In summary, A. A. Levinson has put together a competent review of the recent literature in exploration geochemistry and, as such, the book will provide a useful source of material for teachers of applied geochemistry, and will undoubtedly be welcomed by geologists wishing to keep abreast of recent developments in geochemical prospecting.”
