Edited by Frank Hughes a highly successful exploration geologist and a group of specialist advisors Geology of the Mineral Deposits of Australia and Papua New Guinea covers the major mines and mineral prospects of this area. Presented in two hard cover volumes Geology of the Mineral Deposits of Australia and Papua New Guinea follows the general format of the highly sought after monograph and proceedings of 1955 1965 and 1975 on the economic geology of Australia and Papua New Guinea which are now collectors’ items. It also includes a group of general and introductory papers followed by a chapter on mineral deposits in each of the major metallogenic provinces.
This monograph reflects the enthusiasm and interest of today with the current emphasis on nickel in the 1975 monograph. Two folded geological maps are included in a back pocket of the volume one each of Australia and Papua New Guinea to be used as a locality index.
