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.

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.

Rezensionen
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)
` In my opinion the book is unique, well done and should be a handbook for mining geologists. It so reflects my personal opinions about mineral exploration that I am probably too prejudicial to be a "fair" reviewer. This book should be a reference in all geological libraries, for students in economic geology and for all economic geologists. '
Paul Eimonn, Commonwealth International Inc, Texas. Pre-publication reviewer for Chapman & Hall, 1996
` With this book, Roger Marjoribanks has presented the extractive metals industry with a rare gift: a truly practical and approachable handbook that addresses the daily concerns of the exploration geologist... The open style of writing and Marjoribanks' effective hand-drawn illustrations make the book both approachable and readable... Perhaps of greatest value are the numerous practical tips for efficiently performing routing geological observations and measurements, which are based on the authors' extensive experience as a consulting geologist.
Four Appendices are provided, and these include some of the most useful information in the book (no, you can't stop reading at page 88 - the Appendices are a gold mine!).
I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone embarking on a career in this field! '
Jeremy Richards, Economic Geology, 92 (1997)
` First the recommendation: buy it. For any geologist who is involved in exploration, this book will save you time and money. All exploration managers should buy a copy each for the exploration geologists on their staff, and sit them down to read it.
Into his 128 pages, Marjoribanks packs a great amount of important practical knowledge.... Marjoribanks states that the book was written to be "a practical field manual to be used by geologists engaged in mineral exploration" and "a text and reference for students in Applied Geology courses of universities and colleges". He has succeeded in both aims... Chapter 2, "Geological Mapping in Exploration", contains some of the most important material in the book...Chapter 4, "Mineral Exploration Drilling", is a winner.
Finally, the reprise. For the practicing or aspiring geologist; seriously consider buying this book (or convince your manager to buy you one) because it is useful and practical, and will save you time and money. '
Chris Mawer, The Australian Geologist (TAG), 107, (June 1998)
` This book will be an invaluable reference to newly graduated geologists in the process of converting academic, theoretical knowledge to practical use in mineral exploration. '
Australian Mineral Foundation Informative Book Review Series No. 3021, AMF Reviews 24:10 (October 1997)
` This book deserves a warm welcome and wide readership. '
