Handbook of Gold Exploration and Evaluation (Woodhead by Eoin Macdonald

By Eoin Macdonald

Designed for geologists and engineers engaged particularly within the look for gold deposits of all kinds and as a reference for teachers in greater colleges of studying, guide of gold exploration and evaluate offers rules and distinct motives that underpin the right kind interpretation of daily event within the box. difficulties are addressed in regards to the research, interpretation and figuring out of the overall framework in which either basic and secondary gold assets are explored, built and exploited.

Handbook of gold exploration and review covers a finished variety of subject matters together with the character and heritage of gold, geology of gold ore deposits, gold deposition within the weathering atmosphere, sedimentation and detrital gold, gold exploration, lateritic and placer gold sampling, mine making plans and guidance for shallow deposits, metallurgical techniques and layout, and assessment, possibility and feasibility.

  • Covers the character and background of gold
  • Addresses issues of regard to the framework within which gold assets are explored, constructed and exploited
  • Discusses themes together with the geology of gold ore deposits, metallurgical tactics and layout, assessment, danger and feasibility
