About this book

This book highlights the effects of past mining and provides information on the types of problems in may cause in both urban and rural areas. The book also demonstrates how such problems may be anticipated, investigated, predicted, prevented and controlled. Furthermore, it shows how sites already affected by mining problems and hazards can be remediated and rehabilitated.

Covering subsidence, surface mining, disposal of waste, problems resulting from mine closure and mineral processing, this book is a reference for practising mining and geotechnical engineers, as well as students in this field.
