About this book

The renowned authors present a modern, unified treatment of economic geology, the study of geologic characteristics and the genesis of ores in the earth's crust. Ore deposits are explored in relation to plate tectonics, petrology and isotope and fluid inclusion techniques. Understanding how ore-bearing rocks form, say Guilbert and Park, is fundamental to understanding the nature, origin and distribution of ore deposits themselves.

"[...] should be recommended reading for all students in this field of study."
- Mining Magazine

" [...] the photographs are quite extraordinary [...] this book is not only a most valuable help for experts [...] The Geology of Ore Deposits should not be missing in any library specializing in geo-sciences."
- Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
