Abstract: Mining accidents occur in the process of mining activities from machine operations and process application. Thousands of miners die from mining accidents each year, especially in the process of mining for minerals from rocks whether at the surface or underground. A review of specific cases was considered to buttress the need for complete and adequate safety against accidents. Generally speaking, surface mining is commonly less hazardous compared to underground mining; and large mines are prone to more accidents than smaller mines. This paper discusses accidents in mining operations, its causes, positions and ways to prevent its occurrence.
