About this title

Synopsis:

Uranium Deposits of the World, in three volumes, comprises an unprecedented compilation of data and descriptions of the uranium regions in Asia, USA, Latin America and Europe structured by countries.

With this third, the Europe volume, Uranium Deposits of the World presents the most extensive data collection of the set. It covers about 140 uranium regions in more than 20 European countries with nearly 1000 mentioned uranium deposits. Each country and region receives an analytical overview followed by the geologically- and economically-relevant synopsis of the individual regions and fields. The presentations are structured in three major sections: (a) location and magnitude of uranium regions, districts, and deposits, (b) principal features of regions and districts, and (c) detailed characteristics of selected ore fields and deposits. This includes sections on geology, alteration, mineralization, shape and dimensions of deposits, isotopes data, ore control and recognition criteria, and metallogenesis.

Beside the main European uranium regions, for example in the Czech Republic, Eastern Germany, France, the Iberian Peninsula or Ukraine, also small regions an districts to the point of singular occurrences of interest are considered. This by far the most comprehensive presentation of European uranium geology and mining would not be possible without the author’s access to extensive information covering the countries of the former Eastern Bloc states, which was partly not previously available. Abundantly illustrated with information-laden maps and charts throughout, this reference work is an indispensable tool for geologists, mining companies, government agencies, and others with an interest in European key natural resources. A great help for the reader’s orientation are the substantial bibliography of uranium-related publications and the indices, latter containing about 3900 entries in the geographical part alone.

The three volumes of Uranium Deposits of the World are available as a set or individually. Also accessible (as a set and separate volumes) as an eReference on SpringerLink.com. The originally planned fourth volume with Australia, Oceania, and Africa will not be published after the author suddenly deceased.

From the Back Cover:

Uranium Deposits of the World is an unprecedented collection of data and overviews of the key uranium deposits throughout the world. It is a comprehensive reference on uranium research and exploration that includes all the latest in the field as well as previously unavailable data and information regarding Russian and Chinese deposits. Comprised of four volumes, this landmark reference provides a comprehensive analytical overview of each country or region covered before it then details a geological and economic synopsis of the individual regions and fields. That synopsis includes discussion of the following: location and magnitude of uranium districts and deposits; principal features of uranium districts; and characteristics of selected deposits. The description of districts and deposits includes sections on geology, alteration, mineralogy, shape and dimensions, ore controls or recognition criteria, and metallogenetic aspects. A typological classification of uranium deposits is added to give an overview of principal criteria of deposit types and related nomenclature. In addition, these four volumes are generously illustrated throughout with information-laden charts and maps, and they include an exhaustive bibliography of uranium-related publications. Quite possibly the most thorough reference ever on uranium, a carbon-neutral energy resource destined to play a major role in the future powering of our planet, Uranium Deposits of the World is indispensable for geologists, mining companies, government agencies, and anyone else with any interest in this key natural resource.
