Geometallurgy's Impact on Innovation, Efficiency, and Sustainability in Mining

Geometallurgy, a vibrant and continuously evolving interdisciplinary field, is positioned at the forefront of transforming the traditional contours of mining engineering. The synergy of geological, metallurgical, and various engineering principles within Geometallurgy offers a comprehensive and integrative approach to the exploration, extraction, and processing of mineral resources. As this field gains increasing prominence, its influence on reshaping the landscape of mining engineering becomes pivotal, introducing innovation, efficiency, and sustainability throughout the entire mining life cycle. The International Journal of Mining, Reclamation and Environment recognizes the paramount importance of Geometallurgy and is excited to announce a Special Issue dedicated to exploring the latest developments and breakthroughs in this field. We seek contributions that not only reflect the current state of Geometallurgy but also push the boundaries of knowledge, addressing critical aspects such as resource estimation, mine planning, and sustainable mining practices. The emphasis of this Special Issue is to provide a comprehensive platform for researchers, scholars, and industry experts to share their insights and advancements in Geometallurgy. We encourage submissions that delve into innovative approaches to resource estimation, leveraging cutting-edge modelling techniques and the integration of advanced technologies. Furthermore, we welcome contributions that explore the intricate relationship between Geometallurgy and mine planning, highlighting optimization strategies, novel technologies, and considerations for the effective design and operation of mining projects.
