At first glance, sustainability and mineral resource development appear to be in conflict. Mining depletes finite resources and in a strict sense, therefore, is inherently unsustainable. For instance, there is only a finite amount of copper in the earths crust, and each unit of copper extracted

Mineral resources are becoming increasing difficult to extract on land, and recent research in the deep sea has identified rich ore deposits that may be economically extractable through the development of a deep sea mining industry within the next decade (Fujita, 2001). Deep sea mining (DSM) exploration has already begun. During

Minerals are essential for modern living, and mining is still the primary method of their extraction. To date, it appears that the main constraints to sustainability in the mining sector derive from the ever increasing demand for mined resources, the consumption of resources (mostly energy and water) needed to extract and process metals, and the increasing pollution generated by the extraction
Mineral resources are a vital part of any economy, modern or ancient. Since the birth of civilization, man has used these resources for pigments, metals, glasses, ceramics, cements and much more. The media has recently suggested there is a crisis looming over finding mineral resources, including critical metals.

An annual timber harvest of one million cubic meters, for example, is sustainable as long as the annual rate of forest growth is at least one million cubic
It follows that the industrial countries, which are the major importers of mineral resources and thus are customers of the rest of the world, must have a vested interest in the sustainable development of mineral resources, not only from a global point of view but also in a
Our industry has greater potential than most to help the UK make real progress in maximising the sustainable use of its available resources. The applies as much to beneficial use of what would otherwise be landfilled as waste as it does to creating new opportunities in the natural environment.

We can use mineral resources more sustainably by trying to find substitutes for scarce resources, reducing resource waste, and reusing and recycling nonrenewable minerals Do not waste mineral resources Recycle and reuse 60 80% of mineral resources Include the harmful
Mineral resources have been used for millennia and are a key to societys development. With the growing importance of new technologies and the energy revolution, questions have arisen regarding the future availability of resources of metals and industrial minerals. As discovering large high grade deposits has become increasingly rare, the concept of sustainable development will become

The continuously expanding production of mineral resources in the western China has heavily endangered the ecological environment. We propose strategies to boost the sustainable development of mineral resources, including measures to accelerate economic development and enhance the sustainability of domestic mineral resources.
Advancement in Mineral amp; Metallurgical processing has also played a major role in economic enhancement through value added processing of minerals and waste. Knowledge on accurate evaluation of mineral resources and optimal use of technological advances is the mantra aimed at eco sustainable exploration amp; exploitation of natural resources.
The sustainable development and utilization of mineral resources and reserves is an area of critical importance to society given the fast growth and demand of new emerging economies and environmental and social concerns. Uncertainty, however, impacts sustainable mineral resource development, including the ability of ore bodies to supply raw
