|Resource title||The Environmental Sustainability of Mining in Australia: key mega-trends and looming constraints|
|Author(s)||Gavid M. Mudd|
|Publication/ source||Resources Policy, vol.35 no.2 pp.98-115|
|Date published||June 2010|
|Summary text/ abstract||At 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.|
