about

Nickel Sulfide Ores and Impact Melts: Origin of the Sudbury Igneous Complexpresents a current state of understanding on the geology and ore deposits of the Sudbury Igneous Complex in Ontario, Canada. As the first complete reference on the subject, this book explores the linkage between the processes of meteorite impact, melt sheet formation, differentiation, sulfide immiscibility and metal collection, and the localization of ores by magmatic and post-magmatic processes.

The discovery of new ore deposits requires industry and government scientists and academic scholars to have access to the latest understanding of ore formation process models that link to the mineralization of their host rocks. The ore deposits at Sudbury are one of the world's largest ore systems, representing a classic case study that brings together very diverse datasets and ways of thinking.

This book is designed to emphasize concepts that can be applied across a broad range of ore deposit types beyond Sudbury and nickel deposit geology. It is an essential resource for exploration geologists, university researchers, and government scientists, and can be used in rock and mineral analysis, remote sensing, and geophysical applications.



  • Provides the only reference book to focus entirely on the Sudbury Igneous Complex
  • Brings together an understanding of ore deposit and impact melts as a basis for future exploration
  • Authored by a leading expert on the geology of the Sudbury Igneous Complex with 35 years of experience working on nickel sulfide ore deposits
Dr. Peter Lightfoot is a Chief Geologist with the Brownfield Exploration group at Vale Base Metals. He is responsible for technical aspects of the exploration programs at Sudbury, Thompson, and Voisey's Bay and tracks the developments in understanding of the geology and global supply of metals from nickel sulfide and laterite deposits....
