Technological developments and environmental laws and regulations that affect mining have proliferated during the past 25 years. Concurrently, the need for a modern mining dictionary has grown--one that incorporates not only standard mining-related terms but also terms in peripheral areas, such as the environment, pollution, automation, health and safety. The new edition of the Dictionary of Mining and Mineral Related Terms is the culmination of a 5-year effort between the U.S. Bureau of Mines and the American Geological Institute (USBM CONTRACT NUMBER J0101017) that will serve the needs of those engaged in minerals-related activities. It is organized to aid the user in appreciating the essential role that minerals and their products play in our quality of life.
