  Mining engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mining Engineering is a field that involves many of the other engineering disciplines as applied to extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment.
Modern mining engineers must therefore be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with the mitigation of damage or changes to an environment as a result of that production and processing.
One of the methods of prospecting is to extract drill cores from the area of the potential mine.
