It is very important to consider the social impacts of mining activities on the surrounding socioeconomic environment, and to incorporate Social Impact Assessment (SIA) into the operational activities of a mine as a management tool. However, the practice of SIA by mining companies is often largely lacking, especially in the developing nations of the world. To avoid such socioeconomic marginalisation by mining companies, the government of South Africa requires mining companies to develop and implement Social and Labour Plans (SLPs), which focus on promoting the long-term development of their workforces, employee households, communities and regions.
