A Perspective on Mining Geology

CIM Bulletin, 1949

IT IS thirty-odd years since I first entered the mining field by working underground at Anyox, which makes it clear that I can qualify as one of the older generation and claim the privilege of dealing in generalities. and broad impressions. In this position I find it interesting to review the salient changes that have taken place during the past quarter century and indulge in some speculations concerning the future, with the hope that my comments may be of value to others engaged in the field of mining geology.
