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. Offering an overview of the methods and aims in mineral exploration and production, the book gives coverage of the geologic principles of ore deposits and the geomorphic environment. It 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 covered are current uses of computers in mineral exploration programs. Case histories are featured, along with a current references section and financial data.
