Mining statistics including mining operation and mineral and petroleum exploration.
Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that applies science and technology to the extraction of minerals from the earth. Mining engineering is associated with many other disciplines, such as mineral processing, Exploration, Excavation, geology, and metallurgy, geotechnical engineering and surveying.A mining engineer may manage any phase of mining operations from exploration and
Mineral A mineral is a naturally occurring inorganic element of compound having an orderly internal structure and characteristic chemical composition, crystal form, and physical properties. Minerals may be metallic, like gold, or nonmetallic, such as talc. Coal, oil, and natural gas are generally considered to be “energy minerals.
Mineral Titles Online (MTO) provides details of mineral exploration and mining tenements throughout Western Australia. In addition customers have the ability to perform a large portion of their business transactions with the department’s Mineral Titles Division through the MTO system, as well as order, pay for and receive tenement title searches online.
In determining the correct value of the mineral for royalty purposes you must apply the royalty assessment principles as outlined in section 17(5) of the Mining Act 1971. In addition the market value of the minerals must be ascertained through the application of sections 17(6) to 17(8) of the Act.
The Friends of Australian Mining Network is a supporter network developed by the Minerals Council of Australia to provide a stronger voice for mining, our workforce and regional communities. We are inviting people who are involved in the mining industry through direct employment, friends or family connection or community involvement, to join us and become
Victoria's mining history. Since the discovery of gold in Victoria in 1851, mineral resources have played a central role in our economic and cultural expansion. More than 5,000 licences have been granted under the minerals legislative regime and approximately 40 percent of the state is covered by exploration licences.
1990s Gold mining activity in Victoria escalated sharply, with new mines opening and a significant increase in the level of expenditure on exploration. Information available through the Victorian Initiative for Minerals and Petroleum (VIMP) has acted as a catalyst for a rise in the number of applications for exploration licences in surveyed
This is a list of minerals for which there are articles on Wikipedia.. Minerals are distinguished by various chemical and physical properties. Differences in chemical composition and crystal structure distinguish the various species.Within a mineral species there may be variation in physical properties or minor amounts of impurities that are recognized by mineralogists or
Mining has been a part of the Earth’s history since prehistoric times. Mining has played a role throughout the millennia from Neanderthals’ use of stone, to ancient Egyptians’, Greeks’, Romans’ and Incans’ more sophisticated mining processes and uses of mined materials. From the Industrial Age and the ability of mass production, societies’ progress has led to our Modern

When the mineral seam becomes exposed, it is drilled, fractured and the mineral recovered for processing. Open-cut mining can be more effective than underground methods, generally recovering 90% of a mineral deposit, and accounts for about 65% of raw coal production in NSW. Open-cut mining is also used for some gold and copper production in NSW.
Mineral exploration is the process of searching for deposits of useful minerals. In South Australia minerals are the property of the Crown. The Mining Act 1971 (the Act) and Regulations made under the Act are the principal laws in place for the administration of exploration titles and the regulation of on-ground exploration activities, including environmental management and

Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes. These processes also have an impact on the atmosphere from the emissions of carbon which have
Placer mining is used to sift out valuable metals from sediments in river channels, beach sands, or other environments. In-situ mining, which is primarily used in mining uranium, involves dissolving the mineral resource in place then processing it at the surface without moving rock from the ground.
Mining has a large impact on the environment because minerals are contained within the Earth. Earth must be removed in order to extract the minerals. When the minerals are close to the surface, the earth is removed, causing destruction to the shape of the land and the flora and fauna living in that area.;
The minerals industry value-chain represents the stages and processes that a minerals project will go through to produce mineral products. Each stage represents a value-add on the previous and there are opportunities to invest at each of the major stages:
Australian mining companies understand land rehabilitation is part of responsible mining. We recognise our responsibility as a temporary custodian of land. Mine rehabilitation is highly regulated, better implemented and more accountable than ever before. The industry’s approach to land rehabilitation has improved significantly over past decades.
