Basic data mining methods involve four particular types of tasks: classification, clustering, regression, and association. Classification takes the information present and merges it into defined groupings. Clustering removes the defined groupings and allows the data to classify itself by similar items.What are the different types of mining techniques?
There are four main mining methods: underground, open surface (pit), placer, and in-situ mining. Underground mines are more expensive and are often used to reach deeper deposits.
