Summary:This book describes the respective roles of sedimentary geologists, geomorphologists, mineralogists, geophysicists and geochemists in exploration for placer deposits. Early chapters discuss the provenances of placer minerals, the nature of the sedimentation processes involved, and the coordination of skills required for testing deposits. Placer mining and minerals processing are discussed at some length and there is a final chapter on placer valuation. [R.A.H.]
