Magmatic sulfides provide most of the world's supplies of platinum and nickel, among other rare and valuable ores. The author, a ranking authority on the topic, discusses the types of rocks that contain magmatic sulfides, the chemical processes by which they form, and the geological setting of major nickel-copper and platinum deposits throughout the world--in Canada, Australia, the U.S.S.R., South Africa, the U.S.A., and Zimbabwe. Naldrett also examines how theories about ore genesis can be applied in exploring for minerals. The book will be used in graduate-level courses and by economic geologists, geochemists, and geologists in the mining industry. It will also be of interest to members of geological surveys worldwide.

Review:

"This compact volume sets as its goal "an attempt to freeze and preserve, at this instant in time, {our} ...understanding of magmatic sulfide ores." This modest goal is, indeed, well met and far exceeded. For this book is more than a mere compilation and distillation of the ideas of many
workers; it does compile and distill, but then it breaks new ground by extending the concepts and offering new interpretations . . . . "The tables present a wealth of data never before brought into such a complete and useful form . . . . There can be little doubt that this volume is destined to be
the reference of choice for those working on or looking for magmatic sulfide deposits." --American Scientist
