Technology Innovation in Underground Construction

Richly-illustrated reference guide presenting innovative techniques focused on reducing time, cost and risk in the construction and maintenance of underground facilities.

Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design

This important book is an outcome of an international project on the stability of rock slopes in open pit mines, and is designed to link innovative mining geomechanics research with best practice

Mining Economics and Strategy

Economic skill is an essential partner to technical skill in every step of the mining process. An economic "mindset" begins before the first drill hole. This new book will help you effectively direct mining operations through the use of innovative economic strategies.

Geological Engineering

Interpreting a geological setting for the purposes of engineering design and construction requires knowledge of geological engineering and engineering geology, leading to integrated engineering solutions which take into account both ground conditions and environment. This textbook, extensively illustrated, covers the subject area of geological engineering in four sections.

Mining Technology

Mining Technology (Trans. IMM A incorporating Proc. AusIMM) is devoted to all aspects of underground, opencast and offshore mining operations. Coverage of mining operations and properties is particularly strong, focusing on the reasons for the methods and techniques employed and possible future developments.

Introduction to Cut-off Grade Estimation

An Introduction to Cut-off Grade Estimation includes dozens of charts, graphs, and mathematical formulas to explain basic concepts in a simple, step-by-step fashion. It is a "must read" for mine managers, analysts, geologists, mining engineers, and public policymakers who want to stay on the leading edge of their profession.

Coal Mine Ground Control, Third Edition

Finally, a complete and authoritative reference on U.S. coal mining methods

Mine Design: Examples Using Simulation

Solve everyday mining problems quickly and easily by applying the computer lanaguage GPSS (General Purpose Simulation System). Part I of the book reviews mining simulation in general and describes why the GPSS/H simulation language was selected. Part II is an overview of the language itself to help you obtain maximum benefit from the mining examples, which are contained on the included CD.

Industrial Minerals and Extractive Industry Geology

Industrial Minerals, including construction raw materials, provides the bulk of the solid minerals required by most developed countries, both in tonnage and value. In other countries, the discovery and extraction of industrial minerals is an essential stage in economic development. This book contains a comprehensive coverage of the subjects that occupy professional geoscientists working in industrial minerals and the extractive industry. It includes descriptions of the geology of many deposits, country and regional reviews of industrial minerals, mineral economics, case histories of extraction, techniques for exploration and evaluation, examples of quarry and pit design, risk management, minerals planning/permitting and legislation, the environmental impact of mineral extraction, and mine waste and by-product utilization. The book results from a unique international event which combined the 36th North American Forum on the geology of Industrial Minerals with the 11th UK Extractive Industry Geology Conference. Papers by leading experts from industry, consultancies, government bodies and academia, based in Europe, North America and elsewhere are included. The book will appeal to all professional geoscientists involved with industrial minerals and the extractive industry and others, including mining engineers, planners, mineral economists and environmental geoscientists.

Extracting the Science: A Century of Mining Research

Extracting the Science: A Century of Mining Research is an authoritative compilation of research and a description of technological achievements written especially for mine operators, researchers, faculty and students of mining education programs, as well as for regulators and enforcement agencies-indeed, anyone concerned with improving the health and safety of mine workers while furthering mine productivity.

SME Mining Reference Handbook

Engineers are often called on to answer technical questions and solve problems while in the field. It's not always feasible to bring along the bulky reference materials needed to research engineering-related topics.

Great Basin Evolution and Metallogeny - DEStech Publications

This book comprises over 60 original and fully refereed technical presentations focused on geological analysis and testing of rocks, ores, minerals and elements correlated with gold mineralization and mining in the Great Basin region of the United States. Detailed geological data derived from advanced techniques is supplied for dozens of proven and currently explored mineral-rich areas in Nevada, California, Idaho, Utah, Washington and Alaska, as well as in Mexico and Chile.

Geology for Civil Engineers

Preface to the second edition. Preface to the first edition. Introduction. Minerals and rocks. Superficial deposits. Distribution of rocks at and below the surface. Subsurface (ground) water. Geological exploration of an engineering site. Rocks and civil engineering. Principal geological factors affecting certain engineering projects.

The Mining Valuation Handbook: Australian Mining and Energy Valuation for Investors and Management , 2nd Edition

The mining industry is vital to the Australian economy, accounting for around 32% of annual exports. The Mining Valuation Handbook is the most comprehensive book published on this subject. This Premium Finance edition has been fully revised, expanded and updated.

Engineering Geology and Construction

Winner of the 2004 Claire P. Holdredge Award of the Association of Engineering Geologists (USA). The only book to concentrate on the relationship between geology and its implications for construction, this book covers the full scope of the subject from site investigation through to the complexities of reservoirs and dam sites

Light Metals 2010: Proceeding of the Technical Sessions Presented by the TMS Aluminum Committee at the TMS 2010 Annual Meeting and Exhibition

Light Metals 2010 presents the most up-to-date information on the state of primary aluminum science and technology. It's a great mix of practical applied technology and hard science, which is of invaluable benefit to the global aluminum industry as it strives to cut costs and increase profitability.

Canadian Metallurgical Quarterly

Canadian Metallurgical Quarterly publishes original contributions on all aspects of metallurgy and materials science, including mineral processing, hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, materials processing, physical metallurgy and the service behaviour of materials. An invaluable resource for international researchers engaged in interdisciplinary research in metallurgy and materials science.

Biomining

Biomining is the biotechnology that uses microorganisms to recover metals, in particular copper and gold, from ores and concentrates. Having developed from a very simple operational process, biomining has developed into a multi-faceted technology, to the extent that many of the largest industrial stirred tanks and heaps throughout the world are employed for biomining minerals
