For a few years i've got felt there has been a necessity for a unmarried, comprehen­ sive, reference ebook on exploration geology. quite a few textbooks can be found on topics akin to geophysical prospecting, exploration geochemistry, mining geology, photogeology and basic monetary geology, yet, for the geologist operating in mineral exploration, who doesn't require a specialist's wisdom, a common publication on explora­ tion concepts is required. Many undergraduate college classes are inclined to forget monetary geology and few care for the extra prac­ tical facets in any aspect. Graduate geologists embarking on a profession in fiscal geology or mineral exploration are accordingly frequently poorly built and feature to profit a substantial quantity 'on the job'. via offering a ebook that incorporates fabric that are present in many of the general texts including a couple of sensible elements to not be chanced on in different places, i am hoping that either fresh graduates and more matured exploration geologists will locate it an invaluable reference paintings and guide. additionally, scholars of monetary geology and group of workers operating in similar fields within the mining and mineral extraction in­ dustries will locate it informative. J. H. REEDMAN v Acknowledgements the writer wish to thank Dr ok. Fletcher, geochemist with the dep. of Geology, college of British Columbia, and Kari Savario, geophysicist with Finnish Technical reduction to Zambia, for studying the unique drafts and delivering confident feedback and suggestion at the chapters on geochemical and geophysical prospecting respectively.
