Item description for Sustainable Mining Practices: A Global Perspective by Vasudevan Rajaram, Ph.D., Sugijoy Dutta & Krishna Parameswaran, Ph.D....
Describing the current status of mining practice in the Americas, Asia and Europe, Sustainable Mining Practices: A Global Perpective provides a definition of sustainable mining, and generally describes the international sustainable mining practices since 1992. It focuses on such issues as the large volume of waste generated during mining, mine closure planning, managing the environmental impacts of mining, land use planning, and energy use management. The exclusive specialty of this book is the detailed coverage of the sustainable mining systems and technologies that are currently used in developed countries. The book devotes special attention to mineland reclamation, with several examples of successful mineland reclamation and abandoned mineland reclamation in the US. It also addresses waste management issues, including tailings management, risk evaluation of facilities, waste rock disposal, acid mine drainage control, and hazardous waste management, with emphasis on maintenance wastes. The authors devote a chapter to Best Mining Practices for Sustainable Mining, with subchapters on small-scale mining, tailings pond management, and hazardous waste management. This chapter highlights practices that have been successful in the US, and practices that are being developed in India for controlling small-scale mining. The book concludes with a chapter presenting several case histories of sustainable mining practices in Asia, Africa, and the Americas-including sustainable exploration practices.

Sustainable Mining - An Engineer's Perspective Sep 24, 2005
This book is surely a Global prescription for sustainability in mining practices. Practices and innovations from the coal hearts of Oklahoma (emerging mining technologies - hydroevacuation mining technique) to the family-owned operations of small mines in India have been meticulously captured by the authors. The authors, Rajaram, Dutta and Parameswaran, have also provided some insight into the ongoing innovations of the US mining companies and use of new concepts, such as environmental indicators in mining operations. Acknowledgement to the famous Oklahoma Geologist, Bryan Watts (1950-2004) and the active effort by Watts in providing valuable information through the Blasting Chapter of his associate, Paul Worsey adds to the practicality of the book as a valuable reference and field guide on overburden removal by blasting.
The numerous case histories from all over the globe provide great examples to follow.
