About the book
The modern mining industry is very responsive to innovation and new technologies that aid in reducing costs, delivering more acceptable mining solutions, environmental outcomes, and providing mine workers with a safer workplace. The aim of this edited book is to showcase new technologies and innovations within the various phases of the mining cycle. It also aims to highlight how the modern mining company and mining professional exercises community, cultural and environmental responsibility in her/his role and activities. We are also looking for chapters showcasing new technologies involved in mining education and training. New techniques recently invoked during the global COVID-19 pandemic are also encouraged, from all phases of the mining cycle. These techniques may range from the use of digital 3D- visualization and other interactive training software products used to assist learning and those used to install a safer workplace culture. Globally, postmining landscapes are coming under increased scrutiny, both legacy and existing mines. Case studies of these rehabilitated landscapes are particularly welcomed where they can show or highlight new technologies and innovative practices to gain positive environmental outcomes.
