Special Issue Information
Gold continues to be a critical commodity with the supply–demand balance and is providing economic stability worldwide. Auriferous deposits have been classified in a number of ways over 40 years. Current genetic types of gold deposits mainly comprise the epithermal, carlin-type, porphyry and skarn, IOCG, and orogenic, with subordinate placer-type, laterite-type, VMS, and magmatic. They are comprehensively constrained by the deposit geology, tectonic setting, ore fluid temperature and salinity, and multiple systems of isotopes. These studies provide a good way of understanding ore-forming process and guiding mineral exploration.
This Special Issue aims at displaying recent achievements in the research of geology, fluid inclusions, isotopic geochemistry, and mineralogy of gold deposits. We welcome studies on the ore genesis of different ore systems, including ore fluids evolution, high-precision dating, ore-forming process, as well as ore-related magmatism, deformation, and related tectonics. We also solicit methodological studies employing in situ analytics that can reflect the ore-forming fluid sources, metallogenic age, and precipitation mechanism.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2000 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.
