Abstract

Sustainability issues of particular concern in mining include: inadequate or uncertain base‐line information; distinction between exploration and production; air, water and soil contamination on – and off‐lease; and capabilities, responsibilities and funding for rehabilitation. Many companies have developed relevant technical expertise, but this is not applied uniformly. States that the achievement of industry‐wide change will probably require changes to mining law.
