Resource titleThe Environmental Sustainability of Mining in Australia: key mega-trends and looming constraints
Author(s)Gavid M. Mudd
Publication/ sourceResources Policy, vol.35 no.2 pp.98-115
Date publishedJune 2010
Summary text/ abstractAt first 'sustainable mining' could be perceived as a paradox—minerals are widely held to be finite resources with rising consumption causing pressure on known resources. The true sustainability of mineral resources, however, is a much more complex picture and involves exploration, technology, economics, social and environmental issues, and advancing scientific knowledge—predicting future sustainability is therefore not a simple task. This paper presents the results from a landmark study on historical trends in Australian mining, including ore milled, ore grades, open cut versus underground mining, overburden/waste rock and economic resources.
