Track 3: Geoscience for Society

Geology plays an essential role in many areas of the economy. Economic growth and sustainability, as well as societal well-being, will require reliable supplies of energy and mineral resources, a dependable supply of clean water and the secure and sustainable production of food. All this will be contingent on sustained investment in technology, infrastructure, education and skills development. Geology (sometimes referred to more broadly as Earth science or geoscience) is the study of our planet’s structure, and the processes which have shaped it throughout its long history – and which continue to do so. It underpins the provision of most of the resources on which the UK’s population and industry depend, including energy, minerals, water and food.

Track 5: Mineral Processing

For companies and professionals working in the minerals sector, the term “mineral economics” is the study of determining the optimal engineering process. In other words to optimize geological exploration through advanced technology and furthermore, to reduce the cost of mining, processing and manufacturing through all stages, from mining to manufacturing stages.

  Mineral Process Engineering is concerned with the extraction and purification of valuable commodities from the earth. The raw materials produced by mining are highly impure and must be upgraded before they are of use to society. The refining of mineral commodities involves a broad variety of problems, mostly associated with the production, handling and separation of solid particles. Particle systems are also critical to many of the processes and products of modern industry materials, chemicals and electronics as well as minerals. Mineral processing engineers are at the forefront of the development of the science and technology of particle systems and many of the techniques and procedures used in mineral processing find direct application in other areas.

Track 6: Mine Ventilation

When air flows through the mine environment, its composition changes due to addition of different kinds of impurities along its path. These impurities are Classification of impurities Nontoxic but explosive gases Examples Methane, Acetylene, Hydrogenate. Toxic gases Examples Carbon dioxide, Radon and its daughter products, etc. Acutely poisonous gases Examples Carbon monoxide, Nitrous fumes, Sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, Arsine, Phosphine, etc. Miscellaneous impurities like Vapours of water, Fuels and lubricants, Metals like mercury and lead etc. Solid impurities, like dust, Smoke and organisms. Suspended fine liquid droplets, Such as fog due to condensed water- vapour or Mist of fine oil droplets from drills etc. In mines where cooling plants are used, the mine air also picks up Freon Some amount of water vapour is also present in the form of moisture in mine air. The management of mine ventilation is critical to the maintenance of a comfortable atmosphere for workers working in underground coal mines

Track 8: Thermal Stress

Deep mines and mines sunk in hot countries are hot work sites. Some underground mines in moderate geographic zones are hot because of the unusually high heat flow from the earth. Many mines in the south western United States are located along a high heat zone.

In mining, as in other industries, the exposure of workers to very hot conditions is unhealthy and unproductive. Persons working in hot, humid work sites tend to be inefficient; quite often workers prefer to stay away from work or ignore unsafe working situations. Studies in South African gold mines have shown that high temperatures reduce the work output of miners.

However, over time, the essence of these benchmarks loses meaning when they become ‘tick boxes’ for the industry to show sustainability. This appears to be the case currently. There is a need to take stock of what has been achieved thus far, recognise the changing nature of environmental and social impacts and consider ways of building resilient socio-ecological systems that include mining.

Track 9: Mine Waste & Tailinngs

A feasibility study of a wearable helmet in order to protect mine workers specially of goldmines from carbon monoxide poisoning and cyanidation. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a common problem faced by the workers of coal, gold and many other mines. on the other hand cyanidation problem occurs in gold mines only during ore processing. Current safety systems for mine workers, only monitors environmental concentrations of gas. This is insufficient because toxic exposures effects people at different levels based on their immunity levels. During mining process CO can be emitted which is an odourless gas and lighter than air, it cannot be sensed by workers and effects the haemoglobin range in the body so a CO gas sensor is implemented here in order to detect CO, if the density of CO exceeds inside the mines then the exhaust fan can be switched ON automatically.

Recent research on environmental and social risks and business costs in the extractive industry found that environmental issues were the most common cause of disputes, resulting in lost productivity. International best practices and compliance standards have set the benchmark for mining companies together with national legislation.

Track 10: Optimizing Mine Operations

Mining is an industry in which operational efficiency is key to the feasibility of mine development, particularly with the relatively low ore grades that are being exploited routinely today. From the initial development of the mine, engineers must include quite detailed operational plans in the initial mine design and these must be constantly updated as new information about the ore body and market conditions become available. It is this operational focus that has been behind the successes of operational research in mining.

Overall Mine Market

The Mining division's capital intensity has increased over the past 20 years, a trend that is expected to continue during the next five years. For every dollar absorbed by depreciation, $1.27 is allocated to wage costs. The division's net capital spending is substantial. Capital spending is heavily influenced by mineral prices, and also reflects shifts in focus between investment and production. Typically, periods of strong investment are followed by phases when new operations are bedded down.

The market is dominated by Asia-Pacific which accounted for a share of about 39.8% in 2013. It is estimated to be the fastest growing market at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2014 to 2019.

Latin America is an emerging market, with the demand projected to grow at a rate of 4.9% during the forecast period

The cryogenic equipment market was estimated to be at $14.47 billion in 2014 and is projected to reach $21.09 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2014 to 2019.

Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe dominated the HTI market in 2013 and accounted for nearly 84.8% of the market, by volume and 89.5% market by value. Region-wise, Asia-Pacific is the top consumer of HTI products globally, and is also the largest market by volume for HTI products registering a CAGR higher than the global average till 2019. Europe is the second-largest HTI consumer in the world. However South America is expected to grow fastest in terms of volume and value at a CAGR of 10.9% and 11.2% respectively till 2019.

Scope & Importance

Mining is the process where minerals or other geological materials are extracted from the earth, from an orebody, lode, vein, (coal) seam or reef. This eventually is the platform for a miner/ mining company to gain monetary benefits and commercialize the output of the activity.

Mining operations

Mining operations are differentiated into five major categories based on their resources such Oil and Gas extraction, Coal mining, Metal ore mining, Non-metallic mineral mining and Quarrying, and Support activities for mining.

Minerals recovered

Mining is carried out to discover materials like base metals, precious metals, iron, uranium, coal, diamonds, limestone, oil shale, rock salt and potash, which cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. It also includes extraction of any non-renewable resources (e.g., petroleum, natural gas, or even water)

Countries focusing on Mining

Many countries carry out Mining, but USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Chile have become the leaders in mining, exploration methods and technology across the globe


There are two common excavation types of mining techniques such as Surface Mining and Sub-Surface (underground) Mining. Surface mining is much more common. Targets are divided into two general categories of materials: placer deposits and lode deposits.

Why South Africa

Investing in African Mining is an annual professional conference dedicated to the capitalisation and development of mining interests in Africa.

Societies Associated with Mining & Metallurgy

At Cape Town

South African Archaeological Society

A Cape Archaeological Society was founded in Cape Town in August 1944 by A.J.H. Goodwin (1900-1959; University of Cape Town).

Societies of Mining & Metallurgy in world

Numerous industries worldwide depend on the supply of commodities from underground such as minerals and metals. The dependency of various high-tech-industries on rare earths is a late-breaking issue – coal, on the other hand, is still one of the leading global energy resources. Consequently, the mining sector is pivotal to the world’s economy. The global top 40 companies, which represent a vast majority of the whole industry, reported some 512 billion U.S. dollars of revenue in 2013. The net profit margin of this industry decreased from 25 percent in 2011 to four percent in 2013.

China is the world’s leading country in the mine production of gold. 

Societies at South Africa

It has been supported by over 150 mining & exploration companies, many geological surveys and many professional societies/associations.

Global Mine Production

This statistic shows the total assets of the global mining industry represented by the top fourty mining companies worldwide, from 2002 to 2013. In 2010, the total assets of the mining industry's leading companies came to approximately 943 billion U.S. dollars.

The mining and metals sector has been very vibrant in terms of deals and acquisitions over the last few years. In 2010, a record high of 1,123 deals worldwide was reported, a number which stood at only 392 about ten years earlier. In 2013, some 700 deals worth around 90 billion U.S. dollars were done. In terms of value, the major commodities targeted by these deals were gold, coal, and copper

South Africa Mining Production

Mining production in South Africa increased 2.70 percent in May of 2015 over the same month in the previous year, mainly driven by a 99.6 percent surge in the platinum group metals. Yet, it is the lowest gain in four months. Mining Production in South Africa averaged -0.02 percent from 1981 until 2015, reaching an all time high of 23.72 percent in October of 2013 and a record low of -16.80 percent in March of 2008. Mining Production in South Africa is reported by the Statistics South Africa.
