    A Tribute to Frank Christopher Hawthorne
    Editors : L.A. Groat
    Volume 54, Part 1, 2017

    This thematic issue of The Canadian Mineralogist is in honour of Prof. Frank C. Hawthorne and his extraordinary contributions to mineralogy and crystallography. The issue is appropriately huge - 372 pages - and includes sixteen articles on a variety of topics as diverse as Frank’s own career. The preface describes Frank's accomplishments and impact. His early interest in amphiboles is well represented by articles concerning the crystal chemistry of synthetic amphiboles, partitioning of chlorine into ferro-pargasite, synthetic potassic-ferro-richterite, and magnesio-hastingsite. His work on the crystal chemistry of rock-forming minerals is represented by papers on Cs-bearing beryl and fibrous tourmaline. A lengthy article revising and expanding the structure hierarchy of natural and synthetic hexavalent uranium compounds constitutes a major contribution to the field of structure hierarchies, where Frank was an early leader, developing hierarchies for several other classes of minerals. Frank's work interpreting the topological aspects of crystal structures is honoured by two papers on the TS-block minerals. Of course, the fundamental work of describing and revising the structures of new minerals is also represented by five articles. In recognition of the broad impact of Frank's work, the issue also includes papers on the evolution of structural complexity in boron minerals and surface precipitates and adsorption complexes in remediated soils. These articles constitute a worthy tribute to Frank's accomplishments and impact, and we hope that our readers enjoy the 'Frank Hawthorne Issue'.

    A Tribute John Leslie Jambor
    Editors : R.F. Martin
    Volume 53, Part 5, 2015

    The September 2015 issue (volume 53, part 5) is a thematic one, dedicated to John Leslie Jambor (1936–2008), second editor of The Canadian Mineralogist. The issue is a fitting tribute, as it contains thirteen articles on themes central to John’s interests during his career. In the first contribution, Luca Bindi and his team reestablish the validity of jamborite as a mineral species. They show that jamborite contains sulfate groups, a finding that is very fitting, as John maintained a fondness for sulfates ever since he defined gunningite, a sulfate of zinc. It was the first of 34 new species that he proposed to the IMA during his career. There are additional articles on minerals and mineral structures, including ore minerals, always a focus in John’s work. The article on owyheeite recalls John’s membership in what might be called “the sulfosalt club”. John carried out the early characterization of ore assemblages in the Strange Lake peralkaline granite, Quebec–Labrador; his findings are reviewed here. The issue also contains an article on an anomalous distribution of Cr in clinopyroxene from Mont Royal and another on interstratified nickeliferous lizardite - clinochlore. Finally, there are three articles on the theme of mineralogy applied to mine wastes, which held so much of John’s attention late in his career.

    Pegmatitic Phosphate: A Tribute to François Fontan, André-Mathieu Fransolet, and Paul Keller
    Editors : P. Vignola, F. Hatert, E. Roda-Robles, W.B. Simmons Jr, C. A. Francis
    Volume 52, Part 2, 2014

    This thematic issue of The Canadian Mineralogist deals with pegmatitic phosphates. It is dedicated to three exceptional researchers who have contributed enormously to the advancement of our knowledge of pegmatitic phosphates over the last three decades: François Fontan, Paul Keller, and André-Mathieu Fransolet. These researchers worked individually and jointly, always in an enthusiastic, effective, and tireless way. They passed on their knowledge and interest in phosphates to many younger researchers. Phosphate minerals are important and interesting accessories in granitic pegmatites, where they occur as well-formed crystals in miarolitic cavities or as masses that in some instances can reach gigantic proportions. Despite being of negligible economic interest, these accessories are sought by mineral collectors and museums and they are of key importance in understanding the petrologic processes involving both single pegmatite dikes and entire pegmatitic swarms or fields. Generally, pegmatitic phosphates occur as very complex associations of primary and secondary phosphate mineral species; they typically show intricate textures revealing the geological history of the host pegmatite

    Tourmaline: An Ideal Indicator of its Host Environment
    Editors : V. J. van Hinsberg, D. J. Henry, H. R. Marschall, R.F. Martin
    Volume 49, Part 1, 2011

    Tourmaline-group minerals are ubiquitous accessory minerals in rocks of the Earth’s crust. They can adjust their composition to suit a wide variety of environments, and therefore they display a remarkable stability range in terms of pressure, temperature, fluid composition, and host-rock composition. Because of this compositional sensitivity, tourmaline is an excellent indicator of the environmental conditions affecting its host. The 24 papers in this thematic issue of The Canadian Mineralogist highlight the exciting possibilities offered by these properties and demonstrate that we are on the brink of a major breakthrough in the use of tourmaline as a quantitative indicator of the chemical and physical properties of its host environment.

    Contaminated Granites
    Editors : B. Clarke, S. Paterson, R. Vernon, R.F. Martin
    Volume 45, Part 1, 2007

    This issue of The Canadian Mineralogist (Volume 45, No.1) presents a thematic set of papers on “Contaminated Granites” edited by Barrie Clarke, Scott Paterson, and Ron Vernon. Petrogenetic investigations should always consider granites not so much as the products of crystallization of pristine melts, but as mixtures of such melts and a variety of other components (solid, liquid, vapour) that have contaminated them. Only when we can confidently determine the magnitude of contamination, and are able to subtract its effects, will we be able to understand what the granite magma itself has to say.

    Seafloor Hydrothermal Mineralization
    Editors : T.L. Barrett, J.L. Jambor
    Volume 26, Part 3, 1988

    The discovery of active seafloor hydrothermal systems has had a major impact on the field of economic geology. Indeed, the study of these natural laboratories has led to a substantial refinement of our models of ore-forming processes, particularly as applied to volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits. After a review of hydrothermal mineralization at oceanic ridges, this thematic issue examines hydrothermal processes at the Eastern and Northeastern Pacific Ridges, at the Mid-Atlantic and Mid-Indian Ridges, and at the Red Sea Rift.
