Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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

Reviews provided by Syndetics


An outstanding book. Based on Charles F. Park Jr. and Roy A. MacDiarmid's widely adopted textbook Ore Deposits (3rd ed., 1975; 2nd ed., CH, Jan '71), it is a thoroughly rewritten and up-to-date presentation of the fundamental characteristics of mineral deposits. Guilbert (Arizona) and Park (Stanford) are widely recognized in the field of economic geology. Their book is well organized and well written. With emphasis on the geochemical and physical characteristics of ore deposits, it treats theories of ore deposition, the ore-bearing fluids, mineralogical associations and zoning patterns, and the occurrence of deposits in specific geologic environments. A highly valuable aspect is the provision of descriptions for the mining districts taken as examples of deposits associated with processes of igneous intrusion, sedimentation, weathering, and metaphorism. A chapter on metallogenic provinces, epochs, and plate tectonics relates the specific types of ore deposits to the broader dynamics of earth history. Illustrations are numerous, clear, and appropriate. Each chapter is followed by an extensive bibliography, and there is a complete index. Recommended as a reference for all academic libraries serving programs in geology.-W.C. Peters, University of Arizona
