(During October 9-11, 2017 at Department of Mining Engineering, IIT Kharagpur)
Mining and quarrying are indispensable for the sustaining the developmental pace of the modern society. Everything that we see that is not agro-product like wood, wool, cotton has probably been produced from materials that were excavated / mined out of the ground. Mining supplies all the essential raw materials for the power plants and metallurgical plants in India. Over the last four decades a large number of spoil dumps are generated in mines and mine sites are left as destroyed landscape. Numbers of mines are now at the verge of completing their mining life. Strong environmental legislation these days insist that there is MINIMAL damage to the local habitat and that remediation of the area is carried out to a satisfactory standard after the mining has ceased.
