A Prospector's Guide to Mineral Occurrences in Northern Rhodesia. Arranged and Compiled for the British South Africa Company by T.D. Guernsey
(Salisbury: The British South Africa Company, 1952). . 8vo; original light green cloth, lettered in black on spine and upper cover; pp. (iv) + 91; several maps and charts, incl. folding; large, folding map, in colours, mounted to rear pastedown. Extremities somewhat rubbed; corners a little turned; sporadic, moderate foxing. Good to very good condition. "The several large mines now in production have tended lately to overshadow the numerous Occurrences of minerals in other parts of the country which, though perhaps remote and inconspicuous, may nevertheless have considerable present or future value. It is the purpose of this volume to place before those interested in the mineral wealth of the Territory a concise summary of its geologic framework and, in greater detail, some of the information which is available, but not yet published, relating to the numerous known Occurrences of economic minerals. It is hoped the descriptions and data on the following pages will be of practical use to prospectors and will stimulate in others an interest in the prospector's work and the country's resources.".
