The American Institute of Professional Geologists - The Professional Geologist Magazine - Sept/Oct., 2011 (www.aipg.org)
The text is a distinctive summary of the major components of the mining industry. The graphics are well done. The photographs are generally crisp and nicely descriptive of the subject matter. The diagrams are simple and the colors used in the diagrams clearly present the technical features described.
In summary, Mineral Exploration and Mining Essentials provides an excellent introduction to the mining industry for its target, non-technical audience. It is also a book that economic geologists may find useful in providing basic information that can be used to guide presentations to non-technically trained associates.
