Summary

As it has grown in length and level through sucessive edtions, the same author's Introduction to Ore Geology (now Ore Geology and Industrial Minerals) has left behind its original audience - first and second year students. This new textbook is designed to fill that niche - being written and designed specifically for introductory courses. Introduction to Economic Geology covers, oil, coal, water and nuclear fuels as well as economically important ores and bulk minerals. In keeping with current concerns and constraints, particular attention is paid to the impact of mining and drilling on the environment.

  • Unlike the earlier generation of economic geology texts, gives dueweight to the environmental impact of mining and drilling.
  • length and level suitable for an introductory course.
  • Examples drawn from a broad geographical range.
  • Bullet point chapter summaries.
  • 'Asides' on history, legislation, etc in 'boxes'.
  • Son of a proven upper-level text, Evans's Ore Geology and Industrial Minerals, now in its third edition.
