instExtThe Mining Institute, a registered charity, is situated in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne and is housed in Neville Hall, a Grade II* listed building.

As we move into the twenty-first century The Mining Institute continues to serve the important educational function for which it was established over 150 years ago.

The Institute plays a pivotal role in the dissemination of the information relative to problems concerning geotechnical and extractive industries; upholding its international reputation and status as the world centre of mining - long after coals have been carried from Newcastle.
