Special Issue "Ore Genesis and Metamorphism: Geochemistry, Mineralogy, and Isotopes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Active industrial development and steadily increasing demand for various types of mineral raw materials require increased rates of mineral production from deposits. The forecast and detection of genesis and multiple stages of various ore deposits is one of the main objectives in different fields of present-day geosciences. This Special Issue will focus on the latest achievements in geochemistry, mineralogy, and geochronology of ore and metamorphic complexes, their relations, and forecasting potential for the further industrial exploration. New data on the world’s major industrial deposits and published works based on theoretical research in metamorphic and ore processes are also of interest. Inter alia, overview papers on modern concepts of formation of ore complexes, their geology, geochemistry, mineralogy, and isotope characteristics are encouraged.

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 1600 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.
