Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uranium Deposits of the World is an unprecedented collection of data and overviews of the key uranium deposits throughout the world. It is a comprehensive reference on uranium research and exploration that includes all the latest in the field as well as previously unavailable data and information regarding Russian and Chinese deposits. Comprised of four volumes, this landmark reference provides a comprehensive analytical overview of each country or region covered before it then details a geological and economic synopsis of the individual regions and fields. That synopsis includes discussion of the following: location and magnitude of uranium districts and deposits; principal features of uranium districts; and characteristics of selected deposits. The description of districts and deposits includes sections on geology, alteration, mineralogy, shape and dimensions, ore controls or recognition criteria, and metallogenetic aspects. A typological classification of uranium deposits is added to give an overview of principal criteria of deposit types and related nomenclature. In addition, these four volumes are generously illustrated throughout with information-laden charts and maps, and they include an exhaustive bibliography of uranium-related publications. Quite possibly the most thorough reference ever on uranium, a carbon-neutral energy resource destined to play a major role in the future powering of our planet, Uranium Deposits of the World is indispensable for geologists, mining companies, government agencies, and anyone else with any interest in this key natural resource.

Synopsis:

This reference on uranium regions across the globe includes previously unavailable data on Russian and Chinese deposits. It gives an analytical overview plus geological and economic synopsis of each country discussed, and it includes maps, charts, and a bibliography of uranium-related resources.

Uranium Deposits of the World, in four volumes, comprises an unprecedented compilation of data and overviews of the key uranium regions throughout the globe. It offers not only a complete uranium-resource reference based on the latest research but also access to previously unavailable data. Each country and region receives an analytical overview followed by the detailed geologically- and economically-relevant synopsis of the individual regions and fields, including: location and magnitude of uranium districts and deposits; principal features of uranium districts; and characteristics of selected deposits.

The set also provides readers access to the voluminous literature via the comprehensive bibliography of uranium-related publications. Abundantly illustrated with information-laden maps and charts throughout, this reference work is an indispensable tool for geologists, mining companies, government agencies, and those with interest in key natural resources. The four volumes of Uranium Deposits of the World, available as set, cover the world's populated continents: Asia; Europe; Australia, Oceania, and Africa; and USA, and Latin America.

Synopsis:

Uranium Deposits of the World gathers and presents a massive collection of data on the location, quality and accessibility of uranium resources in nearly every region of the globe. Incorporating the latest findings, including much newly available material, this is the most comprehensive reference work yet produced on the topic. The coverage goes further, offering expert overviews and fine-grained analysis of the economic viability of ore deposits. This exhaustive, up-to-date reference is designed for practical use, and arranged by four geographic regions: Asia; USA and Latin America; Europe; and Australia-Oceania and Africa. Each region and country is introduced with an analytical overview, followed by a detailed geologically- and economically- relevant synopsis of its individual regions and ore fields. The data includes location and magnitude of uranium districts and deposits; principal features of the districts; and characteristics of selected deposits. Abundantly illustrated with maps and useful charts, the descriptions of districts and deposits include sections on geology, alteration, mineralogy, shape and dimensions, ore controls or recognition criteria, and metallogenic aspects. A typological classification of deposits gives an overview of principal criteria of deposit types and related nomenclature.

About the Author

Dr. Franz J. Dahlkamp has extensive experience in the uranium industry working as an economic geologist with several mining companies in Germany and abroad since 1958. From 1974 to 1978 he was the head of worldwide uranium exploration for Uranerz. Uranerz discovered the Key Lake Deposit in the Athabaska Basin in 1975. Dr. Dahlkamp has authored several important books on the geology of uranium deposits, including Uranium Ore Deposits published by Springer in 1993. He has lectured at universities in Austria and Germany.
