Mineral resource management and society: perspectives from Norway

AUTHORS: Rognvald Boyd, Rolv Dahl, Eyolf Erichsen & Peer-Richard Neeb

ABSTRACT: Public focus on the mineral potential of Norway and on the importance of responsible management of its mineral resources has increased dramatically within the last five years. This encompasses both the positive impact of the mining industry within Norway and the role it plays in meeting national and international demand for its products. The key roles of the geoscience community and the mining industry have included intensive communication with decision makers and with the public. The government has presented a national mineral strategy which includes further emphasis on “best practice” in relation to the sustainability of the industry. The industry already has many elements which are directed towards sustainability at different levels of its markets.
