Economic Geology makes advances in the sustainable exploration of ore, mineral and other earth materials freely available through our open-access online platform.
In a changing world, economic geology is not only about supporting our current energy demands but also expanding research to support our energy needs of the future via the precious minerals required for battery development, satellite communications, and other smart technologies.
“I welcome cutting edge research to reviews in the field of mineral resources helping to promote a greater understanding of the importance of research, both past and present, in this fundamentally important field”, says Professor David Lentz, incoming Specialty Chief Editor and University of New Brunswick Research Chair in Economic Geology.
