• Strictly speaking, sustainable development requires that
    human activities are undertaken in such a manner that they
    do not eliminate options for future generations. Clearly, once
    a given mineral deposit has been mined to exhaustion, future
    generations do not have the option of mining it again; hence
    mining fails to qualify as sustainable development sensu
    stricto (1). Consequently, mining can only ever, at best, aspire
    to compatibility with sustainable development sensu lato,
