An introductory text and reference on mining engineering highlighting the latest in mining technology

Introductory Mining Engineering outlines the role of the mining engineer throughout the life of a mine, including prospecting for the deposit, determining the site's value, developing the mine, extracting the mineral values, and reclaiming the land afterward. This Second Edition is written with a focus on sustainability-managing land to meet the economic and environmental needs of the present while enhancing its ability to also meet the needs of future generations. Coverage includes aboveground and underground methods of mining for a wide range of substances, including metals, nonmetals, and fuels.

Completely up to date, this book presents the latest information on such technologies as remote sensing, GPS, geophysical surveying, and mineral deposit evaluation, as well as continuous integrated mining operations and autonomous trucks. Also included is new information on landscape restoration, regional planning, wetlands protection, subsidence mitigation, and much more.

New chapters include coverage of:

* Environmental responsibilities

* Regulations

* Health and safety issues

Generously supplemented with more than 200 photographs, drawings, and tables, Introductory Mining Engineering, Second Edition is an indispensable book for mining engineering students and a comprehensive reference for professionals.

Book News Annotation:

Hartman (mining engineering, U. of Alabama) and Mutmansky (emeritus, mining engineering, Pennsylvania State U. at University Park) have two primary aims in the presentation of the second edition of their mining textbook: to familiarize readers with the minerals industry and to aid in the selection of the optimal methods for the specified conditions. To achieve those goals they present 14 chapters covering mining and its consequences, prospecting and exploration, development and exploitation, unit operations of mining, surface mine development, mechanical extraction methods, aqueous extraction methods, underground mine development, unsupported and supported methods in underground mining, caving methods, and novel methods and technology.
