The global mineral processing community faces significant challenges, ranging from technological to environmental and economic issues. The mineral processing community has confronted and solved such challenges over the centuries and has thereby delivered important contributions to the clean and efficient use of our mineral resources. This Special Issue aims to collect high quality research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on a wide range of topics concerning mineral processing. The Special Issue will publish selected papers from the 2nd International Conference of Young Scholars in Mineral Processing, 21–23 August, 2017, in Changchun, China. The key objective of the 2nd International Conference of Young Scholars in Mineral Processing is to share the latest developments in mineral processing activities, developments, and research in China and beyond. We invite professionals from the mineral processing industry and practitioners, people from research institutions, as well as academic scholars and researchers to attend this conference. We are cordially inviting you to join us at the conference and also to submit your manuscript to this Special Issue.

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.
