Dr. Kyle's diverse research interests center on mineral resource formation as an integral aspect of the development of the host geologic environment. Rich's major interests are in "strata-controlled" metal and industrial mineral deposits ranging from low-temperature sedimentary basins to volcanic and plutonic environments. He has long recognized the importance of field experience to complement the traditional classroom education and offers students the opportunity to participate in international field work in mineral resources geology.
