Structural Geology Course in West Africa

Jun 05, 2017


The Structural Geology Training course which is part of the WAXI training programme was held in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast, from the 15 to 19 May 2017 (back to basics) and on the Newmont Akyem mine site in Ghana from the 22 to 26 May 2017 (advanced).

Our experience trainers, Nicolas Thebaud and Quentin Masurel, presented, in the first course, the fundamental knowledge on applied structural geology in a dynamic manner with and emphasis on problem-solving activities, with field trips to practice structural mapping.
In the second course they focused on techniques and best practise for open pit mapping, structural logging of drill core and hands-on practice with time spent in the open pit and at the core yard.

A total of 45 participants, all showing a lot of enthusiasm, are now equipped with new knowledge in applied structural geology. They all made the promise to sharpen their skills with experience and continuous practise in the filed.

Good news, more training opportunities are coming up later this year !
