Geology of Ore Deposits (Geologiya rudnykh mestorozhdenii) is a periodical covering metallic and nonmetallic mineral deposits, their formation conditions, and spatial and temporal distribution. Founded in 1959, the journal publishes original scientific articles and reviews on a wide range of problems in theoretical and applied geology. The journal focuses on the following problems: deep geological structure and geodynamic environment of ore formation; distribution pattern of metallogenic zones and mineral deposits; geology and formation environment of large and unique metallic and nonmetallic deposits; mineralogy of metallic and nonmetallic deposits; physicochemical and isotopic characteristics and geochemical environment of ore deposition; evolution of ore-forming systems; radiogeology and radioecology, economic problems in exploring, developing, and mining of ore commodities.
