They are however not fuel or metal sources. On top that after their beneficial they can be used as raw materials or additives in a huge range of applications. Some examples of their application are in construction, paints, ceramics, electronics, filtration, plastics, glass and detergents. Also some metallic compounds may be included in this category but possibly utilized under a non -metallic form. The purpose of this evaluations is to determine the suitability of for use of the industrial minerals. According to the various types of mineral each is evaluated on its known to give significant results. Due to the nature and type of mineral the evaluation procedures vary. Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth’s surface.
Thus deposits are from various parts of the earth surface like the lode, vein, reef and others that form to be a mineral package which is of economic value. Thus it safe to state that minerals naturally occur on the earth’s surface and need to be tapped as they offer a wide range of economic benefits. An ore-body may contain metals, oil shale, gemstone, limestone, coal, chalk, salt and gravel among others. The non- renewable resources include water, natural gas and petroleum. Mining has been long before much attention was paid to it like in recent times. Techniques used in mining are divided into two classes of excavation types. While underground mining the overlying rock is left in place and the mineral is obtained or removed through tunnels.
Erosion is the action of surface processes that removes rock, soil or dissolved material from one location on the earth’s crust and transports it to another location. Water is a natural resource that has many uses from human to industrial and contamination to it is dangerous as it causes a lot of inconveniences. To bear the brunt of heavy health bills due to contamination by chemicals is not pleasant at all. Sink holes are cavities in the ground that are caused by water erosion. A coal fire is the natural burning of an outcrop or underground coal seam. They burn on end unless the fuel source is exhausted permanently . Thus stringent measures need to be undertaken to avoid and evade the impact on human and environmental safety.
Impact assessment, development of management plans, mine closure planning and environmental monitoring are the key steps to follow to ensure a hazard is averted. Lithium a mineral is a compound salt that is used for psychiatric medication. Lithium compounds has several industrial applications. They include astronomically, terrestrial and biologically. With its use and application it has been on a constant rise.
These services are just a few that are provided on the lithium based industry. To be able to read the market and provide adequate consultancy advice in a specific area is all that Benchmark does. The raw materials particularly include lithium, cobalt, graphite and nickel.
