Kesler October Mineral resources are important material resources for the development of national economy, but the long-term linear and extensive mining mode leads to low exploitation and utilization of resources and serious waste of resources on the one hand; on the other hand, the environment of mining areas is deteriorating, and safety problems are prominent.

We will continue to set our strategic environmental priorities which will further guide and target our approach to environmental management. We will also continue to improve our environmental performance through positive stakeholder engagement, a focus on greater operational transparency, enhanced environmental awareness through extensive research programmes and benchmarking.

Mineral resources were developed worldwide for many centuries with little environmental control. This is largely because environmental impact was not understood or appreciated as it is nowadays and the technology available at that time was not always able to prevent or control environmental damage.

Although other minerals, such as pyrite (fool's gold), might be confused for gold, it is rare to confuse gold for another : Stephen E. Kesler, Adam C. Simon. Exploitation of mineral resources at a mindless speed to meet the growing needs of modern civilization has resulted in many environmental problems.

Although, the exploitation of minerals began at a slow pace during the industrial revolution in Western countries, during the 20 th century, the exploitation of some minerals, especially the fossil.
