Special Issue "Development of W-Sn and Rare-Metal Metallogenic Systems in an Orogenic Belt"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2019).
Tungsten, tin, and rare metals are regarded as “strategic resources” or “critical material” by the European Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy. They are essential to modern technologies involved in the development of economy, defense, medicine, renewable energy, or infrastructure, and drivers of our lives in the 21st century. This Special Issue represents a cross-disciplinary appeal covering all the processes involved in the formation of W–Sn and rare metal deposits spatially related to granites or pegmatites, from analytical innovations to metallogenic system models, through to metallogenic provinces, granite and enclosing rock geochemistry, mineral chemistry, trace element geochemistry, geochronology of ore and gangue minerals, stable isotopes, fluid inclusions, experimental investigations, and thermodynamical modeling. This issue intends to cover all aspects contributing to the advancement of the understanding of fundamental problems of ore-forming processes: Tracing the sources of ore components and fluids, determination of physicochemical parameters controlling the transport of metals, and mechanisms of accumulation of metals during the formation of ore deposits.
We invite researchers to contribute to the Special Issue: “Development of W-Sn and Rare-Metal Metallogenic Systems in the an Orogenic Belt”.Prof. Dr. Michel Cuney
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.
