Mineral Exploration an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Oct 02, 2011· N.C. White, in Encyclopedia of Geology, 2005. Introduction. Mineral exploration aims to discover deposits of minerals and rocks that can be used to meet the resource needs of society. It encompasses the search for industrial raw materials (e.g., clay, limestone, sulphur, salts, and fertilizer minerals and rocks), ores from which metals are extracted (e.g., iron, copper, and zinc ores), and
