This book offers six studies that analyze the effect that medium- and large-scale mines have on local communities. Each study evaluates the impact of the economic, social, cultural, and environmental ramifications of these mining operations on their respective communities. Their primary goal is to examine the costs and benefits of the mining operations. This book places strong emphasis on the sustainability of any benefits received by these communities.
