MINERAL SANDS - Earth Sci

Mineral sands are mined by surface mining methods including open cut mining, suction dredging and hydraulic mining. The first stage of the mining process is to remove all timber and topsoil from the mine site. The topsoil is stockpiled for later rehabilitation of the site after mining has been completed. 1.
