Mining Techniques

Past, Present and Future

Edited by Abhay Soni

Central Institute of Mining and Fuel Research

Mining techniques have evolved over time, culminating in the well-defined field of “mining science,” which encompasses aspects such as engineering, chemistry, physics, technology, and management, among others. This book explains how mining techniques can be handled and improved further to make mining practices far more productive, safe, and eco-friendly. It is a useful resource for researchers, students, policy formulators, and decision-makers in different areas of mining and engineering.
