Reclamation, Treatment and Utilization of Coal Mining Wastes book cover

Reclamation, Treatment and Utilization of Coal Mining Wastes

Destined to become a major reference work, this book presents a wide range of specialist papers on the exploitation of coal mining wastes (minestone). Up-to-date developments and research results are reported from all over the world, providing a wealth of information for civil and mining engineers, environmentalists, and land reclamation specialists.
