About the Author

Anthony M. Evans was formerly Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester and editor of a number of successful texts on mineral deposits.


'From second edition:

" The book deserves to do well; Dr. Evans has got the balance of subject matter about right for a comprehensive introductory text... the book is realistic in its demands on the reader and should become equally popular as its predecessor." Geological Journal

"Because of the immense range of knowledge required to write a good textbook on the subject, few economic geologists have the talent, time and willingness to devote to this task; and few, if any, really good textbooks on the subject have been written in recent years. Considering its modest length, this book by Evans comes as close as any to meeting the needs for a first course in ore deposits." Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta

"Basically, this book is an excellent undergraduate-level text, which I will again consider using." Canadian Mineralogist
