This book is an amazingly detailed exposition of gold concentration and extraction. Many books are long on the theory and very thin on the engineering issues involved. Other books are enhanced process diagrams and cookbooks and give little theory. This book is a treasure with a perfect blend of theory and the engineering process to utilize that theory.
Although I have a strong sciences background and 30 years of engineering experience my area is expertise is well outside of geology and process control chemistry. Therefore, a comprehensive view of the entire processing from geology to gold bar is a real treat.
One other item - trying to get this information on a paper by paper basis would be financially ruinous as well as maddening.

Very detailed and thorough. Written in such a way that even mining engineers could follow it (if one ever read it). And by that I just mean that it is not their field of expertise. How does one remove a review from Amazon?

Thank you for this!

This book contains a very valuable collection of information. Simple graphs and charts, and basically can be used as a guideline for most processing of ores.
