Environmental Impact Assessment Guidelines for the Mining

These Guidelines cover screening and categorization, scoping, and conduct on environmental impact assessment for new and existing mines. The Guidelines draw on the overall approach provided in the draft General Technical Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment (2017). However, the guidance is specific to the mining sector.

Mining Environmental Impact Assessment

Mining operations can have a significant impact on the environment. Therefore, in most countries they are subject to the requirements of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). For mining projects in the UK this is fairly straightforward, following a similar assessment process to that of large industrial, engineering and development schemes.
