About this book

Introduction

This book deals with the problems and methods of paleohydrogeolo­ gy in relation to ore deposit studies. It presents a description of dif­ ferent techniques used in the course of structural-paleohydrogeologi­ cal, paleo hydrogeochemical and paleo hydro geothermal investiga­ tions. It also provides itlformation on the regular, regional patterns of formation and subsequent distribution of ground water within dif­ ferent shells of the Earth. The main aspects of metal content of ground water and contemporary processes of ore genesis are discuss­ ed. Ore deposits are classified according to paleohydrogeological con­ ditions under which they were formed. The readers are acquainted with paleohydrogeological analysis of these conditions for different types of ore deposits, namely (1) ore deposits formed in artesian basins, in which sedimentary rocks were predominant both at the time of magmatic activity and in the periods free of this activity; (2) ore deposits formed in artesian, ad artesian basins (and admassifs) characterized by extensive development of volcanic rocks and magmatic activity; (3) ore deposits that originated in hydrogeological massifs (and admassifs) in the process of formation of linear weather­ ing crusts. This book, which should be of great interest to geologists engaged in prospecting for and exploration and study of ore minerals, also in­ cludes 38 tables, 60 illustrations and a bibliography of 450 titles.
