BEING ONE OF THE “NEW LAND" SERIES
The Author has gone carefully through the book and made such corrections and alterations as the short interval between the editions made necessary, and it is hoped that the book will continue in favour as hitherto.
PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION.
It has not been deemed advisable to make any material alterations in the plan and scope of this work, so that, beyond careful revision and the addition of a few characteristic illustrations of important mineral deposits, the present edition is in much the same form as the previous
The criticisms of the press generally, and the kind expressions of personal approval of the book which the Author has received from numerous practical men, lead him to hope that he has succeeded in his endeavour to produce a handy and useful book for prospectors in all lands, so far as all the important minerals and ores, their recognition and their modes of occurrence, are concerned.
