Underground mining is the process of extraction of minerals and ores that are buried deep inside the earth’s crust. Major types of underground mining techniques that are used include hard and soft mining. With hard underground mining the process of excavation of hard minerals such as lead, copper, nickel, iron, gold and silver is carried out. However, minerals such as potash, coal, oil shale and other minerals are extracted with the help of soft underground mining techniques. Various types of mining equipment are available in the market based on the type of mineral that needs to be extracted. Equipment used for underground mining include overhead loaders, draglines, shovels, haul trucks, front end loaders, gathering-arm loaders, conveyors, etc.
