We use the general term mining to describe the activity ofrecovering materials from the earth. It is from these raw materialswe take minerals we need or the raw material from which we winmetal. Mining is a broad term, and there is more to it than mightmeet the eye. In mining, we might extract the o…re of a metal. After processing,we'd win the metal, be it iron, copper, aluminum, or any othermetal we use (and we use most of them!). In the case of stone foruse as a building material, we mine the marble, granite, limestone,slate or any other rock we can utilize. Sand, pieces of rock andother aggregate products are also mined, and they are vital tobuilding and construction. Even if you call the activity quarrying,you are describing a mining operation. The earthen materialsnecessary to make Portland cement are mined. Imagine a worldwithout cement, if you can. There is so much more. Clay and other earthen materials are used in the ceramics industry.Glass manufacture would be impossible without mining. And let's notforget that we also mine "rocks" like diamond, ruby, emerald andthe like. Borax, mica and other minerals are extracted from theearth to be used in thousands of applications. Scouring powder hasminerals in it, and they were mined. So were the minerals used tomake the sheet rock (wallboard) in a home or other structure. Let'skeep going. Moreover, Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot begrown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in alaboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extractionof any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, oreven water. Coal is burned in massive quantities to generate electricity. Ithas to be mined. So does the uranium ore we use to produce theuranium we find in nuclear fuels. Mining is a broad topic, andspecifics are easy to list because we utilize so many products ofmining in our daily lives.

The devil's miner, 2005.. Two brothers, 14-year-old Basilio and 12-year-old Bernardino, work deep inside the silver mines of Cerro Rico, Bolivia. In the mines, which date back to the 16th century, it is said the devil determines the fate of those who enter. Raised without a father and living in pov…erty with their family on the slopes of the mine, Basilio and his brother must work to help support their family and afford supplies vital to their education. As we come to know them, we see their fears and hopes for their future, and glimpse childlike souls peeking through their stoic faces. Trusting in an ancient belief that the devil determines the fate of all those who work in the mines, Basilio believes only the mountain devil's generosity will allow them to earn enough money to continue the new school year - their only chance of escaping their destiny in the silver mines.

The basic princible of mining is to go to where the deposit of the wanted material is found, dig the material from the deposit with suitable tools and then refine the raw mineral to pure ingots. So the basics is simple. It becomes complicated when you add the reality to mining: Before you c…an dig on a site, you need to acquire permission to mine the site. Before getting permission, assessing of environmental and safety hazards have to be made. Many times you have to also pay to the owner of the land. The tools also may require permissions to use, a basic pickax can be used freely, but if you need power tools or big machines, you need permissions (and education to use them). Using explosives need many different permits. Safety also has to be taken cared of all times. The deeper you go underground, the more dangerous it becomes. Keeping up with safety is expensive. Refining the raw material means separating the metal from the rock. It depends on the metal we are mining which method to use, but in many cases the refining requires hazardous chemicals. (MORE)

Many people think Bolivians are descendants of the Inca. The Inca, from furthe…r North than the territory now occupied by Bolivia, moved down into the area and defeated the Aymara, assimilating and mixing with them, which is why the Aymara often describe themselves as descendants of the Inca.
