We invite everyone working in the fields of Mining and Economic Geology to present the latest scientific results on European ore districts in this session at the conference. The focus of the session is directed at both, new discoveries in European countries and historic mining districts revisited. The investigation of potentials of metals in primary deposits and mine residues, as well as the development of innovative concepts for exploration activities for mineral deposits, mining and ore processing are highly appreciated and welcome. Contributions may also cover all topics of research on formation conditions of metal ore deposits, and their spatial and temporal distribution.
