Abstract - USGS
Production from underground mines is usually mostly ore so an evaluator can add10% to the amount of ore mined based on equation 4 or 5 to estimate the amount of waste. Most waste production is from drift and raise development. The equations are based on total production from the mine assuming most of the material hauled 90% is ore.
4 Coal Mining and Processing Coal: Research and Development
The cost per ton of mining coal by surface methods is generally lower than that by underground methods. In the United States in addition to a continuous growth in coal production since the 1960s there has been a dramatic shift in production from underground mining to surface mining . In the Powder River Basin PRB where deposits of coal

In the case of alumina the input costs include fuel oil natural gas caustic soda and bauxite. For primary aluminum the inputs are alumina electricity carbon and materials source: Alcoa company data .
Cost of Producing a Barrel of Crude Oil by Country - knoema.com
Slump of oil prices does not slow oil production immediately as it does with investment according to historical evidence. On the contrary it affects future production through decreased investment in exploration and development of new fields. However in the current conditions when oil price hovered above break-even price price at which it becomes worthwhile to extract for several years the

Such loss representing the cost of materials labour and overhead incurred on the wastage should he transferred to Profit and Loss Account Costing Profit and Loss Account where no integral system of accounting is maintained and not added to the cost of production so as to make meaningful comparison of costs of production of different periods. 2.
U.S. Mines Produced an Estimated $82.2 Billion in Minerals
U.S. metal mine production in 2018 was estimated at $25.9 billion which was 4 percent less than 2017. Lower average metal prices and lower production of many metals contributed to the reduction in value for 2018. The principal contributors to the total value of metal mine production in 2018 were gold copper iron ore and zinc.
