The Social Aspects of Mine Closure: A Global Literature Review

Published by: Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining

This paper provides an overview of the publicly available literature on the social aspects of mine

closure. We examine the themes that have been the focus of both industry and research attention.

This then enables a gap analysis and suggestions as to future research priorities.
