SME Mining Engineering Handbook, Third Edition
This SME all-time bestseller 2-volume set is a classic. This comprehensive reference work distills the entire body of knowledge that characterizes mining engineering as a disciplinary field. While it may serve as a textbook for advanced students, its primary function is to provide professional practitioners with an authoritative reference and design source. More than 250 experts contributed to this text, which devotes attention to all branches of mining--metal, coal, and nonmetal--and to all locales of mining--surface, underground, and hybrid.
