This SME classic is both a reference book for the working engineer and a textbook for the mining student. The hardcover edition gives a brief history of surface mining and a general overview of the state of surface mining today--topics range from production and productivity to technological developments and trends in equipment.

This useful text takes the approach that exploration and mining geologists must be expert in a number of fields, including basic finance and economics, logistics, and pragmatic prospecting. Readers will find material on all these topics and more.

The book's nine chapters include:

  • Introduction,
  • Exploration and Geology Techniques,
  • Ore Reserve Estimation,
  • Feasibility Studies and Project Financing,
  • Planning and Design of Surface Mines,
  • Mine Operations,
  • Mine Capital and Operating Costs,
  • Management and Organization, and
  • Case Studies.

    The book is fully indexed.
