This publication by the BGS comprises, as the title alludes, a multidisciplinary study combining geological, geochemical and geophysical datasets with the aim of defining exploration models and thus the prospectivity for Zn-Pb deposits in the lower Carboniferous rocks of northern England.

The volume examines in turn, geological and geophysical datasets, regional synthesis of this data, litho- and pedogeochemical data, hydrology, metallogenetic models for both Mississippi-Valley type and Sedimentary Exhalative Zn-Pb deposits, exploration criteria and prospectivity, and, finally, an expert system to analyse this data and define prospectivity maps. The volume also contains detailed appendices to back up these individual sections....
