Abstract

"Clay and clay-like minerals are mined in many localities for a large number of uses. Most of these mines are small, seasonal operations. Common practice in these types of pits is to strip and mine clay from shallow overburden depths without the aid of careful prospecting and developing, and with little or no engineering technique. Bentonite deposits which must be continuously mined at tonnages from 5,000 to 7,500 tons per month require that the entire project be carefully planned and engineered so suitable equipment may be obtained and operational cost minimized. This thesis is concerned with the prospecting, developing, and mining of large bentonite deposits according to the best known engineering practice for continuous operation under various climatic conditions"--Introduction, page ii.
