Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topic is a continuation of the previous successful Topic, “Green Mining”. Mining is the fundamental industry for social development and national economic construction. Throughout the entire process of exploring and developing mineral resources, scientific and orderly mining practices are implemented. Disturbance to the ecological environment in the mining area is kept under control within a manageable range. It is of great significance to recognize environmental ecology, employ scientific mining methods, efficiently utilize resources, digitize management information, and promote harmony within mining communities. This research topic aims to provide a platform for new research and recent advances in green mine technology. To promote the development of green mine construction, we encourage the submission of high-quality original research papers, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Safety and sustainable mining;
  • Mineral resource management;
  • Intelligent mining technology;
  • Mining equipment;
  • Geomechanics and geophysics;
  • Rehabilitation of mine sites;
  • Human–machine–environment system;
  • Green exploration in mines;
  • Mine safety and personnel health;
  • Harmless treatment of solid waste in mines.
