Mining Industry of the Future Mineral Processing Technology Roadmap Introduction Everything in the 21st century begins with mining. Taken from the Future Begins with Mining A Vision of the Mining Industry of the Future, developed by the mining industry in September 1998, these words communicate the critical but often unseen role that mining plays in the economy and the lives of each individual.
Introduction to Mineral Processing 2 1.0 Introduction 1.1 Mineral Processing and Extractive Metallurgy Mineral processing is a major division in the science of Extractive Metallurgy. Extractive metallurgy has been defined as the science and art of extracting metals
Mineral processing, mineral beneficiation, or upgradation involves handling three primary types of ROM material, which have been blasted, fragmented, and brought out from an in situ position. These materials can be used directly or by simple or complex processing and even by applying extractive metallurgy like hydrometallurgical or pyrometallurgical methods.

The focus of the mining industry is shifting towards potential new resources in remote areas as a result of decreasing ore grades. Remote sensing technology is an effective and widely established analytical method for geology and mineral exploration and has proven extremely beneficial by providing access to dangerous or previously inaccessible mineral deposits.
The potential environmental and occupational health impacts of mining and mineral processing are of great concern to land managers, regulators, the mining industry, the media, and the general public. This is the case in historical mining areas, areas of active mining, and areas of proposed future mining.
