Publisher Comments: This comprehensive reference work distills the entire body of knowledge that characterizes mining engineering as a disciplinary field. While it may serve as a textbook for advanced students, its primary function is to provide professional practitioners with an authoritative reference and design source. The book also serves mining nonprofessionals who seek technical knowledge of the industry.
