Chapter 1 deals with databases, and parameters fields of ocean skarnoids, including such ‘key’ depostits as Uludag, Felbertal, Tyrnyauz, Yaogansyan, Shichzhuyuan, Srkytoye, Kiyalyh Uzen, Bayan. Chapter 2 is devoted to mineral resources bases of tungsten, molybdenum and tin in leading countries (China, Canada, Kazakhstan, Russia). Chapters 3, 4 and 5 contain descriptions of 100 deposits of oceanic skarnoids. Chapter 6 speaks about the basic geological features, genesis models, field types, geological features and search criteria of major stratiform deposits of the oceanic skarnoid class. The history and the priorities of the concept of ocean skarnoids are given in Chapter 7. Chapters 8 and 9 contain information about the domestic and foreign ore provinces of oceanic skarnoids.
