Summary:This issue of Economic Geology (pp 1425-1758) adds 17 reports to those earlier published by a nine-year project (No. 60) of the International Geological Correlation Programme (IGCP) on the Correlation of Caledonian Stratabound Sulphides (CCSS). The contents of the 17 reports are noted and briefly discussed in relation to one another and to stratiform ores as a whole. From this preview, it is concluded that geological mapping appears to be still the best way to find strata-bound sulphide deposits. [G.J.N.]
