Recounting, the Minister pointed out that although discussions at the Dialogue were productive and comprehensive, it should not end there but rather zero in on specific issues, exemplifying the issue of having surface mining as opposed to underground mining and the question of restricting small scale mining to prevent environmental degradation, as a topic that can be critically examined.

He noted that due to the very consequential nature of the issues to be discussed, a lot more of such dialogues can be organized to think through some of these specific issues without having to make it a nationwide campaign.
