Systematically covers hydrothermal and sedimentary metallogenic environments and the gamut of mineral deposit types. Also relates metallogeny to global tectonics.
This book undoubtedly succeeds in addressing the intrinsic complexities that surround the formation of ore deposits in any environmental setting. It also demonstrates that ore-forming processes are integrally linked to the various wonders of the earth system, and paves the ground on which economic geology can find its deserved place in modern earth-science curricula, irrespective of the periodic declines of interest in ore dposit research from a purely commercial viewpoint...I can only recommend this textbook to all those interested, whether from the academic world or from the industry, in the challenges of mineral deposits and their origins. Harilaos Tsikos, University of Aberdeen, Geofluids, May 2004 "Here at last is a first-class senior undergraduate-postgraduate texbook focused on the spectrum of geological processes involved in the genesis of ore deposits...No question whatever, Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes succeeds in its principal stated purpose, that being "...to provide a better understanding of the processes as well as the nature and origin, of mineral occurrences and how they fit into the Earth sytem." The Canadian Mineralogist, March 2005 "The book brings a fresh new look to an old topic; it is balanced as to coverage, it is well and engagingly written, it is up to date, and it is global in coverage. I recommend the volume." American Mineralogist, January 2005 "This is an excellent book ... The text of the book is very well-written. The author describes lucidly (and patiently) all important features of specific processes, so that the reader can easily follow his arguments." Miner Deposita
