2. Pre-Requisites

It is a subject without established requirements, but it would be advisable for the student to have passed the subjects related to geology, mining research, mineral deposits, etc.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The mining technique of the boreholes is the essence of the evidence of the existence of a specific mining deposit, as well as of the knowledge of any underground material of interest for the material execution of a civil work, which makes it an essential subject to complete the training of a graduate in Mining Technology Engineering. It is also a subject that is intimately related to others in the degree, especially those of a geological mining nature, providing clear support to the knowledge of these.

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The ordinary evaluation of the subject will include: the value obtained in the final test (this test will consist of a series of exercises whose subject matter will cover most of the aspects of the subject, establishing the evaluation scales for each question), the work and practices developed throughout the course and participation with class participation. For those students who have not submitted their work and class practices, a series of questions related to these subjects will be included in the final test, with a total score of 25% of the final grade of the test.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Evaluation criteria not defined

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The extraordinary evaluation of the subject will include: the value obtained in the final test (this test will consist of a series of exercises whose subject matter will try to cover most of the aspects of the subject, establishing the evaluation scales in each question), the work and practices developed throughout the course and participation with class participation. For those students who have not submitted their work and class practices, a series of questions related to these subjects will be included in the final test, with a total score of 25% of the final grade of the test.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The evaluation of the special call for completion of the course will include: the value obtained in the final test (this test will consist of a series of exercises whose subject matter will try to cover most of the aspects of the subject, establishing the evaluation scales in each question), the work and practices developed throughout the course and participation with use in class.
