Gold: Its Geological Occurrence and Geographical Distribution

Nature volume 81, pages 3435 (08 July 1909) | Download Citation



DR. MACLAREN begins his preface with the remark that “the writer who would add one more treatise to the literature of the study of ore-deposits must needs show justification.” Any apology for the publication of his useful book is, however, quite unnecessary, for the increase by four times of the gold yield of the world during twenty years has been attended by a voluminous and scattered literature. Students of mining geology will be grateful to any author who undertakes the great labour of compiling a summary of recent work on gold and its distribution.
