Environmental protection planning

Any activity of the mining sector has a direct impact to the environment both natural and human. The obligation of protecting the environment lies to each mining company that exploits the resource. The company should win the bet of limiting the environmental impact of their mining activities from the early stage of exploration, establishment and operation to the final stage of closure of a site.

Decision makers within a company should also examine and follow the requirements of the complex regulatory framework that affects the mining sector. Directives and regulations associated with natural habitats and wild Flora and Fauna, Water, Wastes, Emissions and baseline reports, major-accident hazards, transportation etc. should be taken under careful consideration at the stage of planning.
