Mining in Ecologically Sensitive Landscapes

1st Edition

Featured

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

1st Edition

Featured

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...

Rotary Drilling and Blasting in Large Surface Mines

1st Edition

Bhalchandra V. Gokhale
September 04, 2018

In large surface mining operations, drilling and blasting activities constitute more than 15% of the total costs. In order to optimize performance and minimize costs, a thorough knowledge of drill and blast operations is, therefore, extremely important. In this unique reference volume, rotary...

2nd Edition

Ratan Raj Tatiya
August 10, 2018

Surface and Underground Excavations – Methods, Techniques and Equipment (2nd edition) covers the latest technologies and developments in the excavation arena at any locale: surface or underground. In the first few chapters, unit operations are discussed and subsequently, excavation techniques are...

Rock Mass Response to Mining Activities: Inferring Large-Scale Rock Mass Failure

1st Edition

Tadeusz Szwedzicki
June 21, 2018

Mining activities may result in rock mass deterioration and instability that may lead to failure both in underground and open pit mines. Such deterioration represents a safety risk and may result in substantial financial losses. Rock mass response may lead to ground subsidence, fall of ground/...

Gold Metallurgy and the Environment

1st Edition

Sadia Ilyas, Jae-chun Lee
March 02, 2018

This book gives an overview of all the gold extraction processes along with their mechanistic study and environmental impact. Different approaches in gold extraction are discussed including traditional pyrometallurgy, amalgamation, leaching by cyanide or non-cyanide lixiviants and emerging...

Geomechanics of Mine Workings Support Systems

1st Edition

Volodymyr Bondarenko, Iryna Kovalevska, Hennadiy Symanovych, Mykhaylo Barabash, Oleksandr Vivcharenko
February 08, 2018

The book presents an objective and adequate reflection of the geomechanical loading processes of elements of various types of mine workings support systems, including modern designs of roof bolts and compressible frame-and-bolt supports. Calculations of the interaction processes of the frame, roof...

Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design in Weak Rocks

1st Edition

Derek Martin, Peter Stacey
December 08, 2017

Weak rocks encountered in open pit mines cover a wide variety of materials, with properties ranging between soil and rock. As such, they can provide a significant challenge for the slope designer. For these materials, the mass strength can be the primary control in the design of the pit slopes,...
