Other Novel Mining Methods.
Ch 22 9 in SME Mining Engineering Handbook SME 2:2028-2047
Previous chapters of this section feature new methods that are beginning to play a strong role in mining. Each chapter presents a novel mining method that is moving from development into commercial practice. Other less-developed methods, however, are slowly gaining acceptance in the mining community. Some of these may have an important role in future mining. Others may vanish. With their development still in infancy, it is simply too early to determine their future impact on mining. The purpose of this chapter is to present enough information on these other methods to identify possible applications. Sources of further information are listed at the end of the chapter.
