Any activity directed to the extraction of ore and associated rock. Included are open pit work, quarrying, auguring, alluvial dredging, and combined operations, including surface and underground operations.
Activity whose purpose is the extraction, concentration, smelting of economic minerals from a mineral deposit. It includes exploration (in the strict sense), development of mineral deposits, constructing the mine and mining, i.e. extracting and processing the ore or tailings.
The extraction of economically important minerals and ores from the earth.
The process to obtain useful minerals from the underground and surface of earth.

It is the process of extracting minerals or metal ore from a mine or a mineral deposit.
The extraction of diamonds from in-ground deposits, as compared with dredging or other recovery methods.
The excavation and extraction of metals, minerals and oil from the earth. Canada is a leading mineral exporter, and produces zinc, asbestos, silver, and nickel for export, and also mines potash, sulfur, uranium, copper, and iron. Coal, oil, and natural gas are abundant in Alberta and to a lesser extent in Saskatchewan.
The extraction or digging out of minerals from deep under the ground, e.g. coal, iron ore.
The extraction and recovery of valuable minerals.
the removal of minerals (like coal , gold, or silver) from the ground.
The science, technology, and business of mineral discovery, extraction, and marketing.
Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually (but not always) from an ore body, vein, or (coal) seam. Materials recovered by mining include bauxite, coal, copper, gold, silver, diamonds, iron, precious metals, lead, limestone, nickel, phosphate, oil shale, rock salt, tin, uranium, and molybdenum. Any material that cannot be grown from agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory, is usually mined.
