Mineralogy expert witnesses will have strong scientific backgrounds, as mineralogy refers to the study of minerals, which encompasses numerous details and areas of research. Mineralogy expert consulting provides insightful information for cases involving such issues as geology, geological petrography, drainage, water intrusion, and geochemistry, among other related disciplines, each of which becomes highly relevant in the event of a lawsuit pertaining to mineralogy.
Since minerals are found in such varied locations involving numerous types of environments, mineralogy experts are often skilled with oceanography, archaeology, and other areas of study that are somehow related and affected by the presence of minerals. Other mineralogy expert witnesses have a particular focus in how minerals are combined to create other types of elements and materials, such as glass and ceramics, among numerous other types of materials used for varying purposes.
Mineralogy experts are also often experienced with different branches of engineering involving various types of minerals. Geotechnical engineering, for instance, is a type of civil engineering specializing on how construction projects are affected by minerals and rocks, which sometimes causes eroding, natural slopes, or other types of natural occurrences that would impact the structure in question. Soil engineering would also involve mineralogy, since the discipline is focused on how the ground would affect construction projects, including the many minerals found within the earth.
