Further, mining itself occupies less than one-tenth of 1 per cent of EC's total land base. This argument, however, does not include the 'shadow' effect of mining, which includes the roads and the secondary development that takes place alongside the mine. 40 From this perspective, mining interests object to having the same land-use restrictions placed on them as is the case with forestry. With land-use decisions that are often determined with the forestry sector in mind, the unique requirements and effects of mining may tend to get overlooked.

If these associations can learn to work more closely together, they might be able to develop some self-discipline that will allow them to play a more effective role in the public policy arena. As noted above, many prospectors and developers, in particular, were attracted to the lifestyle for the independence and freedom that it offered. These individuals may be the least prepared of any to work in the new proposed environment. On the other hand, if the mineral sector is able to build on the innovative WMI accord, and move toward a long-term coordinated strategy, it may find itself a world leader in a way that goes far beyond the production of minerals and technical expertise (as historically has been the case).

3S The late twentieth-century high-tech, high-speed society is often characterized as one in which citizens are alienated from the decisions that deeply affect their lives. Public consultation is often seen as a necessary way to increase the legitimacy of governments and to appease conflicting public demands. This is particularly the case with sustainable development, where somehow a balance must be achieved between the natural environment and the economy. Roundtables, therefore, constitute a fundamental component of the recommendations of the well-known United Nations Brundtland Commission's report on sustainable development entitled Our Common Future.
