03/25/2005: "Mining 101"
Turns out Spring cleaning is useful afterall. I found this article about nickel mining that I've been meaning to show people. Its from the September/October 2004 issue of Inco Exchange, a publication of Inco public affairs in Toronto.
Anyway, in that issue there was a two page spread explaining the basics of nickel mining, and some of the lingo. Clicky below to bigify.
