Book Description

Topical Issues of Rational Use of Natural Resources contains the contributions presented at International Forum-Contest of Young Researchers 2018 (St. Petersburg Mining University, Russia, 18-20 April 2018). The Forum-Contest is an excellent opportunity for young researchers to present their work to the scientific community involved in the extraction and processing of natural resources.
The topics of the book include:

• Prospecting and exploration of mineral deposits
• Development of solid minerals deposits and safety of mining operations
• Development of oil and gas fields and transportation of crude hydrocarbons
• Modern technologies of construction work applied in the mineral complex
• Metallurgy. Physical and chemical technologies of hydrocarbons treatment
• Equipment, transport service and energy efficiency of mining enterprises
• Economic tools of innovative development
• Environmental protection
• Geo information systems and nanotechnologies

Topical Issues of Rational Use of Natural Resources collects the best reports presented at the Forum-Contest, and will be of interest to academics and professionals involved in the extraction and processing of natural resources.
