The book titled "Dimensional Stone Technology" is the most complete and upto date covering all aspects of dimensional stone mining and its processing. It is very useful for students, researchers, people working with the dimensional of stone related machinery. The various types of marbles, granite, flaggy limestone, sandstone, slate stone etc. are covered in details of their geology, geographical distribution, exploration strategies, grant in procedure of leases and explosive licences and characterisation. The mining covering the opencast as well as underground technology with their feasibility gave been incorporated. Underground extraction techniques for marble deposit using diamond wiresaw and chainsaw has been describe in detailed, Various machinery used at mines and processing units with their application in different types of dimensional stone are included.With the induction of latest machinery at mines, recovery of saleable products has been increased, therefore, stress has been given for deployment of latest machinery conservation and ecofriendly mining. Some aspects of Italin marble extraction technology has also been incorporated which is likely to be come in practice in near future in India for deeper deposit.
