This publication offers first with the geological investigations in regards to the genesis and geologic beneficial properties of salt deposits, particularly the geology of evaporite formation. the subsequent bankruptcy describes the actual and mechanical houses of salt rocks, similar to creep, pressure, hardening, tensile and shearing strengths, permeability, and plasticity. The dialogue then shifts to the mechanism of stress-relief creep happening in salt rock via excavation. The final bankruptcy examines stress-relief creep zones, which expand to the boundary of interbedded formations displaying elastic behavior.

Established within the type of a dichotomous key, reminiscent of these normal in botany, the mineral key presents a good and systematic method of deciding on rock-forming minerals in thin-section. This special approach covers one hundred fifty+ of the main regularly encountered rock-forming minerals, plus a couple of rarer yet noteworthy ones.
