Abstract

Mine closure governance is increasing globally. This is in response to greater societal awareness of the economic, environmental, cumulative impact, and social consequences of abandoned and ineffectively closed mines and the sustainable development agenda in mining. However, “[t]he global development of these regulations has been uneven, with some jurisdictions still having little or no regulation in the matter, while others possess a robust governance framework”.
