From the Introduction:

This report makes a case for more responsible mining and for adoption -- at a minimum -- of the Golden Rules criteria.

The case studies that follow look at existing, proposed, or closed mines that violate one or more of the Golden Rules; their dirty practices risk tainting the reputation of mining companies and associated industries such as the jewelry industry.

Golden Rules: Making the case for responsible mining is not an attempt to single out specific mining companies or imply that operations that have not been included are without problems. It is simply a snapshot of some of the more problematic practices that must be reformed in order to improve the mining industry’s record, to address consumers’ growing concerns, and to make real differences in the lives of affected communities.
