By John Southalan 

Mining Law and Policy: International Perspectives explains the key legal issues in the regulation of mining. 

The book starts with an overview of the mineral sector and broader forces which influence (and are impacted by) mineral regulation including mineral economics, sustainable development and other policy considerations. In addition to a broad summary of how governments regulate mining, the book follows with seven chapters examining the legal issues in: 

  • mineral rights/permits (including types and allocation of rights, dealings in mineral rights, impairment of rights); 
  • land access & use (including the interaction of mining and other land uses, ancillary rights for mining); 
  • mine development & production (including typical contract forms, workplace safety, government approvals, local content);
  • environmental & social issues (including impact assessment, human rights, artisanal mining, indigenous people, mine rehabilitation); 
  • financial & investment issues (including market regulation, government revenues & taxes, mining finance & accounting, non-government royalties); 
  • government agreements (including their scope, ownership & control issues, stabilisation, renegotiation, interaction with third parties); and vprocedural matters (including mining registers, dispute resolution, corruption, and regulatory impact assessment). 

The book is extensively referenced with examples drawn from over 250 laws and court decisions from twenty countries, and over 700 secondary materials including books, articles and government reports.
