Safety, Social & Environmental challenges of Mine ClosureBy Aspect Environmental
Mine closure has become one of the most challenging issues facing mining companies, communities and governments. For mining companies, there may be safety, environmental and social risks, and significant financial provision will be required to manage and address these risks. How well these closures are handled has the potential to influence the community and regulators.
