The book tells the miner how to protect the environment while exploiting country’s nonrenewable natural resources like the minerals for the overall economic development of the country. It gives a vivid description of the most critical seven components of the environment, air environment, noise environment, water environment, land environment, biological environment, socioeconomic environment and health environment, detailing the impact of mining on the environment and effective mitigating measures to counter the adverse impact. The book also highlights the two most critical ills, that is, lack of clear policy prescription and the menace of corruption, advocating the cause of good governance as the panacea for the ills. The book concludes that a clear cut policy prescription, a reasonably corruption free administrative system and a transparent procedure without any discretionary power that ensures speedy disposal of cases relating to various clearances for mining activities, in short, good governance can be an effective instrument in protecting the environment while exploiting the mineral resources of the country. The book also makes a critical and objective analysis of the roles played by various stakeholders with the conclusion that if the country’s government can provide good governance and the miner is imaginative and professional there is no reason why mining can not be environmentfriendly. printed Pages: 384
