Geointro is a part of the international training programme "Mine water and mine waste management", organized by the SGU.
Geointro is a study platform on the topic of mining and the environment aimed to prepare the participants within the international training programme (ITP) "Mine water and mine waste management" for the training. Participants in the ITP come from different backgrounds and have different expertise. Environmental management of mines require a broad knowledge covering several subjects, from mining and geochemistry to social conflict and human rights. Geointro assists in overviewing the subject of mining and the environment to give the participants a general knowledge before the training.
Geointro is continuously developed by the Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) for the ITP. The material may however be used by anyone to learn more about mining and the environment. Do you want to know more about Geointro or the ITP? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
