Environmental Considerations Related to Mining of Non-Fuel Minerals
This online engineering PDH course will present, using tables and discussions, the potential environmental concerns with the mining of non-fuel minerals in the United States.
In the past several decades many changes have taken place in the resource sector within the United States. These changes have been exacerbated by the increased use of certain elements critical to manufacturing and high technology. The search for and development of critical minerals has the potential to increase mining activity in the United States. As such, environmental concerns have been brought to the forefront.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to industrial, mining, chemical, and geological engineers as well as others interested in learning more about the mining, processing, and industrial use of critical minerals and their chemical constituents.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the definition of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969
- Understanding the modern regulatory framework of mining un the United States
- Familiarizing with the environmental effects of historical mines
- Learning about the potential environmental impact of mining operations
- Exploring the impact of mine waste on the environment
- Familiarizing with mine permitting and planning process
- Understanding the impact of future trends in mining
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, " Environmental Considerations Related to Mining of Non-Fuel Minerals”, which is based on Chapter B of “Critical Mineral Resources of the United States – Economic and Environmental Geology and Prospects for Future Supply”, dated 2017.
