Economic Geology of the United States


    THIS volume embodies the elementary course of economic geology at Cornell University, where the author is assistant professor. Some knowledge of geology and mineralogy on the part of the student is presupposed, and the work deals exclusively with North American mineral deposits. At the same time North America is so preeminently the continent of mineral deposits, nearly all types and forms being represented within its vast mineral areas, that a treatise on American economic geology is nearly the same thing as a study of mineral deposits in general.
