Abstract: The Mineral and Mining industry is a huge energy requiring sector which demands connections to a viable electric power origin and reference. With the upsurge of these mineral requests and decreasing valued grades of ores, energy aspiration is approximated to sky-rocket to 36% by the year 2035. It is even projected to accelerate geometrically from the fact that sophistication and powering of the mine locations speeds up the stability into the necessity of energy applications and its requirements derived from fossil fuels utilized to generate electricity. This paper discusses other fossilized fuel-based materials for generation of electricity.
