Mining

Mining for coal is something that is widely known, but did you know that diamonds, uranium, copper, and other non-renewable natural resources are also mined? There are two types of mining; surface and subsurface. Questions about the methods and types of mining, what ores are mined, and related questions should be asked in this category.

What was the pay scale like for coal miners in 1920 in the UnitedStates? More how they got paid, not exactly what with.
They are mostly found in the western part of the US includingCalifornia, Colorado, Idaho, and a few more.
The three method generally used to extract metals from ores aredependent on their reactivity. The first method is electrolysis,which is used for metals like aluminum and magnesium that have ahigh reactivity. The second is extraction by reaction with eithercarbon or carbon monoxide, which is used for...

There is one in Eastern Falador I think and maybe one Northwest of Falador where the dwarfs are set up. I hadn't played in a while but those are places to look.
Potash, or carbonate of potash, is in fact a mixture of potassium salt with impure form of potassium carbonate (K2CO3). In other words, it is the common term used for the fertilizer forms of the element potassium (K). Potassium occurs abundantly in nature, being the 7th most common element in the...
Money of course, adn control raw minerals.
The melting point is the temperature at the solid and liquid statesof the material are in equilibrium; if the temperature is even veryslightly above the melting point, the material will melt, and ifit's even very slightly below, the material will freeze. Technically the melting point depends on the...
The denudation of the soil cover and subsequent washing down is described as soil erosion. The processes of soil formation and erosion, go on simultaneously and generally there is a balance between the two. Sometimes, this balance is disturbed due to human activities like deforestation, over-grazing...
The answer is: more likely NO . Water jetting has its own limitation which is dictated by the hardness of the ore. In general, this hardness can be as high as (up to) 10MPA of the compressive strength of the material. Sand, sandstone, some shale, claystone, limestone, oxidized metal ores,...

I would if I could get free gold from there, but on the other hand,it would be very noisy.
bauxite is found in jamaica and in cuba in the caribbean region
It depends on which ore. But most tin is extracted from oxide ores like cassiterite. To extract the tin from cassiterite, you just need to raise the temperature to around 1200C and provide a chemically "reducing" (low-or-no-oxygen) environment in the forge/furnace/kiln. This is often done by adding...
its bad because if they take all the coal they could not reproduce it again (nonrenewable resource), it affects water, air and ecology.
They change from processes involved with the rock cycle. See related question on the rock cycle.
Ores contain minerals that are of economic importance. Some ofthese may be considered beautiful and as such their appearance maycontribute to their economic value (for example precious stonese.g. diamonds).
From Susan Ward Aber, in her paper, "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Diamonds": "Diamond may be up to 3 billion years old, which is much older than their surface host rock. Diamond crystallization originates some 200 kilometers, or 320 miles, beneath the surface and the disaggregated...

Caves are usually some form of limestone. The stone is VERY slowly dissolved by water, and the dissolved material leaves with the draining water. Typically this takes millions of years.
The sandstone would have to be melted first by descending into the lower crust at a subduction zone. Once melted it would have to rise through the crust cooling slowly to allow the formation of typical large crystal granite texture and allow steam to outgas from the melt before solidification.

do a Google search for the Mine Act of 1842. Good article that includes the investigations of the panel that recommended the act be passed. Includes a few illustrations of mining.
Assuming you can recover ALL of the gold in the ore- 100 grams of sylvanite would contain 28 grams of gold. 70 divided by 28= 2.5, so 2.5x100= 250 grams of sylvanite.
1867, when it was invented. Miners began using dynamite as soon as it was available.
Ultramafic rocks are made of ferromagnesian minerals.
Potash (potassium carbonate) is both mined and made. Potash (potassium carbonate) and soda (sodium carbonate) have been used from the dawn of history in bleaching textiles, making glass, and, from about A.D. 500, in making soap. Soda was principally obtained by leaching the ashes of sea plants,...
Pyrite is iron sulfide often found metamorphic rock, quartz veins,and sedimentary rock. It can also be found in coal beds and fossilsas well as gold for which it is often mistaken.
With the high unemployment of the depression, many women who were working lost their jobs. Employment schemes were generally aimed at keeping men working, so many women remained unemployed.
depends on which metal, and which ore. Most are crushed- then some are roasted (heated) some are separated by weight, physical characteristics, etc. In some cases, metals are recovered by chemical reaction, using a chemical that dissolves the metal, which removes it from the waste material.
To recover subsurface ores, we use the techniques of underground mining . We sink or extend a shaft to follow the strata that contains the materials we wish to mine and process.
Perhaps the most common iron ore is taconite.
Both of them utilize expectation-maximization strategy to converge to a minimum error condition. While K-Medoids require the cluster centters to be centroids, in k-Means the centers could be anywhere in the sample space. k-Medoids is more robust to outliners than k-Means therefore results in more...
No ore contains steel. However, IRON ore, such as taconite, produces iron. When alloyed with other metals and carbon, it becomes steel.
The mining cradle, also known as a rocker box, was invented byWilliam Tom Jr in 1851. It was used in gold mining operations.
Gold, silver, and copper are mined in Utah and zinc is a by-product, so yes it is mined in Utah.
Far too many to list- your telephone alone contains 34 different minerals obtained by mining. In short, unless someone grew it, then it was dug out of the earth at some point.

Depends on the law of where you are. In most of the US, mining is regulated and licensed by the State Mine authority. However, if a local government raised an objection for cause, that would be considered by the State in determining if a permit should be issued. "We don't want it" is not cause.
After a source of gypsum is found, regular mining equipment will beused to extract it from the ground. As with mining other minerals,mining gypsum can lead to environmental harm.
difference between Data Mining and OLAP
This is a huge question and can not be given a simple answer. Metals are very useful. Ores are naturally occurring rocks that contain metal or metal compounds in sufficient amounts to make it worthwhile extracting them. The method used to extract a given metal from its ore depends upon the...
