Exploration for Platinum-Group Element Deposits book

Platinum-group elements have risen to prominence in recent years both as extremely valuable commodities and as sensitive geochemical tracers of processes in the mantle and crust of the Earth.

This text is designed to appeal both to the practising exploration geologist and to the academic. It should be accessible to any reader with a senior undergraduate education in geology.

The principal aim of this book and the short course is to bridge a gap between exploration geologists and academics. In keeping with the educational mandate of UNESCO, which has generously sponsored the activities of IGCP Project 479, our goal is to disseminate current knowledge of platinum group element ore genesis and exploration techniques to as wide an audience as possible worldwide. To further promote global dissemination of knowledge, the book will be available for free download from the MAC website.
