From feasibility studies to design, implementation and mining operations, our theoretical and practical books and journals on Mining Engineering will support students and professionals through the entire process from exploration and discovery to eventual mine closure.
The International Journal of Mining, Reclamation and Environment published research on mining and environmental technology engineering relating to metalliferous deposits, coal, oil sands, and industrial minerals.
Mineral Processing and Extractive Metallurgy Review publishes both theoretical and practical papers relevant to technical, economic, and environmental issues in the handling, processing, and utilization of minerals. In addition to regular issues, special issues focusing on subjects of regional and topical significance will be published when the Editor feels there is sufficient interest among readers.
Mining Technology is devoted to all aspects of underground, opencast, and offshore mining operations, including: Mining finance, mining economics and evaluation, mineral resources management, planning control and mining law; Mine design and development, operational techniques, mining machinery, environmental issues, mine management and organization, production and education and training
This book provides a systematic assessment of how the mining and materials sector contributes to the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) set forth by the United Nations in 2015. While the target date for reaching these goals of 2030 is considered a benchmark, the book looks beyond this date and considers a longer-term vision.
The history of mining is replete with controversy of which much is related to environmental damage and consequent community outrage. Over recent decades, this has led to increased pressure to improve the environmental and social performance of mining operations, particularly in developing countries. The industry has responded by embracing the ideals of sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
The study of rock dynamics is important because many rock mechanics and rock engineering problems involve dynamic loading ranging from earthquakes to vibrations and explosions. The subject deals with the distribution and propagation of loads, dynamic responses, and processes of rocks and rate-dependent properties, coupled with the physical environment.
