MNG 410 Underground Mining (3)
The purpose of this course is to describe the logic and discuss the steps taken in the planning and design of an underground mine. Since every underground mine incorporates a unique combination of technological, economic, legal, social, and environmental factors, the course will stress the auxiliary operations (ventilation, ground control, etc.) which must be accommodated, as well as the unit operations and equipment dealing with resource extraction.
