The Metallogeny of Lode Gold Deposits: A Syngenetic Perspective is a synthesis of lode gold vein forming processes, addressing the commonality in similar worldwide deposits. The book's empirical model incorporates widely known and accepted principles of ore deposition and shows how it applies in the volcanic-sedimentary greenstone belt environment. Several chapters detail outcrop maps and photos of field occurrences and textures. The interpretations flow directly from the authors' field work, and are coupled with analyses of underlying physical processes. Utilizing detailed geological mapping, field work, and chemical analyses as the basis of a syngenetic formation mode, the text arms readers with the tools necessary to accurately analyze and interpret new data on the subject. This includes information on decoding the significance of asymmetry in vein formation, as well as the role of lamprophyres in gold camps, how Archean geology requires integration into a lode vein formation model, and how to develop an understanding of the worldwide applicability of gold cycles to lode vein formation and exploration and how it can be applied to deposits of all ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"... primarily for specialists in gold exploration and will certainly be of considerable interest to them. The production quality is excellent. It is well organized, clearly written, supported by many clear diagrams, photographs and tables..." --The Leading Edge "...encompasses all aspects of gold deposit formation and subsequent deformation...evidence is presented that shows the lode gold deposits were deformed by the initial regional deformation that produced the present steep dips."--Canadian Mining Journal
