Der Freiberger Kalibreurstag wurde vom Internationalen Kalibrierzentrum des Instituts für Metallformung als jährliche Weiterbildungsveranstaltung rund um das Thema der Herstellung von Langprodukten ins Leben gerufen. Hier wird jeweils zu einem ausgewählten Schwerpunktthema ein Mix aus Grundlagenwissen, praktischem Können und einem Überblicksvortrag zum gegebenen Thema angeboten. In diesem Jahr beschäftigt sich der Workshop mit der praktischen Auslegung von Streckkaliberreihen.


The exploration, evaluation, valuation and reporting of mineral deposits is a process shaped by local and global economic, social and political variables, forces and actors rather than only by technology and the geology, metallogeny, physical and chemical properties of ores and mineral deposits.

Geochemical exploration has evolved over the past 30 years from traditionally focused (mineral) resource identification to a multi-element, multi-media toolbox.


The European Union (EU) is one of the major trading partners of Nigeria. Solid minerals raw materials are critical to the EU industrial sector and economy. However, some factors, which include increased demand by emerging economies, shift in trade policies, inadequate supply and increasing demand by the producing countries amongst others, are limiting accessibility to these raw materials. Consequently, the EU industries need to explore new sources of mineral raw materials to mitigate the risk of non-availability and ensure sustainable operations. The data on Nigeria’s solid mineral raw materials sector will assist raw materials supply chain managers, prospective investors and researchers with information on availability, quantity, quality, sustainable supply and government policies in the mineral raw materials sector to plan their operations and make sound business decisions.


P5 stands for People, Planet, Profit, Process and Product. The P5 Impact Analysis is a tool that can be utilized to assess and/or compare options for various project components, to facilitate making sustainability-informed decisions and recommendations for the best possible outcomes of a project, aligned with the 5Ps.
