Mapping and Structural Geology in Mineral Exploration

A text aimed at practicing exploration and mining professionals working in folded, sheared, or cleaved terranes, but also including an outline of basic mapping and field procedures applicable to a variety of terranes.
It is very much based on Rod Holcombe's personal approach to working with structures in the field, and has evolved out of numerous in-house training sessions within exploration and mining environments. The assumption is that readers already have a geology degree, but may have forgotten, or require revision of, basic structural geology concepts. It has a practical field-based bias up-front, a modicum of theory where required, and with hardcore theory left to the final chapter.
