Overall, however, these three countries are making progress in aligning their mining laws and policies to support sustainable development. More progress is needed, and monitoring, inspection and enforcement remain significant challenges. The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program (LPSDP) for the Mining Industry program promotes sustainable mining practices. The program developed a series of handbooks which provide mining managers, communities and regulators with information on leading practice approaches to mining management.   Environmental Impact Assessment of Mining should be used as a reference. Environmental Reviewers including Environmental Conservation Department (ECD) staff, ECD consultants, and members of the Interdepartmental EIA Review Committee should refer to Guide for Review of Mining Environmental Assessment Documentation.

This type of mining is particularly damaging to the environment because strategic minerals are often only available in small concentrations, which increases the amount. of the mining industry. I encourage you to use the Handbook, and use it wisely. RESPONSE. Mining industry response to the book continues to be incredible. Thanks in large part to the efforts by John Chadwick of the Mining Journal, , and many other members of the mining community, the Hard Rock Miner’s.
