This 2-volume SME mainstay is a compilation of the operations that convert ores and mineral concentrates into useful products. It is intended primarily for engineers who want ready-to-use references and data to help solve both immediate and foreseeable problems. Technicians and plant operators will also benefit from this book since it explains the principles and plants behind this complex industry.
The hardbound book starts with a brief history of the industry and a section on the minerals commonly encountered. The body of the book consists of three parts: Unit Operations and Processes; Process Plants (metals and nonmetallics); and General Principles (accounting, design, sampling and testing, tailing disposal, organization and safety, research and development, and conversion tables).
It ends with a complete index.
