Mining in Ecologically Sensitive Landscapes

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

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...

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...

Sheila Devasahayam, Kim Dowling, Manoj K. Mahapatra
September 07, 2016

Sustainable practices within the mining and energy sectors are assuming greater significance due to uncertainty and change within the global economy and safety, security, and health concerns. This book examines sustainability issues facing the mining and energy sectors by addressing six major...

Mining in the Himalayas: An Integrated Strategy

A.K. Soni
September 01, 2016

Himalaya, the world's most prominent mountain system of the world is a source of sustainence for the social, cultural and economic development of population across different countries. Unscientific, small-scale mining for harnessing reounrces including minerals has caused ecosystem damage....

Utah Oil Shale: Science, Technology, and Policy Perspectives

Jennifer Spinti
August 02, 2016

Includes full-color isopach and richness maps for each organic-rich and organic-lean oil shale interval within the upper Green River Formation. Offers computational exploration of trade-offs in drilling and heating options on the net energy return for oil produced from an in situ process. Analyzes...

Coal Processing and Utilization

D.V. Subba Rao, T. Gouricharan
May 17, 2016

This book is a direct outgrowth of classes that the authors gave over a period of three decades to a university audience taking a Mineral Beneficiation course as a major that included coal processing and utilization. It is designed to be used as a student’s (or layman’s) first introduction to coal...

M.R. Riazi, Rajender Gupta
November 23, 2015

Coal Production and Processing Technology provides uniquely comprehensive coverage of the latest coal technologies used in everything from mining to greenhouse gas mitigation. Featuring contributions from experts in industry and academia, this book: Discusses coal geology, characterization,...

Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

Prabhat Chandra Chandra
October 19, 2015

In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often...
