VALUATION OF
 Economic benefits
 Environmental impacts and
 Effects on prosperity
That result from mining activities
- Working Paper 138 by PTT
I. Benefits are clearly greater than their
adverse external impacts
II. Individual adverse experience by local
people can be quite significant
III. Mining projects with their local
characteristics are quite different
