Sedimentary Ores-Ancient and Modern (Revised), edited by C. H. James. Proceedings of the 15th Inter-University Geological Congress. University of Leicester, December, 1967. Special Publication No.1, Department of Geology, University of Leicester, February, 1969. Obtainable from: Leicester University Bookshop, May's Walk, Leicester LE 17 RD. Price: 42s. Postage and packing, 3s. 6d. This volume should be of interest to economic geologists and students in this field.

Garlick's paper on Zambian copper deposits, the Abstracts given are inadequate, necessitating thorough reading of the papers to extract the important matter.
