Topic outline

  • Programme information

    The Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) organises a training programme in Mine Water and Mine Waste Management  with the support from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Swedish EPA) and Luleå University of Technology (LTU). The programme is primarily offered to staff and management at government authorities tasked with permitting and inspecting mines.

    The training presents the science behind management of mine water and mine waste, and integrates several principles equally important to prevent and mitigate environmental impacts: professionalism, transparent processes and a human rights perspective.

    The aim is to reduce knowledge gaps between authorities and industry and to make information about mining and the environment readily available to all stakeholders. The training focusses on mine waste and mine water and aims to improve permitting procedures, the quality of inspection and reporting at the participating agencies.
