Queen's Geological Engineering graduate, Dr. Derek McBride BSc '68, MSc '72, is coauthor of a book published October 2015. The book is titled "The Metallogeny of Lode Gold Deposits: A Syngenetic Perspective".

The book "presents a groundbreaking formation theory for lode vein gold deposits coupled with practical exploration guidelines, incorporating widely known and accepted principles of ore deposition and showing how they apply to lode gold environments with examples based directly on the authors’ field work." It is also "the first book to galvanize lode gold research into a single authoritative reference".
