Mining Sector and Prospects for Beneficiation

mining should be encouraged, through fiscal in-centives and taxation to progressively move to-wards full-scale beneficiation and value-addition as close to the extraction point as possible. If a mining company chooses to concentrate on its primary and core business of mining and min-imal beneficiation, then it should be encouraged

Mining and Beneficiation Overview. Mining and mineral beneficiation contributes some 6,5% of South Africa's GDP and is the country's single largest private employer (500 000 people), with small-scale mining operations also making a significant contribution to employment creation. Mineral beneficiation has become a major driver in advancing the

Glossary of Mining Terms Coal Education

A. Abutment In coal mining, (1) the weight of the rocks above a narrow roadway is transferred to the solid coal along the sides, which act as abutments of the arch of strata spanning the roadway; and (2) the weight of the rocks over a longwall face is transferred to the front abutment, that is, the solid coal ahead of the face and the back abutment, that is, the settled packs behind the face.
