Abstract
The economy relies heavily on resources in China, which is particularly evident in resource-based cities where the resources industry takes up a high proportion in economic structure. The local mining industry affects or determines all social and economic aspects of the area. Whether the mining industry can achieve sustainability decides the future development of the region. This paper analyzes the fundamental implications of sustainability of mining industry from two logic perspectives, i.e. the economic and social development stages and microcosmic enterprises. We review the evaluation system of sustainable development of mining industry and establish an evaluation indicator system which covers four sub-objectives and 21 indicators. On the basis of feasibility principles, the lateral and vertical evaluations on the sustainability are performed on 8 resource-based cities including Jiaozuo. Being consistent with the actual situations, the conclusion has reference value for making policies.
