Circular 101—Exploration for mineral resources

By F. E. Kottlowski and R. W. Foster, 1969, 126 pp., 3 tables, 69 figs.

Summaries of technical talks at conference on Exploration for and Discovery of Mineral Resources include USGS Heavy Metals Program, mineral exploration in New Mexico, exploration techniques, industrial minerals exploration, terradynamics, geophysical prospecting, geothermal resources, geochemical methods, air- and space-born remote sensors, value of New Mexico's mineral resources, and exploration hypotheses for Luis Lopez deposits. The plan of the Idea Conference of Mineral Resources Discovery and Development was simple, direct, and comprehensive. All were fortunate in having some of the nation's foremost explorationists tell about new methods of exploration and about new uses for the time-tested older methods. The speakers represented all organizations involved in exploration, petroleum companies, mining companies, geophysical companies, state geological surveys, the U.S. Geological Survey, and colleges.
