Over the last decade mine closure and wind-down have become increasingly common in a number of countries. As mining communities are often situated in remote areas, with most of the community dependent on the mine, these closures have far-reaching implications. This book addresses all aspects of closures with regard to the community and the problems facing the policy-maker. The authors aim to develop some understanding of the factors influencing miners and to examine the relative success of attempts to resolve the problems generated by closure. The book brings together case studies from Scandinavia, Australia and Canada. Each case study deals with one or more communities facing the closure or wind-down of mines upon which they depend. The particular case studies have been chosen with a view to exploring the different contexts and developing general guidelines for communities, companies and other policy-makers.
