Welcome to MineWiki
This Wiki has been developed as a resource for mining engineering students completing their capstone underground mine design project. Articles are mostly written by students, for students, so article content has not been uniformly edited for correctness or style, so caveat emptor.
To find your way around the Wiki, make use of the navigation bar on the left. Also, try the search box. Since this is a work in progress, you should also make use of the references suggested in the Course outline link (also in the navigation bar).
For a list of completed topics, grouped by function within the mine design process, see Completed articles, or use the navigation bar on the left.
