All stages of a mines life cycle require knowledge of environmental impact based on adequate expertise. One of GTK’s strengths is having a total view of geology. It allows for reliable assessment of the environmental impacts of mining. Forecasting changes, on the other hand, helps in controlling and minimising hazardous impacts. Knowledge of the natural changes and condition of soil, groundwater, and lake and stream sediments before commencing mining operations provide a solid basis for GTK’s environmental reports and transparent and open impact and risk assessment.

This guide is the first of its kind in Europe. It covers the entire lifecycle of mining operations, from ore prospecting and mine planning, through production, all the way to mine closure and restoration. The publication is the fruit of a joint financing project which GTK took part of.
