About this book

The book introduces essential concept of mineral exploration, mine evaluation and resource assessment of the discovered mineral deposit to students, beginners and professionals. The book is divided into nine chapters which will help the readers to incorporate the concepts of search for mineral deposits and understand the chances of success. The book discusses the fundamental details like composition of earth and mineral resources, formation of rock and mineral deposits, and the attempt to search for ore deposits to advance applications of remote sensing in mineral exploration. It also covers the details on how to conduct system of survey, evaluation, and how to arrive at a decision to open and carryout further exploration in the operating mine. The book shall be of great interest to geologists and mining community.

He has worked in Europe and North America in well-several known institutions and participated in oceanographic expeditions.

Professor Roonwal has made significant contribution in land and marine geology which includes exploration assessment and eventually mining and environmental sustainability of land and sea-floor mineral deposits such as volcanogenic massive sulfides which contain valuable metals such as zinc, copper and associated gold and platinum. He also authored books on land and sea-floor mineral resources. His books such as: Mining and Environmental Sustainability (2014), Iron Ore Deposits and Banded Iron Formation of India (2012), The Story of Science from Antiquity to the Present (Geology Section)(2010), The Indian Ocean Exploitable Mineral and Petroleum Resources and edited Books entitled “India’s Exclusive Economic zone” (with Dr. S.Z. Qasim), Living Resources of India’s Exclusive Economic Zone” (with Dr. S.Z. Qasim) and Mineral Resources and Development (2005)(Roonwal et. al.).
