In the last two years alone, one site lists 10 major tailings dam failures alone; environmental damage from tailing ponds is only the thin end of the wedge when it comes to the wider remit of potential environmental consequences arising from mineral extraction.

Yet not one of those events listed was in China, despite half the world’s metals being refined and produced there, and a sizable proportion of the world’s mines being in China.

Why is that? Is it because these incidents don’t happen in China?

  1. One more thing. In my opinion that there are several travel insurance web sites of reliable companies that let you enter your vacation details and acquire you the rates. You can also purchase your international travel insurance policy online by using the credit card. Everything you need to do would be to enter your travel information and you can begin to see the plans side-by-side. Only find the plan that suits your financial allowance and needs and after that use your bank credit card to buy them. Travel insurance on the internet is a good way to search for a trustworthy company regarding international travel cover. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  3. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that
    “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and

  6. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve
    either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my agreement. Do you
    know any methods to help prevent content from being
    ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

  7. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people
    could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
