Mineral geoscience is all about Earth’s mineral resources—their nature, origin, distribution, discovery and uses. 

Geoscientists explore for metallic and non-metallic deposits and find environmentally safe ways to dispose of waste materials from mining.

The University of Adelaide is ranked in the top 75-100 in the world for Earth Sciences.

Our Bachelor of Science (Mineral Geoscience) prepares you for an interesting, well-paid and diverse career in the minerals and energy sector. You will:

  • get hands-on with plenty of field work and exposure to industry in this high-demand field
  • learn about mining, engineering and mineral resources, and environmental aspects of mine remediation
  • explore Earth's mineral resources - their nature, origin, distribution, discovery and uses
  • see rocks in their natural habitat, study the oceans and learn how to read history from the Earth
  • take integrated and extended geology, tectonics and geophysics courses.
Mineral geoscience graduates are in high demand. You might work in exploration, making the calls on where next to drill for diamonds. You could journey below the surface as an underground mine geologist. Perhaps you’ll work on solutions for repairing the environmental impacts of mining.
