Under the guidance of the concept of “Clean waters and green mountains are assets”, our province has taken the lead in launching the exploration and practice of green mine construction in the country, building a mechanism for the development of green mining that is compatible with the construction of an ecological civilization, and effectively enhancing the exploitation and utilization of mineral resources. At present, the mining development in this province has basically achieved four major transformations, and as a result a total of 468 green mines have been built across the province, with a completion rate of 79%, making “Beautiful Zhejiang” even more attractive and providing the whole country with Zhejiang experience.
