03.06 Cookie Mining Lab Ciara Goins May 4, 2019 Lydia Goodrum Objective(s): To understand the difficulty of mining and reclamation, evaluate the financial process of mining, and to understand the effectiveness of reclamation. Procedure: 1.In this simulation, you will "purchase" a mine, "rent" your mining equipment, and be supervised by an "official." You will keep track of your expenses and your income to calculate your profit (or loss) at the end of the activity. Take a moment and predict your performance. Do you think you will make a profit? Why? 2. First, you (the miner) must next decide which area you are going to mine. This area is also purchased on credit. The available areas and cost are listed below: Chips Ahoy™: $5.00 Store Brand: $4.00 Keebler Chips Deluxe™: $6.00 Other brand: please check with your teacher for cost 3. After purchasing your land (cookie), the miner (that's you) must rent her or his mining equipment. The mining must be conducted with mining tools. NO HANDS MAY BE USED!!!! The mining equipment costs are Flat Toothpick $2.00 Round Toothpick $5.00 Paperclip $7.00 Please note : the replacement cost for broken tools is double the rental price. 4. After purchasing your land (cookie) and equipment, the miner (you) places the cookie on the graph paper and traces the outline of the cookie. Then, you determine and record the initial topography of the region (Turn the cookie on its side and draw the side-view). 5. The cost of mining and reclaiming your land (labor, etc.) is $2.00/minute. Both mining and reclamation must be timed! 6. Begin mining your cookie. You may not use your hands or fingers. Work on the graph paper. Only mining tools may be used. You decide when to stop the mining process. Your goal is to remove the chocolate chips (the ore) from the cookie (the mine). Do not dispose of the excess cookie material (keep everything on the graph paper). A parent or guardian should act as an "official" and randomly check to make sure that you are not using your hands or fingers in the mining process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
