LIMA, Hernani Mota de; FLORES, José Cruz do Carmo  and  COSTA, Flávio Luiz. Plano de recuperação de áreas degradadas versus plano de fechamento de mina: um estudo comparativo. Rem: Rev. Esc. Minas [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.4, pp.397-402. ISSN 0370-4467.

This paper reports the results of an analysis of 20 Plans for Rehabilitation of Degraded Areas (PRADs) prepared for mines located in the Iron Quadrangle (MG) in accordance with the Decree nº 97.632, dated April 10th of 1989. Usually PRAD has been understood as a mine closure plan. Therefore, the objective of this study was to check PRADs contents and compliance with the Norm NBR 13030 - "Elaboration and Presentation of rehabilitation project for impacted areas by mining", as well as, to compare its contents with a mine closure plan, in order to establish similarities and differences between them. This work presents the results of this comparative analysis; highlights the environmental, socio-economic and cultural risks of taking a PRAD as a mine closure plan; shows the necessity of differing PRAD from a mine closure plan and stresses the requirements' overlap for mine companies.

Keywords : Mine rehabilitation; closure plan.
