Special Issue "Platinum-Group Minerals: New Results and Advances in PGE Mineralogy in Various Ni-Cu-Cr-PGE Ore Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 March 2019)
Dr. Andrei Y. Barkov
We aim to publish a Special Issue of the journal that presents a set of themed articles on “New Results and Advances in PGE Mineralogy in Various Ni-Cu-Cr-PGE Ore Systems”. The main focus will be on platinum-group minerals (PGM) and phases rich in the platinum-group elements (PGE). Our Special Issue will cover a broad range of relevant topics of interest, such as:
- PGE mineralogy in Ni-Cu-PGE-Cr ore systems associated with layered intrusions;
- New data on PGM in ophiolite complexes;
- Associations of PGM in Alaskan-Uralian-type complexes;
- PGE minerals and ore-forming processes in PGE-bearing zones in various complexes;
- Atypical PGE deposits: their mineralogy and genesis;
- Platinum-group minerals in placers and their lode sources;
- New species or varieties of PGM and unusual PGE-rich phases or associations.
Thank you and we look forward to receiving your contributions.
The first round of submission deadline was 30 November 2018.Dr. Andrei Y. Barkov
