GEOPHYSICAL TECHNIQUES AND THEIR

Magnetic method has been used in coal exploration. As discussed by (Thomas et al., 2016), rare-metals (RM) have low magnetic response but intrusive host rocks which has high magnetic response make it possible to use magnetic technique for their exploration. Aeromagnetic method has been used in diamond exploration for decades (Frederick, 2002).

2021-5-3  Strip mining is commonly used for mining coal seams and phosphate beds. In hilly terrain the mining of the overburden and the deposit (usually a coal seam) follows the contour around the hill and into the hillside up to the economic limits; hence it is called contour mining. This method is widely used for coal and to remove shale from
