About this book

This practical step-by-step guide describes the key geological field techniques needed by today's exploration geologists involved in the search for metallic deposits. The techniques described are fundamental to the collection, storage and presentation of geological data and their use to locate ore. This book explains the various tasks which the exploration geologist is asked to perform in the sequence in which they might be employed in an actual exploration project. Hints and tips are give. The steps are illustrated with numerous examples drawn from real projects on which the author has worked. The book emphasizes traditional skills and shows how they can be combined effectively with modern technological approaches.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This book covers most of the skills needed to redress this situation by acting as a practical field manual from the initial stage of mapping a potential resource, through to drilling and core logging and finishing with an overview of GIS and exploration databases. … the text is aimed mainly at explorationalists in Australia and North America … .” (Micky Allen, iom3.org, January, 2011)

“Marjoribanks wrote this slim but thoroughly informative volume … as a ‘practical field manual for geologists engaged in mineral exploration.’ … The 10-chapter book begins with a general discussion of exploration and geological mapping in mineral exploration. … This new edition includes three more chapters than the 1997 edition, an expanded appendix section, and ample references. Summing Up: Recommended. Libraries serving upper-division undergraduate and graduate students in applied earth science.” (W. C. Peters, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)
