Handbook on Mine Fill now available

HandbookOnMineFill_copyThe use of mine fill is almost as old as mining itself. Future land use considerations and evolving community attitudes demand that industry comprehensively explores the use of fill, particularly fill generated from mining waste in a diverse range of underground and surface operations.

This book is a concise summary of the considerable body of mine fill knowledge and experience and provides mining engineers and those responsible for the application of fill with a one stop reference, covering the most significant aspects of fill.
