About this book

In June 1965, a small group of European economic geologists gathered in Heidelberg, Germany, at the invitation of Professor G. C. Amstutz and decided to establish the Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits (SGA) and to start a journal to be called Mineralium Deposita. The first issue of the journal came out in May 1966, and has now matured to a leading journal in economic geology The first Biennial SGA Meeting was held successfully in Nancy, France, in 1991, with subsequent meetings in Grenada (Spain; 1993), Prague (Czech Republic; 1995), Turku (Finland; 1997), London (United Kingdom; 1999), Krakov (Poland; 2001) and Athens (Greece; 2003). In 2002, th the SGA Council decided that its 8 Biennial Meeting in 2005 should be held in Beijing, China, making this the first Biennial Meeting to be convened outside - th rope. Significantly, 2005 also marks the 40 anniversary of the SGA. The decision to host this year’s premier meeting in Beijing reflects the Society’s successful transition from its traditional European focus to a truly global organization, with 24% of SGA members situated in North America, 13% in Australia and Oceania, and 5% in Asia. Over the last 27 years China has made dramatic progress towards political and economic reform, and opening the nation to the outside world. China’s rapid e- nomic development demands increasing amounts of minerals, fuels and materials, and this is currently a major driver for the global economic markets.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This set of Proceedings of the 8th Biennial SGA Meeting held in Beijing, China, in August 2005, presents three hundred and 89 synopses … . anyone engaged in ore/metal research and exploration would wish to have access to the information: every geology library must have a set of these fine publications. … The two-volume set by Mao and Bierstein is making a further contribution to our invaluable global data base." (Karl Wolf, The Australian Geologist Newsletter, Issue 139, June, 2006)

"This two-volume book contains peer-reviewed short articles for papers presented at the Eighth Biennial SGA Meeting … . The editors have organized the proceedings into 14 sessions that include numerous deposit- and district-specific descriptions for many sites in China … . will be of interest to those readers who seek to broaden their understanding of economic geology and gain knowledge of the geology, metallogeny and mineral deposits of China." (Steve L. Garwin, Economic Geology, Vol. 101, 2006)
