Contents Notes Preface -- Introduction -- 1. China's tectonic framework in the global context -- 2. North China and Tarim Cratonic blocks -- 3. Yangtze Craton, Cathaysia and the South Block -- 4. Orogenic belts: South China, Central Central China and Qinling-Dabie, Hingan -- 5. Tianshan, Junggar and Altay orogens (NW China), the Alpine-Himalayan fold belts (Tethyan orogens), Kunlun and Songpan-Ganzi terranes -- 6. Large Igneous Provinces (Xiong'er, Dashigou, 827 Ma event,Tarim, Emeishan) and the Yanshanian tectono-thermal event of eastern China -- 7. Volcano-sedimentary and sedimentary basins in China: Junggar, Tarim, Tuha, Qaidam-Hoh Xil, Ordos; basins in Eastern China associated with lithospheric thinning (Songliao, Bohai).- Index. Extensive descriptions of a wide range of key or world-class mineral deposits of China are presented in the context of the country's general geology, tectonic units and mineral systems and their geodynamic evolution within the tectonic framework of the Asian continent. This comprehensive overview, incorporating the latest geological concepts, is the first such coverage written in English by a western expert, and will be of benefit to mineral explorers and miners, as well as to research scientists and students in institutions of higher education. In his compilation of this compendium of Chinese geology and mineral systems, Franco Pirajno draws on first-hand knowledge of China's geology and mineral deposits gained in numerous field visits and research projects with Chinese colleagues from various academic institutions over the past 18 years. First time that a western-based book on China's geology and mineral deposits is published Appropriate for use by the mineral exploration industry Modern English-language geological and mineral deposits information on China Most useful to Western (and Chinese) geoscientists
