Mining Global Market Report


Characteristics
Mining is defined as the act, process, or industry of extracting ores
and other materials from mines. Mining is the only source of metals
and minerals which are required as raw materials across industries
including agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, utilities,
communication, and construction. Sand and gravel, coal and stone
are non-metallic products of the mining industry.
All mining activities can be classified broadly into mine operations
and mining support activities. These activities generally range from
processes which vary from underground or open-pit mining,
dredging, quarrying, well operations or evaporation pans,
beneficiation activities (preparing, crushing, screening, washing
and flotation of the ores) and other preparation work initially
performed at the mine site, or as a part of mining activity.
