All laboratory macroscopic procedures are device-free and at the loop and microscope level. The lithology laboratory based on the syllabus is a purely educational lab and its services are for undergraduate students of mining exploration and mining exploitation. The identification of rocks and minerals is based on color, hardness, cleavage, texture and structure, naming, classification, and crystallization system. Other non-educational services carried out with the help of a thin section, mineralogy, x-ray and geochemistry laboratories.

Laboratory Research Activities
  • Identification and evaluation of the various rocks in terms of type, quality and structure initially and after quantitative (chemical) and qualitative (mineral) analysis
Laboratory Equipment
  • Mineral and rock samples: Training the mineral samples and rocks consisting of different minerals
  • Spatial crystal network: Training the crystallization system of minerals and crystallography
