"Environmental Policy in Mining: Corporate Strategy and Planning for Closure is a study and comparison - global in scope - of current practices used by mining firms striving for ecological management. An international gathering of authors take an integrated and interdisciplinary approach in addressing, analyzing and working toward solutions regarding the complex challenges posed by managing the environmental impacts of mining and mine closure. The issues addressed range from the ecotoxicological effects of metal residues to the land use effects of mining, and from socioeconomic impacts to environmental regulation."--Jacket.
