Abstract

This study investigates how social issues have been, and are being, assessed and managed within the mining industry through a case study of Northparkes Mines in central west New South Wales. The standard for social impact assessment in NSW and emerging industry guidelines on social responsibility were analysed against internationally accepted good practice. The successful approach taken by Northparkes Mines combined good practice impact assessment with a localised workforce, an integrated management team and context specific community engagement practices. It highlights that local communities can be empowered through development, that benefits can extend to both the community and the business and that the ongoing management of social issues will increasingly be critical to the success of the mining industry
