Book Description

The World of Mineral Deposits: A Beginner’s Guide to Economic Geology (PDF) not only explains the most important deposit types; but also the processes involved in their formation. Magmatic; hydrothermal and sedimentary processes along with weathering and alteration are explained in the framework of plate tectonics and the history of the Earth. The chapter about fossil fuels contains unconventional deposits and the much-debated fracking. Other topics covered are mining; exploration and economic aspects like commodity prices.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook; The World of Mineral Deposits: A Beginner’s Guide to Economic Geology in PDF. No access codes are included.
