  • Creating and Protecting Zambia's Wealth: Experience and next steps in environmental mainstreaming

    How much does Zambia benefit from its rich forests, wildlife, soils and water – and what more could it do to ensure the protection and wise use of these ‘environmental assets’? Where environment and poverty problems are becoming increasingly severe, such questions need to be answered urgently. To begin this, the Environmental Council of Zambia and ...

  • Quality Aspects in Spatial Data Mining

    Describes the State-of-the-Art in Spatial Data Mining, Focuses on Data Quality. Substantial progress has been made toward developing effective techniques for spatial information processing in recent years. This science deals with models of reality in a GIS, however, and not with reality itself. Therefore, spatial information processes are often ...

  • Tailings Management Facilities

    Tailings are fine-grained residues from the milling process, emerging as slurries that are deposited in ponds or lagoons, often confined by man-made embankments or dams. These tailings management facilities can present serious threats to the environment and to human life, especially where there is improper design, handling or management. Their ...

  • Sustainable Mining Practices: A Global Perspective

    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 ...

  • Uranium, Mining and Hydrogeology

    Subject of the book is Uranium and its migration in aquatic environments. The following subjects are emphasised: Uranium mining, Phosphate mining, mine closure and remediation, Uranium in groundwater and in bedrock, biogeochemistry of Uranium, environmental behavior, and modeling.

  • Understanding Industrial Transformation

    'A system is just like truth's tail, but the truth is like a lizard. It will leave the tail in your hand and escape; it knows that it will soon grow another one.' [Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818-1883), Letter, Paris, January 3, 1857, to Count Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy. Turgenev: Letters, ed. David]...a scientist can only come to a partial ...

  • Geological Methods in Mineral Exploration and Mining

    This practical step-by-step guide describes the key geological field techniques needed by today's exploration geologists involved in the search for metallic mineral deposits. The techniques described are fundamental to the collection, storage and presentation of geological data and their use to locate ore. This book explains the various tasks ...

  • The Life Cycle of Copper, Its Co-Products and Byproducts

    Copper is one of the three most important metals in the world economy, and the only one of the three that is comparatively scarce in the earth's crust. Known reserves will only last a few decades at projected rates of consumption. While some substitution possibilities exist for some of its applications, copper is uniquely valuable as a conductor ...

  • Water Management at Abandoned Flooded Underground Mines

    Switching off the pumps of a mine is one of the last steps in the lifetime of a surface or underground mine. As the water in the open space raises, the water might become contaminated with different pollutants and eventually starts to flow in the open voids. This book addresses the processes related to mine abandonment from a hydrogeological ...

  • Remediation of Abandoned Surface Coal Mining Sites

    The book describes the current state of former opencast mines in six countries. The remediation and reclamation of abandoned opencast mines are considered as a chance for new sustainable ecological, sociological and cultural developments in the regions concerned. The examples quoted from different countries allow the results of different ...

  • Mine Safety

    The high number of fatal accidents in the mining industry makes mine safety an important issue throughout the world. The risks to life are widespread, ranging from dust explosions and the collapse of mine stopes to flooding and general mechanical errors. Mine Safety combines detailed information on safety in mining with methods and mathematics ...

  • Mine Wastes

    This book provides a thorough, up-to-date overview of wastes accumulating at mine sites. It deals comprehensively with sulfidic mine wastes, mine water, tailings, cyanidation wastes of gold-silver ores, radioactive wastes of uranium ores, and wastes of phosphate and potash ores. The book emphasizes the characterization, prediction, monitoring, ...

  • Mine Water

    Nowhere is the conflict between economic progress and environmental quality more apparent than in the mineral extraction industries. The latter half of the 20th century saw major advances in the reclamation technologies. However, mine water pollution problems have not been addressed. In many cases, polluted mine water long outlives the life of the ...

  • The Guenons: Diversity and Adaptation in African Monkeys

    It has been twelve years since a work relating to the long-tailed African monkeys known as the guenons has been published and fifteen years have passed since the last major scientific symposium was held that was solely dedicated to current research on members of this monkey group living in the wild. Since that time, new guenon species and ...

  • Uranium in the Environment

    This book presents the results from the Uranium Mining and Hydrogeology Congress held in September 2005, in Freiberg, Germany. It addresses scientists and engineers involved in the areas of uranium mining and milling sites, clean-up measures, emissions of nuclear power plants and radioactive waste disposal, as well as political decision-makers.The ...
