[GIFS] The 5 Stages of the Mining Life Cycle Operations
Mining operations are complex. They aren't your runofthemill type projects. These billion dollar complexes consist of various interconnected projects, operating simultaneously to deliver refined commodities like gold, silver, coal and iron ore. Its a five stage process and weve broken it down using GIFs. Exploration
