GATE previous year question papers for Mining Engineering
GATE 2017 committee is going to be released the notification for examination of GATE 2017 at the official web portal of GATE 2017. Candidates who are interested to build carrier in the mining engineering then it is the good opportunities for those candidates . We are expected that notification for application form for GATE 2017 will be released in August, 2016. So you have to visit at the official websites of GATE 2017 for updates for application form.
We are well known interested candidates definitely fill up the application form but the preparation , books related tot the GATE preparation are must but previous year question papers play the most important role on preparation .

There are available 65 questions of 100 marks in which there is a pattern for marks which are distributed in a fix procedure, so you have a look at the below table
Paper Sections Marks Distribution
Subject Questions 70% of the total marks.
Engineering Mathematics 15% of the total marks.
General Aptitude 15% of the total marks.
In the previous year question papers there is also negative marking which is following by
- For 1 mark questions there is 1/3rd negative marking
- For 2 mark question there is 2/3rd negative marking
- But for numerical questions there is no negative marking.
About Mining Engineering
Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that applies science and technology to the extraction of minerals from the earth. Mining engineering is associated with many other disciplines, such as geology, mineral processing and metallurgy, geotechnical engineering and surveying. With the process of Mineral extraction, some amount of waste and uneconomic material are generated which are the primary source of pollution in the vicinity of mines. Mining engineers must therefore be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with the mitigation of damage to the environment both during and after mining as a result of the change in the mining area.
