I am pleased to announce a Special Issue on "Geochemistry and Mineralogy of Hydrothermal Metallic Mineral Deposits." The geochemical and mineralogical variation both within and among hydrothermal ore deposits are key attributes. Our understanding of these attributes, for both ore and gangue, play an important role in carrying out exploration and drilling programs in order to find and characterize mineral resources, designing of mines and mineral processing facilities, evaluating environmental impact and providing engineered mitigation solutions, developing genetic models, and more. This Special Issue is seeking contributions of original research that present new geochemical and mineralogical data from hydrothermal metallic mineral deposit systems; in particular, studies that highlight how this type of data can advance our understanding of one or more of the wide range of outstanding fundamental and applied questions.

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.
