There are 7 types of mining
Where are you, people who say that mining BTC is a waste of time and resources? Just look here, it may be not only easy to mine BTC but some sites like HashFlare provide cashback and hashflare cashback is up to 6%, I think it proves that they care about their clients and are really ready to reward your efforts.
It is very interesting question
In my opinion
There are four main types of mining, namely underground,
surface, placer and in-situ. A lot of expenses are incurred when the first one takes
place. The fourth method involves a longer process. If you want more details,

I hope for you to find the information you need.
In open cast mining, the minerals that lie on the surface of the earth or very near the surface are scooped and scratched out from the surface. This is done with the help of gargantuan excavators and power shovels, which strip off the mineral bearing rocks. In placer mining or mining in water, those minerals are extracted that lie under water such as manganese. As for underground mining, this mining deals with all those minerals that lie beneath the surface of the ground. This process is sometimes a dangerous one as miners are sometimes trapped deep under the ground.
