[the classic - never imitated, never bettered!]

[With the exception of various documents produced by the International Council for Metals and the Environment - not featured in this list - this book is so far the only serious attempt by the industry to address its endemic global "problems".]

Billiton and Non-Ferrous Metals/Billiton Handbook [Respectively very simple and concise, and lengthier, introductions to mining, metals and the industry, by one of the world's biggest mining companies.]

The most up to date and probably the best publication yet on mercenaries and mining, among other things.]
