Paull, David; Banks, Glenn; Ballard, Christopher; Gillies, David

Description

Mining is an integral part of the development of many countries in the Asia-Pacific region and is associated with adverse environmental and social impacts. The monitoring of mining in remote locations is problematic due to difficulties of access.
