Additional Book Details

The mineral exploration and mining industry is a dynamic, diverse and wealth-building sector in which a wide range of people are involved professionally or personally. At the same time, it is an industry based on applied science and technology with a lexicon not widely understood by many of these participants. This book bridges that gap. Mineral Exploration and Mining Essentials is an indispensable primer for anyone working, studying or interested in geology and the mineral exploration and mining industry but who does not have a background in the sector.
