The five papers that follow this brief introduction focus on giant porphyry Cu systems. Porphyry Cu deposits are some of the larger and better understood ore deposits on earth. Studies on porphyry Cu deposits published in Economic Geology in the past two years indicate that interest in these deposits continues on a wide range of topics, including resource assessment (Gerst, 2008; Wilkinson and Kesler, 2009), geology (Perelló et al., 2008; Valencia et al., 2008), geochemistry (Audétat et al., 2008; Becker et al., 2008; Rusk et al., 2008; Gammons et...
