Name: Deru XU (许德如)
Position: Research Professor
Department: Key Laboratory of Mineralogy and Metallogeny, CAS


Dr. Deru Xu's major research fields focus on both the geodynamics of continental margin and its relationship to metallogeny, and the ore-field structure and its prediction on mineral resources, main research work covering geological structure in ore-field, ore deposit, predicting and prospecting on mineral resources, and ore genesis. In recent years Deru Xu have been responsible for and undertaken a series of projects related to metallogenic disciplinarian and prediction on different scales in South China and comprehensive study on tectonic evolution of southeast Tethyan domain and its respondence to metallogeny. The highlight of Xu's research interest is focusing on the ore-field structures and prediction on mineral resources. 

Xu's publications represented by a book entitled Metallogenic Model and Ore Predicating of the Shilu Iron-Ore Deposit in Hainan Island, South China (2009) and more than 50 journal papers.
