SME Mining Reference Handbook. Lowrie, RL, ed., Littleton, CO: Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration, Inc., 2002 Dec; :103-125
Engineers in the mining industry often must solve problems while in the field at prospects, projects, or places far from any personal bookshelf, company office, or public or private library. And it isn't always feasible to bring along the voluminous authoritative books on mining topics so familiar to the profession. This handbook, then, is designed to fill the technical reference gap for the mobile professional who is away from the normal workplace with its comprehensive store of technical information and resources. It is a distillation of key technical information from the mining literature. This chapter focuses on mathematics, statistics, and probability.
