Find Articles- search for articles online and in print. Recommends resources for finding mining engineering articles.
The EMI Rock Mechanics database plot tool was designed to facilitate the
retrieval, analysis, and inference of specific rock mechanics data. This tool is designed to allow the user to plot two of these test results against each other for a given rock characteristic, and from there build a statistical model describing the relationship.
Engineering Village is the information discovery platform to search across both Compendex and INSPEC databases. The thesauri on Engineering Village comprise the controlled vocabulary used to index articles in the Compendex, Inspec, GeoRef, GEOBASE and EnCompass databases.
OneMine includes a broad selection of the full-texts of articles and peer-reviewed journals to support undergraduate or advanced studies in mining and minerals, and for organizations engaged in research and development.
Coal, oil, and natural gas power the vast majority of electrical generating plants in use today. Learn how fossil fuels are extracted from the earth and how new technologies such as longwall mining and fracking have revolutionized the industry.
The history of Butte Montana is forged in the not so environmentally friendly practices of the Copper Kings of the early 20th Century. Now the city leaders and residents are pushing to clean up the sins of the past and also educate those who wish to get into the field of Mine Reclamation at Montana Technical Institute.
It's the world's largest producer of silver with modern companies ruling the trade but Mexico's silver mining tradition dates back hundreds of years and helped shape the country we know today - a country alive with history and culture.
