First REEBAUX project workshop for students and project participants took place successfully in Dalmatia inland on October 14-15, 2019. The workshop was attended by master and PhD. students from the partner universities as well as from several non-partner universities of the ESEE region. Representatives of the partner institutions gave lectures in topics related to their expertise in bauxites, red mud and rare earth elements. The venue of the workshop was Ecological Station Vrlika in Ježević (under authority of the University of Zagreb – Faculty of Science). Along with the lectures the two-day workshop programme included visits to three bauxite sites: Vrace (bauxite deposit never exploited), Tošići-Dujići (closed large open-pit bauxite mining site) and Mamutovac (a bauxite deposit with a potential for future exploitation).
The 1st REEBAUX workshop will take place in Dalmatia inland, Croatia, on October 14-15, 2019 (starting and ending point is Zagreb; bus transportation to the workshop venue is provided by the organizer). The workshop is intended for master and PhD students from the partner and other ESEE countries, and it will offer in-class lectures on REE, regional geology and stratigraphy related to bauxite deposits, and importance of bauxite applications in industry. Along with the lectures, field trip to local bauxite deposits will be organized, with bauxite professionals on site to present bauxite occurrences, sampling methods and to work with students. The organizers will cover the expenses of the student attendance at the workshop (accommodation, meals, all transport costs), thus number of participants is limited.
