About this book

Proceedings of the Eighth Biennial SGA Meeting, Beijing, China, 18 - 21 August 2005.

The proceedings volume (incl. CD-ROM) is a compilation of approximately 400 extended abstracts (up to 4 pages long) of presentations given at the 8th Biennial SGA Meeting. The papers are grouped according to the thematic sessions within which they were presented, including Tectonics, lithospheric, and deep mantle controls on global metallogenic provinces and giant ore deposits; Base and precious metal mineralization in sediments during basin evolution; Metallogeny and exploration of uranium deposits; Magmas and base-metal ore deposits; Epigenetic gold systems; Submarine ore systems and ancient analogues; Understanding ore systems though precise geochronology, isotope tracing and microgeochemistry; Geology and economics of non-metallic resources; Conceptual targeting of mineral deposits. Due to the meeting being held in Beijing, the conference and proceedings volume also feature thematic sessions that focus on specific regions throughout Asia, such as Mesozoic to recent geodynamics and metallogeny of eastern Asia; Metallogeny of the Tethys-Himalayan Orogen; Geodynamics and metallogeny of the Altaid Orogen; and Exploration, Discovery, and Mine Developments in China. As such, the volume represents a comprehensive summary of cutting-edge developments across a wide range of subject matters that are of extreme relevance to the global research, mining and exploration community.

Media reviews

From the reviews:

"This set of Proceedings of the 8th Biennial SGA Meeting held in Beijing, China, in August 2005, presents three hundred and 89 synopses a ] . anyone engaged in ore/metal research and exploration would wish to have access to the information: every geology library must have a set of these fine publications. a ] The two-volume set by Mao and Bierstein is making a further contribution to our invaluable global data base." (Karl Wolf, The Australian Geologist Newsletter, Issue 139, June, 2006)

"This two-volume book contains peer-reviewed short articles for papers presented at the Eighth Biennial SGA Meeting a ] . The editors have organized the proceedings into 14 sessions that include numerous deposit- and district-specific descriptions for many sites in China a ] . will be of interest to those readers who seek to broaden their understanding of economic geology and gain knowledge of the geology, metallogeny and mineral deposits of China." (Steve L. Garwin, Economic Geology, Vol. 101, 2006)
