About this book

This well-illustrated book aims to enhance observations and understanding of structural features and proximity-indicator minerals, critical in exploration. The book provides a unique blending of different content on observational and critical aspects of data acquisition, geological, structural, tectonic set-up, mineral deposit types, geophysical framework, and proximity indicator minerals. Combining these topics led to a comprehensive understanding to facilitate mineral targeting and exploration in green- and brown-field terrains. Besides field photographs, the write-up is lavishly supplemented with relevant geological and geophysical maps, tables, and case stories in field geology, making it useful for a much larger section of the geoscientific community professional geologists and geophysicists, students, teachers, and also decision-makers in geo-surveys and exploration.  


About the authors

Prakash R. Golani did M.Sc. (1978) and received a Ph.D. (Geology) on Structural Geology and Stratigraphy in 1982. He joined the Geological Survey of India (GSI) in 1981. He worked as Field Geologist for carrying out mapping, mineral exploration, and metallogenic studies on Precambrian belts till 2009 that includes five-year stints each in Airborne Mineral Survey & Exploration and as Faculty in Training Institute of GSI. He served as National Convener of the IGCP-502 Project on VMS Deposits (2005–2009). He has been a nodal person for developing the National Centre for Mineral Targeting and GSI-Geoscience Australian project ‘Uncover.’ Besides, he has been a member of national-level expert committees on REE and Strategic Minerals for India. While heading Training Institute, Dr. Golani also served as the first Technical Chair of the National Mineral Exploration Trust (India, 2015–2017). He has been a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Geological Society of India (2012–2018) and Geoscience Journal (GSI). He received the National Mineral Award in the field of Geochemistry applied to metallogeny in 1992.
