Mining in Ecologically Sensitive Landscapes


Mark Tibbett
August 18, 2015

Mining in Ecologically Sensitive Landscapes explores the interface between geology and botany, and mining and conservation. Many areas of unusual geology that contain ore-bearing bodies also support unique ecological communities of plants and animals. Increasing demand to exploit rich mineral deposi...

Discrete Simulation and Animation for Mining Engineers


John R. Sturgul
September 10, 2015

General Purpose Simulation System (GPSS) is a special computer programming language primarily used to simulate what can be classified as discrete systems. A discrete system is one where, at any given instant in time, a countable number of things can take place. The basic operation of a mine itself c...

True Triaxial Testing of Rocks

Marek Kwasniewski, Xiaochun Li, Manabu Takahashi
March 31, 2017

This is the first book ever published on the problems of true triaxial testing of rocks addressing all aspects of true triaxial testing of rocks, including: (i) true triaxial testing techniques and procedures; (ii) test results: strength, deformability, failure mode, permeability, acoustic emission...

Statistics for Mining Engineering

Jacek M. Czaplicki
March 31, 2017

Many areas of mining engineering gather and use statistical information, provided by observing the actual operation of equipment, their systems, the development of mining works, surface subsidence that accompanies underground mining, displacement of rocks surrounding surface pits and underground...

Rock Fall Engineering

Duncan C. Wyllie
March 31, 2017

Rock falls can be a public safety issue. This book provides comprehensive information on identification of these hazards, and design and construction of protection methods. Rock Fall Engineering describes first, the theoretical background to rock fall behavior in terms of the impact and trajectory...

Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

Anatoly D. Alexeev
March 30, 2017

Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch...

Minerals and Coal Process Calculations

D.V. Subba Rao
December 05, 2016

The aim of process calculations is to evaluate the performance of minerals and coal processing operations in terms of efficiency of the operation, grade of the final products and recovery of the required constituents. To meet these requirements, in-depth detailed calculations are illustrated in...

The Chemistry and Technology of Coal, Third Edition

James G. Speight
November 16, 2016

The demand for coal use (for electricity generation) and coal products, particularly liquid fuels and chemical feedstocks, is increasing throughout the world. Traditional markets such as North America and Europe are experiencing a steady increase in demand whereas emerging Asian markets, such as...
