Excerpt from Graphical Solution of Fault Problems<br><br>The methods that the geological engineer uses in the studv of ore deposits, have as yet received no satisfactory ex position in print, because of both the recentness of the development of this branch of engineering, and the extent of the subject, involving, as it does, the application of the methods of field geology, petrology, mineralogy, and the comparative study of ore deposits. It is not to be expected that the miner or engineer directing underground Operations can always be thoroughly versed in the broad science of ore deposits, but he must at least make a study of the details and peculiarities of the deposit he is developing. He should understand, not only the mapping of underground work ings, but of the structural features of the lode as well. If the structure is accurately plotted, the relation of the ore deposit to the same should become plain; the application of the methods of descriptive geometry becomes easy; and the developments may be carried ou, not under the guidance of the miner's 'nose for ore,' but in accordance With the struc ture of the deposit. Thus a permanent record of the geology is kept that may mean much When portions of the mine become inaccessible.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
