Special Issue "Iron Oxide-Copper-gold (IOCG) Deposits"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 April 2019)
Prof. Fernando Henriquez
The discovery of the Olympic Dam, and its definition as a new type of copper deposit with important resources and other commodities (Fe, Au, U) and Iron Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) deposits, has caused great interest in formation processes and characteristic guidelines that are useful for their exploration. New discoveries have emphasized a hydrothermal origin of these deposits but the metal source, and especially the relationship with IOA (Iron oxide-apatite, or Kiruna type) deposits, are still discussed. This Special Issue aims to bring together new discoveries, studies in the areas of mineralogy, alteration, genesis, classification and structural control, and to review the current state-of-the-art in terms of knowledge. We welcome studies from all these areas, including new geological models and exploration guides.Prof. Fernando Henriquez
