A History: Placer Development Limited and Placer Dome Inc.

A History: Placer Development Limited and Placer Dome Inc. compiled by Nean Allman and Justin Baulch is an account of the evolution of a Canadian junior exploration company into the global mining giant that was acquired by Barrick Gold in 2006. According to reviewer Brett Davis in the AusIMM Bulletin, this book is different from other mining histories thanks to the inclusion of abundant personal accounts, musings, and admissions. Three meaningful timelines in the book show the twists and turns that produced Placer Dome, which was formed by the merger of Placer Development, Dome Mines and Campbell Red Lake Mines in 1987.
