Mineral Deposits

Nature volume 134, pages 235236 (18 August 1934) | Download Citation



IN the preface of this book, the author states that miners are but little concerned with the genesis of mineral deposits, and that as the book is intended for use by miners, he has dealt in only the most perfunctory fashion with the mode of formation of mineral deposits. In chaps, ii to x, however, which make up the greater part of the book, deposits are classified according to their mode of origin, a procedure which requires that the reader should have some knowledge of the formation of rocks.
