This new handbook provides a broad overview of field and laboratory techniques applicable in mineral exploration. The reason for publishing such a volume, as stated by the author, is the fact that information on the various techniques relevant to mineral exploration are scattered throughout the geo-sciences literature and usually difficult to obtain in the universities of India, where expensive textbooks and journals are not readily available for reference.
The task to write a textbook summarizing field and laboratory techniques would be daunting to most geoscientists, particularly as the degree of sophistication and the areas of application of laboratory techniques are...
