University of Exeter Penryn Campus will be hosting a free “Mining 101” a course designed to introduce you to the mining life cycle and gain a broad understanding of the mining industry.
The course will be delivered by a team of academics from Camborne School of Mines who are now based at the Penryn Campus.
The exciting new course will be delivered over a period of twelve weeks using online lectures, PowerPoint presentations, documents and reference material in pdf format, mp3 podcasts, videos, e-tivities, discussion boards; and through face to face teaching, and includes three half day campus based study sessions.
This will be an excellent tool for those interested in going into the expanding mining field or simply learning more about the industry which shaped Cornwall’s landscape.
Given the current developments in the resumption of Cornish mining it would be a brilliant opportunity to understand the industry. The course will start on July 16th and continue until the 5th of October.
