Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or geological materials. Mining is done using two excavation types: Surface mining and sub-surface mining. After excavation, the mineral is processed using techniques like Extractive metallurgy and Mineral processing. There are many environmental issues like erosion, loss of biodiversity and ground water contamination by chemicals from mining processes. Many companies are now enforced to follow good environmental standards.
The Journal of Powder metallurgy & mining provides an open access platform for advance research and development with wide-ranging aspects of metallic compounds, alloys, blends, composites, fabrication, manufacturing processes, metallurgical extraction, mining and industrial applications. Journal of Powder Metallurgy & Mining is an Open Access journal and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of the field and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.
