1. “Macraes Orogenic Gold Deposit (New Zealand): Origin and Development of a World Class Gold Mine (SpringerBriefs in World Mineral Deposits)” by Dave Craw and Doug MacKenzie

“Macraes Orogenic Gold Deposit (New Zealand): Origin and Development of a World Class Gold Mine (SpringerBriefs in World Mineral Deposits)” Book Review: This book tells about origin of macraes gold deposit. It discusses key controls on making a world class deposit. The world-class gold deposit has a remarkable economic and geology success story. It has developed from a small historical gold mine in discontinuous quartz veins. It measured only meters to a large scale mine in deposits spreading over kilometers in extensive disseminated gold bearing rock.

3. “Heavy Minerals Deposit in the Major Rivers of Bangladesh” by Iqbal MD Zafar and Mahmud MD Salim

“Heavy Minerals Deposit in the Major Rivers of Bangladesh” Book Review: Bangladesh has many rivers. This book talks about these rivers, among which there are only 3 main rivers(the Padma, the brahmaputra-jamuna and the meghna) which come from himalaya. Due to the denudation process, about 2billion tons of sediments are carried out per year, and about 40% of them are deposited in the fluvial system and forming numerous bars. These bars across the 3 major rivers contain heavy and light minerals. The heavy consists of non opaque (zircon, rutile, tourmaline, epidote, garnet, staurolite, chlorite and biotite) and opaque ( ilmenite, magnetite, hematite, and limonite). It also discusses about 5 economic minerals concentration and variation and their reserve.

5. “Mineral Resource Base of the Southern Caucasus and Systems for its Management in the XXI Century” by Alexander G Tvalchrelidze and Georges Morizot

“Mineral Resource Base of the Southern Caucasus and Systems for its Management in the XXI Century” Book Review: The NATO advanced research workshop “Mineral resource base of the southern caucasus and systems for its management in the XXI century” was held in Tbilisi on April 3-6, 2001. The NATO science programme and open society-Georgia foundation financed the workshop. New states of the southern caucasus (Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia) were in the lowest phase of a severe structural crisis in the end of the 20 century. In the 19 and 20 century, belonging to the same geopolitical space and having common economic history,these countries will overcome the crisis and integrate into the world step by step. Exploiting their resource bases and developing competitive branches of industries. Such conception is the only alternative to the spontaneous economical chaos. There was no solution without close international collaboration. The idea of regional alliances where regional actors would be linked by a general, non contradictory macroeconomic model seems to be the only possibility for sustainable development. Creation of the southern Caucasus alliance(SCA) where Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey would find their place could be possible only in case of the economic reality and economic interests would weigh down nationalistic doctrines of political isolation.

6. “Mineral Deposits of the World: Ores, Industrial Minerals and Rocks (Developments in Economic Geology)” by M Vanecek

“Mineral Deposits of the World: Ores, Industrial Minerals and Rocks (Developments in Economic Geology)” Book Review: This overview of the world’s mineral deposits lists the metallic and non-metallic mineral deposits according to continents, subdividing the latter with respect to regional metallogenic zones. The introductory chapters summarize present knowledge of the basic concepts of the geologic structure and the evolution of the continents and oceans. The description of the essential metallogenic units has been complemented by main aspects of the development of the global metallogeny in time and space. The characteristics of the world’s mineral wealth have been supplemented with basic data on the amount, extent and manner of using these mineral resources. Economic geologists will find this volume of interest.
