Couverture de l’ouvrage Discovery of Oyu Tolgoi

Discovery of Oyu Tolgoi: A Case Study of Mineral and Geological Exploration is a detailed account of the exploration for copper deposits in Mongolia that was started in mid-90s by Magma Copper and then continued by BHP Billiton World Exploration Inc., which consequently lead to the discovery of Oyu Tolgoi, a major metal mine. In November 2017 Oyu Tolgoi celebrated its 20th anniversary of its discovery. This book commemorates this historical event for the global mining industry. The book includes details for various exploration methods and tools applied by the exploration team throughout the discovery. The models applied by the explorers also evolved over the course of execution of their exploration program, as did the knowledge in the team for regional geology and understanding of necessary geological conditions for a significant porphyry discovery.
