Underground Mining Methods of Copper

2017-4-17  Underground Mining-Auxiliary to Steam-Shovel Operations. As is generally known the Utah Copper mine is primarily a steam-shovel operation, and it will perhaps surprise many that up to April, 1914, a considerable tonnage of ore was obtained by underground mining methods. During the early years of steam-shovel mining
