Part D: Environment | 39. Other Natural Resources

Mining activities typically impact other natural resources both within and around the areas surrounding mining sites. In addition to general environmental concerns, a mining law may also address resources including (but not limited to): land, water, forestry and timber. These provisions typically will govern the interaction between mining title holders and land owners (individual and/or communal); when and to what extent both land owners, community members and mining title holders may use these resources (such as drawing from underground water reserves or logging); and whether the mining title holder needs additional licensing or approval from the regulating authority or other relevant government bodies in order to use any of these resources that exist within the boundaries of the license.
