About the book
SUSTAINABLE MINING PRACTICES in eighteen refereed articles discusses energy, economics, efficiency and environment related issues in the mining industry. This book provides the industry professional and research community authoritative reports on developments in the most exciting field of sustainable mining practices today. The book deals with a wide variety of topics, ranging from the environmental issues in mining areas, vegetative and other reclamation strategies and procedures, economics, operational efficiency, placer mining, and policy initiatives. The issues raised in mining and its environmental impacts may lead to future solutions to the economic, technological and environmental problems associated with mining in many aspects and make this book key reading for practitioners and researchers in the field, as well as for environmentalists.
