Summary:
"Metallogeny, the study of mineral deposit genesis, is a science that originated in France in the early 20th century, which is not surprising when one considers that today the French-speaking countries make a significant contribution to the production of a host of substances.

Abstract:

"Metallogeny, the study of mineral deposit genesis, is a science that originated in France in the early 20th century, which is not surprising when one considers that today the French-speaking countries make a significant contribution to the production of a host of substances. Written by two experts in the field, the Geology of Mineral Resources provides an updated review of our knowledge, although biased towards its practical application in mineral exploration. Each environment is described in terms of its geology and its deposit types, along with their economics, their genesis and relevant exploration techniques."--pub. desc.
