British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium

Resource management at Highland Valley Copper Munro, W. K. D.


Resource management in today's setting involves the recognition and basic understanding of the interrelationships and interdependencies within the ecosystem. The successful extraction of mineral resources requires an equally well-structured and results-oriented approach to the land and water management. Land and water management involves establishing baselines of information, carrying out appropriate research, conducting suitable field trials, developing end land use plans, and carrying out the accepted plan. Consultation and consensus represent new approaches which recognize the multi-use demands on the physical resources of the earth by our society. This integrated resource management approach will serve as the framework for Highland Valley Copper.
