23 VALUATION OF  Economic benefits  Environmental impacts and  Effects on prosperity That result from mining activities - Working Paper 138 by PTT

24 I.Benefits are clearly greater than their adverse external impacts II.Individual adverse experience by local people can be quite significant III.Mining projects with their local characteristics are quite different

25 MINING POLICY and SOCIAL LICENCE - times are changing
