This brief report presents the results of a study on community participation in mine closure planning processes. This research has been conducted under the auspices of the CSRM Social Aspects of Mine Closure Research Consortium.2
The aim of this study is to identify, categorise and describe the ‘mechanics’ of actual community participation in the mine closure planning process across a selection of case examples, including: how these processes are scoped, who is involved, what resources are allocated, timeframes and triggers, and the structures and arrangements that are set in place.
