The mining and extraction of natural resources has played an important role throughout the history of mankind.

Mineral deposits exist worldwide. Some regions possess exceptional types or exceptionally large quantities, other regions possess very little. Economics determine whether a mineral ore deposit is valuable enough for excavation. The components needed for processing are then extracted from the mineral aggregates that have been mined.

Various steps are necessary – mixing, grinding, etc. – for the processing of natural materials.
