Electricity performs an endless variety of tasks in our mining industry. It powers almost all of equipment that we encounter in a mine site. It powers mine winding machines, for carrying men and material from underground to surface, mine fans that takes away foul and explosive gases, from inside mines and keeps the mine atmosphere clean to workmen. The use of electrical power to the mining industry in phenomenal and the progress towards full electrification on mining activities cannot be over emphasized. Most of the site engineers associated with mining activities feel the need to know more about the application of electrical power at mines. The aim here is to deal with electricity exclusively form mining point of view and the treatment is necessarily brief. Materials are collected and collated from good many industrial sources, literatures and industrial research works which, the authors feel, will help mine engineers at site besides teaching staffs and research scholars of Institutions.
