Description - Introduction to Mineral Exploration by Charles Moon
This new, updated edition of Introduction to Mineral Exploration provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of mineral exploration. Successful mineral exploration requires excellence in geology as well as integration with a range of other scientific, engineering, and financial techniques. This book covers not only the nature of mineral exploration but also considers other factors essential to successful exploration, from target evaluation to feasibility studies for extraction and production. Six detailed case studies, selected for the range of different problems and considerations they present to the mineral explorationist, are also included. This second edition is updated to include new chapters on handling mineral exploration data and a new case study on the exploration for diamonds. Introduction to Mineral Exploration is essential reading for upper level undergraduates studying ore geology, mineral exploration, mining geology, coal exploration, and industrial minerals, as well as professional geologists.
