SMM News: in order to implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech at the forum on further promoting the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, and to implement the task of the State Council's three-year action plan to win the Blue Sky Defense War, The Ministry of Natural Resources held an on-site meeting in Yueyang City, Hunan Province to deploy the ecological restoration of open-pit mines in key areas such as the Yangtze River Economic Zone, the surrounding Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, and the Fenwei Plain. Zhao long, vice minister of natural resources, and Chen Wenhao, vice governor of Hunan Province, attended the meeting and delivered speeches.
The Ministry of Natural Resources requires all localities to strengthen measures, cooperate with each other, highlight key points, take measures in line with local conditions, strictly control quality, strictly guard against the risks of a clean and honest government, and effectively ensure the effectiveness of ecological restoration in open-pit mines. In the comprehensive management of mines, the concentrated area of map spots can be divided into large restoration blocks, which is convenient for saving funds and systematic treatment. Areas that can be naturally restored are dominated by natural recovery, and appropriate protection measures can be taken, such as eliminating hidden dangers, setting up warning signs and fences, and so on.
The Ministry of Natural Resources stressed that according to the main problems currently existing in the mine, the "one mine, one policy" should determine the main restoration tasks. First of all, it is necessary to solve the hidden dangers of geological disasters caused by mining in order to ensure safety. Secondly, to restore land, forest and grass vegetation and to solve soil and water pollution, according to the concept that mountains and rivers, forests, lakes and lakes are a community of life, so that the ecosystem can meet the standard of self-operation and reflect biodiversity. It is strictly forbidden to carry out the construction of "bonsai" in the name of building a mine park. At the same time, we should encourage all localities to actively explore policies, use policy guidance to drive social capital investment, sum up and popularize experience in a timely manner, play a typical exemplary and leading role, and form a new governance model that can be replicated and popularized. The Ministry of Natural Resources will use satellite remote sensing to monitor progress on a semi-annual basis while organizing spot checks on an irregular basis.
The responsible comrades of the relevant departments and bureaus of the Ministry of Natural Resources, the responsible departments of the five provinces (cities) in charge of natural resources in the Yangtze River Economic Belt, around Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, and the Fen-Wei Plain area attended the meeting. The ecological restoration of the former Junshan Hualong wharf and the open pit mine of Hongxiang quarry in Huarong County were investigated in the East Dongting Lake National Nature Reserve.
