Advances in Comminution
Edited by S. Komar Kawatra
 Advances in Comminution 
 focuses on the dilemma of needing
to grind materials to finer sizes while maintaining reasonable
energy costs. Because the selection and sizing of stirred mills
for regrinding and ultrafine-grinding applications do not lend
themselves to conventional methodologies, new approaches are being developed.
 Activity has been directed toward improving ore characterization to predict AG/SAG
mill energy requirements, as well as developing improved models and instrumentation
for the optimization and control of comminution circuits. Instrumentation, modeling,
and control functions in particular have benefited from rapidly advancing computer
technology. These advances will minimize energy waste and provide the increased
energy efficiency needed to maintain ongoing success.

Beneficiation of Phosphate Ore
By S. Komar Kawatra and J.T. Carlson
Phosphate rock is an important mineral commodity used in the
production of phosphoric acid. The majority of phosphoric acid
is produced by the wet process in which phosphate rock is
reacted with sulfuric acid to produce phosphoric acid and
gypsum (calcium sulfate dihydrate). The wet process demands a phosphate rock
feed that meets certain specifications to produce phosphoric acid efficiently and
economically.
Beneficiation of Phosphate Ore 
 thoroughly explains the methods used in beneficiation
of different types of phosphate ores for use in the wet process. The mineralogical
properties of the two major types of phosphate deposits, sedimentary and igneous,
are described along with the processing methods. The benefits and disadvantages of
each process are also discussed.

Challenges in Fine Coal Processing,
Dewatering, and Disposal
Edited by Mark S. Klima, Barbara J. Arnold, and Peter J. Bethell
New sources of energy, increased environmental awareness, and
more stringent regulations are changing the way coal is found,
extracted, and used. As a result, fine coal cleaning, dewatering,
and refuse disposal are now at a major crossroads. The increased level of fines
and near-density material in the inferior seams being mined today necessitate the
development of more efficient fine coal cleaning devices. This, in turn, requires
improvements in traditional dewatering techniques to address the need for acceptable
moisture levels in plant products. Moreover, the larger volume of fine refuse being
generated, coupled with harsher disposal regulations, require upgraded treatment options.
This book includes general knowledge and in-depth discussions on the current
challenges facing the industry, techniques for designing more efficient plants, and new
cleaning and dewatering technologies. The book is a practical, yet cutting-edge
resource for plant designers, engineers, and other practitioners, and for university
students and faculty.

De Re Metallica
By Georgius Agricola
Originally published in 1556, Agricola’s groundbreaking
De Re Metallica 
 was the first mining book based on field
research and observation. For almost 200 years, it remained
the only authoritative work in this area, and by modern times it
had become one of the most highly respected scientific classics on the subject.
The oft-referenced book’s original Latin text prevented its wider use until 1912,
when future president Herbert Clark Hoover and his wife translated
De Re Metallica 
.
Printed in a limited edition, the work was quickly acquired by book collectors,
historians, and medievalists who found much to be learned from its pages. The
book contains an unprecedented wealth of material on alluvial mining, alchemy,
silver refining, smelting, surveying, timbering, nitric acid making, and hundreds
of other phases in the medieval art of metallurgy.

Geotechnical Design for
Sublevel Open Stoping
Edited by Ernesto Villaescusd
Geotechnical Design for Sublevel Open Stoping
details the design
and operation of sublevel open stoping, including variants such
as bench stoping. The book discusses increases in sublevel spacing due to advances
in the drilling of longer and more accurate production holes as well as advances in
explosive types, charges, and initiation systems. Improvement in slot rising through
vertical crate retreat, inverse drop rise, and raise boring are considered. Rock mass
characterization is covered in detail because increases in sublevel spacing have
preordained that larger, unsupported stope walls must stand without collapsing.
Methodologies to design optimum open spans and pillars are described as are rock
reinforcement of development access and stop walls, and fill masses to support
the resulting stope voids. The text also reviews the sequencing of stoping blocks
to minimize in situ stress concentrations and examines dilution control action plans
and techniques to back-analyze and optimize stope wall performance.It features
numerous case studies from the world-renowned Mount Isa Mines and examples from
underground mines in Western Australia.

How Mining Works
By W. Scott Dunbar
How Mining Works 
 explains complex mining concepts in a way
simple enough for those who are not familiar with the industry,
yet thorough enough to be useful to long-time professionals.
This colorful book presents a logical and sensible sequence for acqu
iring a strong
working knowledge of the world of mining. Chapter 1 provides a quick geology
review, explaining how the earth is structured: how, why, and where mineral ores
are created; and how technological advances help us make educated guesses about
where to locate new mines.
The next three chapters present mining and refining operations. Chapter 2 offers
in-depth explanations about the different types of mining, the equipment and proce-
dures needed for both surface and deep mining. Chapter 3 follows with six methods
for processing the ore into usable refined metal. And, since not all mines produce
metals, Chapter 4 covers nonmetallic operations that produce coal, diamonds, and
aggregates.
The second half of the book puts mining in the context of the wider world. Chapter 5
examines four types of mining waste and how to deal with each. Chapter 6 looks at
labor practices, environmental sustainability, and worker and community health and
safety–all critical in today’s highly regulated environment.
Chapter 7 highlights mining economics, with detailed information on how mine
products are priced, monetary arrangements between mines and smelters, and
even the impact of reserves on mining’s future.
Chapter 8 takes a visionary yet practical look at the future of mining, covering not
only advances in expected areas (like robotics) but also in biotechnology, with a
fascinating look at how plants, insects, and various microbes could be used to detect
the presence of minerals and extract metals. Appendix A provides a crash course in the
chemistry sometimes needed to understand why rock goes in and metal comes out.

Investing in Resources: How to Profit from
the Outsized Potential and Avoid the Risks
By Adrian Day
Where should investors put their money? Stocks are projected
to be sluggish for a decade. And thanks to low interest rates
and the likelihood of a long cycle of rate increases, bonds are hardly an attractive
option. For the astute investor with a long-term view, the answer is commodities.
In fact, there has never been a better time to invest in the resources market. And
there has never been a better book than
Investing in Resources: How to Profit from
the Outsized Potential and Avoid the Risks 
 to help you grasp the risk and reap the
benefits of this incredible investment opportunity.
 As the world’s population continues to increase, the resources required to supply
the ever-increasing demand for products are rapidly shrinking. There are simply not
enough readily exploitable natural resources to meet the world’s growing demand
without staggering price increases. Investors can profit greatly from this situation.

Management of Mineral Resources:
Creating Value in the Mining Business
By Juan P. Camus
The mining industry’s strategy for coping with low profitability
has primarily focused on controlling production costs. Despite
mechanization, automation, and other technical improvements, mining’s aggre-
gate profitability still falls far short of that realized by most industries. Author Juan
Camus contends that additional technical knowledge is not required, but rather, the
implementation of sound management practices that utilize the existing knowledge
base more productively.
Management of Mineral Resources 
 explores mining management—the process
of generating plans and supervising their implementation. This book is concerned
with the analysis of some of the internal, controllable factors that influence mining
production effectiveness. It combines the best thinking in mining and management,
allowing practitioners to devise concrete strategies for generating maximum share-
holder value.

Modeling and Simulation of Mineral Processing
Systems, 2nd edition
By R.P. King, Edited by C.L. Schneider and E.A. King
Quantitative modeling techniques and methods are central to the
study and development of process engineering, including mineral
processing. Models in mineral processing have been difficult to develop because of the
complexity of the unit operations that are used in virtually all mineral recovery systems.
The author covers the field of quantitative modeling of mineral processing equipment
and uses models to simulate the actual behavior of ore-dressing and coal-washing
equipment in industrial practice. Many examples are included to explain the application
of some of the commonly used models, most of which described in the book are included
in the ModSim software, the plant-wide simulator that is included on the companion CD.
The simulator is an important part of the book. Almost all of the models described
are not amenable to normal mathematical solutions or easy computation using
calculators or spreadsheets. The simulation techniques done with ModSim allow
complex problems to be tackled with minimal time and expense.

Recommended Contract Practices
for Underground Construction
Edited by William W. Edgerton
This book addresses one of the most challenging and frustrating
characteristics of underground construction: contract language
that fails to account for the unique nature of building underground.
Recommended Contract Practices for Underground Construction 
 represents the first
industry-wide effort to improve contract procedures in more than 30 years. This
manual is an indispensable resource for contractors, consultants, suppliers, and
owners anticipating underground projects. The authors suggest better practices
for all project stages that will improve decision making and positively affect con-
tracts. Part 1 focuses on the practices and disciplines that build the foundation for
effective contracts during the early project phases. Part 2 discusses best practices
for contract provisions, payment mechanisms, and dispute resolution.

Regulatory Governance & Risk Management:
Occupational Health and Safety in the
Coal Mining Industry
By Binglin Yang
Regulatory Governance & Risk Management 
 is the first book that a
ddresses the diffu-
sion of risk-based governance in the coal mining industry from a health and safety
standpoint. Using a diffusion approach and comparisons between Australia and the
United States, this book examines mechanisms that both drive and prevent the diffu-
sion of risk-based governance in the coal mining industry.
This is a timely work given the Upper Big Branch coal mine explosion of April 2010.
 After this disaster, many asked why an enhanced level of enforcement has not
prevented catastrophic accidents from occurring and why risk-based governance,
which helps other countries achieve better safety performance, has not been
practiced in the United States. This book answers these questions and makes
recommendations on how to remove barriers in moving toward risk-based governance.
