Reviews


"The book provides an extensive overview of natural resources and societal issues associated with extracting raw materials." (Economic Geology, August 2013)

"It is difficult to specify the readership that would benefit most from this book, but advanced students of economic geology, mining engineering and environmental studies would certainly find much of interest by perusal of selected sections. Practitioners would also gain insights into fields well beyond their specialities, which was certainly the case with this reviewer. Economic Geology: Principles and Practice merits a place on the shelves of all university and geological society libraries." (Miner Deposita, 2011)

Tony Waltham writes, "For an impressive overview of a huge subject, this book must take some beating." (Geology Today, 1 March 2012)

"Overall, an excellent resource for earth science and geology students enrolled in mineral exploration and/or general mining and reclamation programs; also very useful to practicing economic geologists/professionals involved in mining, mine reclamation, and environmental studies. Summing Up: Highly recommend." (Choice, 1 January 2012)

"I highly recommend the landmark text book Economic Geology: Principles and Practice by Walter L. Pohl, to any students, professional geologists and others in the related industries, and anyone interested in mineral ores, and in the environmental aspects of economic geology. This book is especially important is a time of escalating demand for minerals and ores of all types, in a world facing ever increasing population and environmental and sustainability pressures."
