Mining Impacts to the Human and Natural Environments
A compilation of resources and issues
First International Conference on Mining Impacts to the Human and Natural Environments (Punta Gorda, March 15, 2008)
Please see this new link for the diversity of mining related issues.
This resource focuses on adverse impacts from mining currently not addressed or evaluated by regulatory agencies and municipalities, as well as alternatives to mining and approaches for improved monitoring and evaluation of existing and proposed mine sites and mine-related impacts. This portal is made possible thanks to the volunteer efforts of scientists, other professionals and citizens.
