Description

The Woodlawn orebody is located in eastern New South Wales, Australia. It is one of an important class of massive, copper-lead-zinc, stratiform volcanogenic mineral deposits and has reserves of about 10 million tonnes of ore. Deposits such as Woodlawn are the object of considerable worldwide exploitation effort because they yield the highest rate of return on mining investment with modest capital requirements. This detailed geophysical case study contains individual contributions by professionals from diverse backgrounds (industry, government and university) and includes the latest geophysical methods. It is the only detailed geophysical study of an economic sulphide deposit ever undertaken for educational purposes

Readership

Practising geologists, geophysicists, mining engineers, mineral explorers, applied mathematicians, computer scientists, mineral economists, senior undergraduate and graduate students in earth sciences, science and engineering

Reviews

@qu:I believe that most ore-deposits geophysicists will want to have their libraries purchase the book. All up-to-date libraries should have a copy on their shelves.

American Scientist @source: @qu:The pubication does present an excellent geophysical case study into the response of various geophysical techniques over the Woodlawn body. It should provide a valuable teaching aid for teachers and students of geophysics and provide practising geophysicists with a useful reference.
