Industrial Minerals, including construction raw materials, provides the bulk of the solid minerals required by most developed countries, both in tonnage and value. In other countries, the discovery and extraction of industrial minerals is an essential stage in economic development. This book contains a comprehensive coverage of the subjects that occupy professional geoscientists working in industrial minerals and the extractive industry. It includes descriptions of the geology of many deposits, country and regional reviews of industrial minerals, mineral economics, case histories of extraction, techniques for exploration and evaluation, examples of quarry and pit design, risk management, minerals planning/permitting and legislation, the environmental impact of mineral extraction, and mine waste and by-product utilization. The book results from a unique international event which combined the 36th North American Forum on the geology of Industrial Minerals with the 11th UK Extractive Industry Geology Conference. Papers by leading experts from industry, consultancies, government bodies and academia, based in Europe, North America and elsewhere are included. The book will appeal to all professional geoscientists involved with industrial minerals and the extractive industry and others, including mining engineers, planners, mineral economists and environmental geoscientists.
