HASH(0xa9076c00) out of 5 stars highly recommended Feb. 21 2014
By Carl Kirstein - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
These two volumes puts the entire mining engineering discipline together in a comprehensive manner. Numerous mine managers and mining engineers have said that this is the best literature on mining engineering they have encountered. And it seems to be globally acknowledged as THE seminal source on a mining engineering overview.

But be warned: it is not light reading for just anyone, the technical details get quickly too much for anyone not intimately involved in the mining environment.

It gives comprehensive information about the business of mining, and even about the operations of mining, but perhaps not enough (to my liking) about the technology of mining. That being said, the work is a mighty one. The contributing authors and reviewers are exhaustive; the pages smack of expertise in the subjects; and the consistency of the writing style is remarkable (a feather in the cap for Darling).

These two volumes are certainly worth their price for anyone in the mining environment. I find myself opening them regularly to check or benchmark what we are busy with... if I can pry it away from my mining engineer colleagues. Highly recommended.

Both volumes arrived damaged. Packaging was highly inadequate. Very disappointed in the books' condition considering the price paid. I would expect packaging able to resist the conditions of shipping.

SME Mining Engineering Handbook is THE reference for mining engineers. At home in any offices dealing eith the mining industry.
