Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Using the concepts and practices of applied geology as its central theme, here is a balanced and comprehensive treatment of the geological, geochemical, geophysical, and economic elements of exploration and mining. Offers an overview of the methods and aims in mineral exploration and production and gives coverage of the geologic principles of ore deposits and the geomorphic environment. Deals with ``hard'' minerals and the nonfluid sources of materials and energy in the continental masses and in ocean basins. This edition has been expanded to include recent advances in applications of satellite imagery, lithogeochemical surveys, isotope geochemistry, and other developments in the field. Also covers current uses of computers in mineral exploration programs. Features case histories, a current references section, and financial data.

This book has been very useful to me. I have a small mine of my own and have used it extensively. I had a hard time locating a good book on the subject...I went through the University of Arizona library. It's a bit expensive, but if you use it, it's worth it.

An excellent all round book. I deal for those students in their final year of Bachelor's degree or studying for thier Masters in Economic/ Engineering or Mining Geology. Good Diagrams, easy to understand on the whole and and excellent reference book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a geologist and had used this book as a reference in the past. I am now retired and no longer had access to it so I purchased a used copy of the first edition. The newest edition is priced at over $300 dollars. The book I received was solid, a former Library book, with some highlighting and notes written in it. However, it was more than adequate for my needs. Service from the seller and Amazon was five star. I rated this 4 because, while a good and useful book, I don't think the content of the book rates 5.
