Alcalde, J., Carbonell, R., Pospiech, S., Gil, A., Bullock, L. A., & Tornos, F. (2022). Preface: State of the art in mineral exploration. Solid Earth, 13(7), 1161–1168.


This special issue is intended to bring together new insights into the state of the art in mineral exploration using a variety of developing or evolving techniques, including passive and active seismic tomography, magnetic and multispectral remote sensing, and geochemical vector, alteration, and anomaly mapping applications. As well as a broad disciplinary focus, the special issue also includes a wide geographic analysis, with studies spread across four continents (Fig. 2). The scientific contributions assembled here provide a detailed assessment of the current state of exploration and an indication of the direction in which mineral exploration is headed in the remaining years of the 21st century.
