Surface mining is forms of mining in which the soil and the rock layer the mineral deposit are removed. It is the other way of insubordinate mining, in which the overlying rock is left behind, and the required mineral deposits are separate through shafts or tunnels.
LONGWALL MINING Overview. In the method of secondary extraction known as longwall mining a relatively long mining face (typically in the range 100 to 300m but may be longer) is created by driving a roadway at right angles between two roadways that form the sides of the longwall block, with one rib of this new roadway forming the longwall face.
Bachelor of Science Mining Engineering. Entering freshmen desiring to study Mining Engineering will be admitted to the Freshman Engineering Program. They will, however, be permitted, if they wish, to state a Mining Engineering preference, which will be used as a consideration for available freshman departmental scholarships.
Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit (the overburden) are removed, in contrast to underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral is removed through shafts or tunnels.
Water. Large quantities of water are used in mining operations for cooling machinery, dust suppression, cleaning, fire-fighting and drinking. Water supplies are normally carried in steel pipes from surface to points close to the work places, with flexible hoses used for the final connections.
