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).
