Best practice in small-scale gemstone mining: Sri Lanka national factsheet.

Abstract

This factsheet documents the general operational procedures followed by small-scale miners, which often skips conventional exploration and development stages. This is triggered by the economic needs of small-scale miners to produce as much as possible immediately. The factsheet then goes onto make recommendations, based on findings from the field, on elements of best practice related to the prospecting, production, safety and environmental aspects of Sri Lankan small-scale gem and semi-precious stone mining.
