This monograph on Magmatic Ore Deposits has resulted from a Symposium held at Stanford University on November 12 and 13, 1966. All except three of the papers that were presented are published in this volume as well as some of the discussion and the summation of the symposium. Unfortunately much of the discussion cannot be included because the volume is already so large. The best introduction to this volume is, perhaps, the introduction as it was presented at the symposium:

This symposium was conceived in 1962 when the Program Policy Committee recommended that the . Society of Economic Geologists should sponsor a symposium on magmatic ore deposits. The Committee under the chairmanship of John K. Gustafson believed this to be an effective method of advancing geologic thought. It is fitting that the symposium should finally be held during Gustafson’s presidential year. The proposal of the Program Policy Committee was approved by Council at its meeting in November, 1962. A special committee consisting of G. Kullerud, J. A. Noble, C. H. Smith, T. P. Thayer, with H. D. B. Wilson as chairman, was appointed by the President, Olaf N. Rove, in February 1963 to make arrangements for the symposium. E. N. Cameron, Secretary of the Society, was ex officio member of the special committee and remained as an active member when he resigned the secretaryship. C. H. Park, Jr. joined the committee shortly after its formation.

The Program Policy Committee was prompted to recommend the symposium by the realization that the underlying theory of the formation of magmatic ore deposits was formulated many decades ago.
