Abstract

GRANDA, Wilmer José Vásquez  and  LIMA, Hernani Mota de. Aplicação do Índice Global de Sustentabilidade na explotação de coquina na Península de Santa Elena. Rem: Rev. Esc. Minas [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.3, pp.323-327. ISSN 0370-4467.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0370-44672006000300012.

In Santa Elena's Peninsula (Ecuador), the artisanal and mechanical mining of coquina rock work in parallel. In order to establish the sustainability of the exploitation, indicators were chosen that were sufficiently flexible for local reality and easy to apply. To determine how sustainable the coquina exploitation is, the Global Sustainability Index (GSI) was used. This study presents the GSI results for the Morro Tablazo artisanal exploitation case.

Keywords : sustainability indicators; small mining operations.
