Abstract
After a mineral deposit has been discovered, delineated, and evaluated, a mining method must be selected that is physically, economically, and environmentally adaptable to recovering the mineral from the deposit. Factors that affect this selection are listed as are the types of recognized mineral deposits; most surface and underground mining methods are related to these parameters from the rock mechanics design concept.
