American Geological Institute, US Bureau of Mines
Am. Geol. Inst./US Bureau of Mines | 1997 | ISBN: 0922152365 | 3660 pages | PDF | 13 Mb
This edition, containing some 28,500 terms, is not meant to be exhaustive in its coverage. It focuses on mining-related terms and excludes such related categories as ceramics, glass, metallurgy, petroleum, and other specialized disciplines.
It is the culmination not only standard mining-related terms but also terms in peripheral areas, such as the environment, marine mining, leaching, pollution, automation, health and safety. Many of these terms now have a legal definition based on law or regulation.
