    Beginning with the Phoenician traders more than 3000 years ago, mining today is an international business. This book has tried to reflect this international character by presenting a snapshot of the world of mining through a series of case studies. The publication is devoted strictly to underground mining and can be used for the training of new mining engineers as well as a reference book for those already in the field. The case studies in this book cover the commodity range from iron ore to diamonds extracted by operations located in all corners of the world. The book consists of 11 sections making up 77 chapters. The sections are entitled as follows: General Mine Design Considerations; Room-and-Pillar Mining of Hard Rock Room-and-Pillar Mining of Soft Rock; Longwall Mining of Hard Rock; Shrinkage Stopping; Sublevel Stoping Cut-and-Fill Mining; Sublevel Caving; Panel Caving; Foundations for Design; and Underground Mining Looks to the Future. Black and white visuals are presented throughout the book and a comprehensive topic index is provided.
