Mineral exploration is an economic activity of worldwide importance. This volume, originally published in 1988, makes a substantial contribution to the understanding of mineral exploration and the major economic, political, and geologic forces that govern it. Some chapters examine the behaviour and performance of particular participants in the exploration process while others focus on specific countries. This is a valuable title for any student interested in environmental studies and the global impact of econonmics.
