JKMRC publishes a unique and widely-lauded series of monographs on mining and mineral processing, designed to help practitioners do a better job in operations, consulting, engineering services and research.  The books combine practical method with scientific rigour by the world-renowned expertise available at the JKMRC, and its peer groups, to deliver effective solutions to problems that professionals are required to solve in the field.  Because of the applied research basis of the expert knowledge captured in the monographs, the books can also be a valuable aid for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Each book is designed as an integrated approach to a particular topic, written by top experts in the field and including many illustrative case studies.  ‘Mineral Comminution Circuits’ is the standard work on the operation and optimisation of comminution and classification circuits, and a guide to process simulation using JKSimMet.  ‘Open Pit Blast Design’ covers the blast design and monitoring methodology developed by JKMRC researchers over many years of applied research in Australia and overseas.  Similarly ‘Block Caving Geomechanics’ makes available the knowledge gained in the first International Block Caving Study, and the latest in the JKMRC series, ‘Guidelines on Caving Methods’, builds on this knowledge based on the succeeding Mass Mining Technology research program.  ‘Metal Balancing and Reconciliation’ provides metallurgists and geologists with the information necessary to practice these essential skills and complements the Draft Code of Practice developed as part of an AMIRA project.  ‘Statistical Methods for Mineral Engineers’ is a comprehensive and practical guide to collecting and analysing data, including plant trials, and ‘Process Mineralogy’ is a wide-ranging treatment of principles, methods and technologies in this vital process discipline.
