A corrigendum on

The mineral question: how energy and technology will determine the future of mining
by Bardi U (2013). Front. Energy Res. 1:9. doi:10.3389/fenrg.2013.00009

A concept has been mistakenly attributed to the authors of the book while it should have been attributed to the authors of an article in it. The reference of the following sentence should therefore be Valero et al., 2010 rather than Stanek et al., 2010.

‘The exergy of mineral deposits can be referenced to a “zero level” state that corresponds to the average concentration of the elements of the ore in the crust.’

The References change also accordingly:

Valero, A. L., Valero, A., and Martínez, A. (2010). Inventory of the exergy resources on earth including its mineral capital. Energy 35, 989–995. doi:10.1016/j.energy.2009.06.036

Instead of

Stanek, W., Valero, A., Valero, A., and Martínez, A. (2010). Inventory of the exergy resources on earth including its mineral capital. Energy 35, 989–995. doi:10.1016/j.energy.2009.06.036
