Geology and Mineralogy
Geology and Mineralogy.
In the second year, the students have recitations, lectures and laboratory exercises, in the determination of a series of fifty-five well selected mineral species, with special reference to the ores of the metals and their associated gangues. These exercises are followed by lectures and recitations (based on Dana's Manual) on dynamical and historical geology. The lectures on Lithology, and on mineral veins and ore deposits, together with an account of the chief geological features and modes of occurrence in the principal mining districts, complete the course.
