This textbook sets the standard for university-level instruction of mining engineering principles. With a thoughtful balance of theory and application, it gives students a practical working knowledge of the various concepts presented. Its utility extends beyond the classroom as a valuable field reference for practicing engineers and those preparing for the Professional Engineers Exam in Mining Engineering.
This practical guidebook covers virtually all aspects of successful mine design and operations. It is an excellent reference for engineering students who are studying mine design or who require guidance in assembling a mine-design project, and industry professionals who require a comprehensive mine-design reference book. Topics include everything from mine preplanning to ventilation to pumping, power, and hauling systems. The text presents widely accepted principles that promote safe, efficient, and profitable mining operations.
The book is an excellent text and self-study guide. Each chapter is organized to demonstrate how to apply various equations to solve day-to-day operational challenges. In addition, each chapter offers a series of practice problems with solutions.
