Environmental Considerations Related to Mining of Non-Fuel Minerals

COURSE NO: P01-002
Environmental Considerations Related to Mining of Non-Fuel Minerals
Course Highlights

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.
