Le Neve Foster wrote many papers on economic mineralogy & geology. He
was a co-author of the MGS 'Geol of Carb. Lst. ..... of North
Derbyshire & the Adjoining Parts of Yorkshire'. He contributed to
Topley's Memoir on the Geology of the Weald; with Topley he is
credited with making a significant contribution to the understanding
of the geomorphological development of the Weald. However, he's
probably best known for his many years of service as a Government
Mines Inspector, Cornwall & north Wales (1872-1901) and professor of
mining in the Royal School of Mines, London.
