Special Issue Information
The global distribution of different types of mineralization closely correlates in space and time to geodynamic processes resulting from plate tectonics and supercontinent cycle. Crustal-scale structures in the Earth represent a connectivity network linking deep-seated mineral fluids and uppermost crustal levels. The structural control on sedimentation, magmatism and deformation pattern in different tectonic settings is a key issue to be addressed in complex geological environments with mineralization at local and regional scale. In this light, 3D-modelling integrating multi-disciplinary geodata sets in synergy with validated geological interpretation, provides a better comprehensive understanding and visualization of the structural-geological framework in connection with mineral deposit systems, for further assessment of mineral resources and exploration perspective.
The Special Issue “3D-Modelling of Crustal Structures and Mineral Deposit Systems” invites papers dealing with 3D-modelling, structural geology and ore deposits including original applications and new perspectives in research, with contribution from academia, geological surveys and the industry.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
