Epithermal Gold in the Philippines : Island Arc Metallogenesis, Geothermal System and Geology
This is the first comprehensive account of Philippine gold deposits and geology. Epithermal gold deposits present a major challenge to geologists because the nature of the surface environment beneath which major deposits develop and the regional geological controls by the creation of major deposits remain poorly understood. New ideas on the genus of gold deposits and relationship to Philippine tectonics together with new data on Southeast Asia gold and tectonics are covered.
