Special Issue "Integrated Chronology Studies of Ore Deposits"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 October 2019).
We enthusiastically invite papers that integrate at least two or more different radiogenic isotope chronometers used to define ore genesis of any deposit type. Ideally, the papers will have chronologic data measured in ores and silicate/host minerals and/or rocks. Geochronologic studies of this nature will illustrate the importance of the following hypotheses regarding the genesis of ore deposits: The duration of mineralization, the importance of singular events, the importance of multiple superimposed events, and timing of mineralization within geologically complicated areas. Several chronometers also provide sources of magmas and metals, and these ideas are encouraged to be integrated within the argument.

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.
