In each country, optimal utilization of available & unused capital is one of the basics for sustainable development. In this direction, revision of abandoned mines in Iran is of special importance & it is necessary to reevaluate the mines & unused capital for proper utilization & increasing profit

Abandoned Mines Batabase of Iran:
One of the fundamentals in sustainable development of each country is the optimum usage of available and unused capitals. Parallel to this case, the review of abandoned mines in Iran is very significant. It is necessary to re-assess these mines to increase the exploitation and proper usage of them.
For this purpose, the National Geosciences Database of Iran has decided to compile all available data about these mines, and the arrangement of them under appropriate and executable structure will prepare a suitable condition to review and re-open these mines. These mines will be a suitable environment for domestic and foreign investors via presentation data under appropriate structures and three-dimensionally geometrical modelling. This situation is a positive step toward economically sustainable development. It is evident that the returns of capitals to the mining industry cycle produce economic development and employment.
On the other hand, if these mines ran out of their resources must not be abandoned because they have many hazards for inhabitants, environment and ecosystem of the region. Hope the re-examination of these mines and their safeties prevent from the damages of their being abandoned.
Abandoned mines- Description.
Mineral activity cycle is started from exploration operations. Fundamentally, the most significant stage is the accurate exploration operation to obtain sufficient data regarding mineral resources. At the last stage of exploration, development and feasibility phase commence, and being economic or uneconomic of mining operations in the favorite region is verified through obtained data from exploration operations and feasibility studies. If the result of feasibility stage is positive, mining operations are started, and mine is exploited. After finishing of this stage, mine is closed, and exploitation operations are stopped, but re-exploration operations are commenced. This stage, which is called rehabilitation, evaluates the other economic aspects of the resource. In case of possibility, mine is re-opened. If the assessment result is positive, and mine has a suitable mineral potential to re-open, the mine is activated. Otherwise, another stage, under the name of post closing is started to make a safe environment for the local residents.
The summary of the above-mentioned cases has been exhibited in the following figure.
