Special Issue Information
Backfill mining technology can not only deal with mine waste on a large scale but also effectively control mining subsidence and protect surface buildings and the ecological environment. Filling materials play an important role in backfill mining and have an important influence on the filling effect. This Special Issue invites research and review articles on filling material across research fields which may include (but are not limited to) the following: (1) mechanical strength optimization, rheological properties, deformation characteristics, and damage mechanism of filling materials; (2) the heat, products, and mechanism analysis of hydration reaction of backfill materials; (3) development and performance testing of backfilling materials with mine solid waste, such as fly ash cemented filling materials, geopolymers, and alkali-activated materials; (4) the development and performance testing of functional backfill materials, such as heat storage and release functional backfill materials, and water purifying backfill materials; and (5) all above materials advanced applications in coal mining.

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.
