Environmentally Sound Practices in the Aggregates Industry: Chapter 06: Community Relations and Land Reclamation
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 6 of 7 for this video. The aesthetics of the mine site should be appealing to the community to promote a positive public image. Some mining sites will hold an open house so neighbors can tour the operation. Safety is paramount onsite for workers and visitors. Land is revegitated as the mining operation no longer needs it. These reclaimed lands can become wildlife preserves and parks. These practices will improve community relations for the entire mining industry.
