Cornwall is renowned for the diversity and complexity of its geology. This geology, and its relation to the mineral wealth of the county, has been the subject of continuing investigation since the end of the seventeenth century. The Geology of Cornwall analyses this literature of great historical interest alongside a wide-ranging review of the current position and assessments of the environmental consequences of rock and mineral exploitation.
 
These contributions by twenty-one leading academic and commercial geologists are aimed at all readers with an amateur or professional interest in exploring the fascinating geology of Cornwall. Undergraduate fieldworkers will find the book particularly helpful.
OUGS Journal

“A useful book for an introduction to Cornish geology.” –OUGS Journal, 22(1), Spring 2001

Mineralogical Magazine

“Altogether this is a most informative and readable book, and the paperback version is very reasonably priced. It is recommended for anyone who wishes to gain an informed up-to-date introduction to the geology of this geologically complex, yet historically important area.” –Mineralogical Magazine, October 1999
