Special Issue "Mining and Mineral Exploration Geophysics"
A special issue of Minerals (ISSN 2075-163X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2018)

Emerging developments in the field of near surface geophysics are increasingly benefiting a wide range of mining and mineral exploration activities. Geophysical methods provide a means of spatially characterizing and monitoring the subsurface, which is particularly valuable in settings with complex ground conditions where intrusive methods alone can be inadequate. This Special Issue aims to highlight novel geophysical techniques, modelling approaches, and applications to address mining related issues—including mineral exploration, mine planning, tailings and mine waste characterisation and monitoring, slope stability assessment and groundwater management. We welcome studies relating to all geophysical techniques, including airborne, ground-based and borehole methods.

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.
