Much new data and many new ideas have emerged in the area of ore geology and industrial minerals since publication of the second edition of this text in 1987. The overriding philosophy behind this new edition is the inclusion and integration of this new material within the established framework of the text. The third edition is re-presented in the modern double-column format.
Non-metallic deposits of industrial and bulk materials are fully covered to meet the changing emphasis of courses in applied geology. In addition, chapter 1 has been considerably enlarged to include a section on mineral economics covering metals, industrial minerals and bulk materials. In this section, the various aspects of economic exploitation of industrial and bulk materials are compared with those of metallic deposits. Other major revisions and additions include a section on fluid inclusions, expansion of the section on wall rock alteration, expansion of the material on isotope studies, and the inclusion of a section on hydraulic fracturing and seismic pumping.

This third edition of A.M. Evan’s successful undergraduate text Introduction to Ore Geology is an enlarged and d extensively revised work. The increase in size (and the new title) primarily reflects the additional coverage of industrial minerals and bulk materials, an area of economic geology that has grown in prominence over the past decade.
The new edition includes three new chapters: the opening chapter provides and overview of mineral economics and two chapters are devoted entirely to industrial minerals.Review:
'From second edition:
“ The book deserves to do well; Dr. Evans has got the balance of subject matter about right for a comprehensive introductory text... the book is realistic in its demands on the reader and should become equally popular as its predecessor.” Geological Journal
“Because of the immense range of knowledge required to write a good textbook on the subject, few economic geologists have the talent, time and willingness to devote to this task; and few, if any, really good textbooks on the subject have been written in recent years. Considering its modest length, this book by Evans comes as close as any to meeting the needs for a first course in ore deposits.” Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta
“Basically, this book is an excellent undergraduate-level text, which I will again consider using.” Canadian Mineralogist
