The Mineralogical Association of Canada was among the first organizations to support a short course volume on uranium, which was presented as its third short course volume in 1978 entitled Uranium Deposits: Their Mineralogy and Origin and edited by M.M. Kimberley. This proved to be the most popular short course volume for MAC, and has been used in both undergraduate and graduate courses on mineral deposits geology and by the exploration industry… this volume, which expands upon Kimberley’s, considers models for different types of uranium deposits and the mechanisms that control their genesis, relating source, transport, deposition, and preservation, and how these can be used to refine strategies for uranium exploration.
