On 20-27 October 2019, representatives of the Department of Environmental Protection and Deposit Management of the State Mining Authority participated in field workshops devoted to geological structure of the Ukrainian Crystalline Shield. The workshops were organised by the Faculty of Geology of the Dnipro University of Technology. Participants of the workshops in Dnipro had the opportunity to learn about the history of the university, its individual departments, as well as to visit the Mineralogical Museum and the National Historical Museum. Moreover, as part of practical training, they explored the FREEEXPO Poltava Iron Ore Combine, pegmatite, granite and granodiorite pits in the villages: Jelicyjewka, Shevchenkova and Andvirka in the area of the Sea of Azov, outcrops of gold-bearing structures in metamorphic rocks near the village of Kruta, outcrops of granitoid rocks in Zaporozhye.
The participation of Polish representatives contributed to the exchange of professional experience between geologists from Poland and Ukraine. It also provided an opportunity to become acquainted with the lithological formation and stratigraphy of granite layers of the Ukrainian Shield and with the rock raw materials extracted there.
