DEStech Publications, Inc. announces the publication of Great Basin Evolution and Metallogeny, edited by Roger Steininger and William Pennell. This two-volume set comprises over 60 original and fully refereed technical presentations focused on geological analysis and testing of rocks, ores, minerals and elements correlated with gold mineralization and mining in the Great Basin region of the United States.
Detailed geological data derived from advanced techniques is supplied for dozens of proven and currently explored mineral-rich areas in Nevada, California, Idaho, Utah, Washington and Alaska, as well as in Mexico and Chile. A wealth of analytic information, including full-color charts and maps, is presented on working gold, silver and copper mines opened or re-opened within the last 10 years, as well as on geological formations identified as promising for high-value future gold discoveries.
Written by industry, government, and university researchers, these two volumes provide a wide range of stratigraphic, lithographic, remote-sensing models and core sample analyses, especially of rocks and ores likely to host Carlin-type gold deposits. Original research is presented on geothermal, geochemical, photoluminescent, tectonic and trace element investigations of geological phenomena associated with epithermal gold mineralization. Chapters of the book are peer-reviewed versions of presentations originally delivered at a symposium organized by the Geological Society of Nevada.
Some of the highlights of the book include:
- Gold and precious metal mining and mineralization in the western United States
- Technical analyses of many new mines and high-potential reserves
- Exploration geology for gold, silver, copper, cobalt, molybdenum, and other metal deposits
- Two-volume book set with full-text searchable CD-ROM
