Special Issue "Role of Magmatic Activity in Generation of Ore Deposits"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
Magmas may supply the metals, the magmatic/hydrothermal volatile solutions that transport metals, or the heat to drive hydrothermal convection systems that redistribute and deposit metals in a wide range of different types of ore deposits. These include, among others, strictly magmatic deposits, such as Pt, in large layered igneous intrusions and some magmatic Fe/Cu/Au ore, magmatic/hydrothermal IOGC, and Cu/Mo/Au porphyry and breccia deposit, epithermal and skarn Au/Ag deposits, and REE ores. Since different types of magmas are generated in different tectonic environments, the types of ore deposits associated with these environments also vary. This Special Issue will focus on the multiple roles of magmas in the generation of a wide range of ore deposits, highlighting the diversity of processes that generate economic ore deposits associated in some fashion with igneous rocks. The issue will bring together new research results and conceptual models of ore deposit formation in the ever-evolving field of economic geology as a contribution to increasing our understanding of the complexity of processes related to the genesis of ore deposits and their relation to magma genesis and evolution.

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 papers will be 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 1400 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.
