The Australian Ore Deposits monograph is a comprehensive data source of the great mineral resources and exploration successes of our vibrant mining industry. More than 170 papers have been included in the volume.
The layout of the monograph is geological and arranged by major provinces. Overview papers summarise regional geology and mineralisation for the different geological provinces, and these are followed by numerous descriptions of existing mines. Papers are descriptive and long-lasting in their focus, and include geochemistry and geophysical aspects wherever possible. Major mining districts of national significance are also included.
From its beginnings in 1953, this volume has proven indispensable to geologists working in Australia. This is because it is the only accessible resource of its kind. No federal or state government produces anything along the lines of the Australian Ore Deposits monograph, nor do other industry bodies. It really is one of a kind.
