Written by a leading authority on the subject of magmatic sulfide deposits, this book presents both an overview of deposit types and a summary both of the resources of nickel, copper and platinum-group elements in the world's principal known deposits and of the relevant physical chemistry. The core of the book comprises a discussion of the geology and geochemistry of each of the deposit types in turn, accompanied by the implications of this data to the origin of the deposits in the light of our understanding of the chemical processes involved. A final chapter focuses on the use of the genetic concepts in exploration.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This book … provides a welcome personalized overview of the current ideas on the origin of Ni-Cu sulfide deposits … . Very importantly, the book shows clearly how the study of ore-forming processes helps in mineral exploration. … I would advise all my graduate students to tackle this remarkable piece of work. Overall, Magmatic sulfide deposits … is strongly recommended to professional economic geologists and any scientifically literate person who wants an introduction to the subject." (Mei-Fu Zhou, Economic Geology, 2005)

"It clearly represents a comprehensive summary of the life’s work of an acknowledged expert in the field of magmatic sulphide deposits through out the world. … This is a comprehensive and detailed treatise, clearly written and well illustrated with a large number of maps and diagrams. … The excellent writing style will make this book accessible to all, from students looking for specific references to those who seek a comprehensive knowledge … . Researchers and industrial professionals will find this volume indispensable … ." (Dr. Stephen Cribb, Materials World, June, 2006)

"Magmatic Sulphide Deposits provides an updated summary of the state of understanding of the most important Ni sulfide deposits. This book is an enormously expanded and updated version of his original textbook on the subject … . provides a wealth of information to the reader in a form that is readily understood by one who is new to the subject." (Peter C. Lightfoot, The Canadian Mineralogist, Vol. 43, 2005)
