With the potential for such impacts, effective mining laws and regulations must be enforced and strengthened. Metallic mining including iron ore. The extraction of metallic minerals such as iron, zinc or copper has a long history in Wisconsin, but legal regulation of their environmental impact and safety are a relatively recent development.
The National Environment Management Act, 1998 Act No. 107 of 1998 the NEMA intro-duced the environmental impact management regime, in particular the Environmental Impact Assessment EIA process. The EIA process is a tool which requires the integra-tion of social, economic and environmental factors in the planning, implementation and
An essential aspect of conducting an EIA is to determine the level of impact of the proposed project, development or initiative. When we look at major development projectsespecially those involving natural resources, such as mining, hydroelectric dams, or oil extractionwe can say for certain that they will require an environmental and social impact assessment.
