Some Sentences Restricting Illegal Mining

Informal and small scale miners in the south of the country are protesting a new law that will make informal mining a crime.The new law is part of a series of efforts by the national government to regulate mining in madre de dios, a region considered by many as an environmental disaster.According to the state news agency andina, meza is calling for dialogue between authorities and informal miners because the city has been besieged by over 10,000 protesters.'all businesses have been forced to close.Police surveillance is limited.The two most important markets have been closed.The miners threatened to take over the main road which would worsen the situation much more,' meza was quoted as saying.National informal miners association fedemin kicked off an indefinite protest in madre de dios region on monday, demanding the government to revoke a new decree that regularizes small-scale and artisanal operations.The regulation also involves the armed forces and the public prosecutor's office contribution.Illegal mining in the area involves about 30,000 people, who earn more than five times the national minimum wage.D.L.1102, published feb.29 in the official gazette el peruano, considers sentences of between four to eight years' imprisonment for these crimes, and up to 10 years on convictions for mining in unauthorized areas -natural reserves and peasant or indigenous community lands- as well as using river dredges, and contaminating irrigation or water systems used by humans.The sentences also apply in the case of employing minors in the industry, and to government officials who grant fraudulent authorizations for such operations.The financing of illegal mining, including the sale and distribution of equipment and products for the operations, is also now a crime.Small mining and artisanal operations that are legally registered are now also held fully responsible in this new legislation for any negative environmental impact they may cause, according to mining and environmental laws, and are to be required to remedy the damages.Although informal mining is the most notorious in the case of environmental damage -operating dredges on amazonian tributaries and destroying miles of rainforest- small legal mining operations across the country have for many years escaped the more stringent supervision applied to the large and more visible mining operations.The law will go into effect march 16, and illegal or informal miners as well as small mining operations are given 120 days to bring their operations into line with the new legislation.Ball mill:http://www.Hxjqchina.Com/product-list_34.Htmlchina sand washers:http://www.Hxjq-crusher.Com/16.Htmlstone crusher:http://www.Crusher-machine.Com/1.Html.
