Mineral Exploration Methods and Applications

A section of Minerals (ISSN 2075-163X).

Section Information

The Mineral Exploration Methods and Applications Section welcomes papers related to all aspects of mineral resources, including geological, geophysical, geochemical methods, and satellite imagery. We invite contributions on historical, technical, and practical aspects of exploration for mineral deposits. The papers should either focus on a novel methodology of mineral exploration or present the case studies where the established or innovative techniques were successfully used. In addition, we welcome contributions providing new insight into the foundations of geological, geophysical, and geochemical methods. The publications can be dedicated to field procedures and analytical techniques of geochemical exploration methods. Novel methods of gravity, magnetic, electromagnetic, radiometric, and seismic prospecting and their integration, including mathematical aspects of data processing and interpretation, as well as studies on remote sensing and geographic information system in mineral exploration, are welcome. Airborne, ground, and borehole methods could be presented. We also encourage the submission of papers which report rock sample studies required for mineral exploration and propose new physical, chemical, and mineralogical techniques for identifying the mineral targets.
