Abstract

The industry connected to mining activity is one of the most important for Italian economy, both for the raw materials production and for the new technologies connected to exploitation and dressing plants. It is linked not only to mines as such but also, in few cases, to ancient quarry dumps valorization. The volumes of quarry wastes are a clear example of the problems connected to mining activities: the exploitation works can cause an evident hazard for the population, as well as an important environmental and landscape impacts for touristic areas. For those reasons a systematic reuse of the rock wastes, as secondary raw materials, should be essential: it is important to guarantee a sufficient quantity of wastes/resources to justify the construction of a new treatment plant, the constancy of the wastes/resources supply and the convenience of the transport system. Mining activities and wastes management is also complicated by “quarry wastes” Italian regulation (artt. 183 and 186 D.Lgs. 152/06, D.Lgs. 117/08 e L. 13/09): to guarantee a correct management of exploited materials we have to distinguish “wastes” from “by products”, “associated products”, “secondary raw materials”, but new Italian regulations, which is complex and, sometimes, conflicting, do not help people involved in “wastes management” (Public Administration, mines and dressing plants owners, etc…) (BOZZOLA et alii., 2008).
