“This book tells how and where to look for ores, how to identify deposits of important metal ores, minerals and precious stones, and what one must know to find them. The popular presentation will make this book useful to the non-specialist as well, for whose benefit the process of the formation of rocks and minerals, the forms in which they occur in the earth’s crust, and the signs by which the presence of some particular mineral can be detected are briefly described. Special sections deal with various aspects of prospecting for iron, copper, tin, tungsten, nickel, manganese, aluminium, and uranium ores. As well as for gold, diamonds, graphite and micas.
This book presents in condensed form the vast practical experience that has been gained by Soviet geologists in prospecting for minerals in the Soviet Union and other countries.”
