About this book

Introduction

The extraordinary growth of the computer and semiconductor industrires and the increasing consumption of indium in these technologies in recent years have placed major constraints on current and future reserves of this metal. Despite the current technological interest, there is no comprehensive textbook which deals with all aspects of indium mineralization and economics. This book reviews the geological, mineralogical, geochemical and petrological characteristics of indium-bearing ore deposits and develops a general metallogenic concept for indium in identifying the essential enrichment processes and their economic significance.
