While in remote regions of the Worlds mines frequently are operated as fly-in/fly-out undertakings, with little or no interactions with the surrounding areas, such modus operandi is neither desirable nor possible in most parts of Europe. MIREU’s aim is a sustained and sustainable long-term relationship between mining and metallurgical operations and their hosting regions.

Hence, the objectives of WP3 are to:

• Determine the framework conditions that are either conducive or hampering mining and metallurgical development in the MIREU regions;

• Suggest improvements, if deemed necessary;

• Provide the MIREU regions with a tool to balance costs and benefits of developing mining and metallurgy.
