Great Basin Evolution and Metallogeny - DEStech Publications

This book 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.

The CD-ROM displays figures and illustrations in articles in full color along with a title screen and main menu screen. Each user can link to all papers from the Table of Contents and Author Index and also link to papers and front matter by using the global bookmarks which allow navigation of the entire CD-ROM from every article.
