In the remote Arctic Tundra of Canada, the impact of diamond mining on the wild environment has been negligible due to the strict recovery practices of the regulations that govern the industry. Continual planned management by environmental scientists ensures that the recovery process includes complete restoration of the land and protection of the wildlife and vegetation. This process of environmental remediation is currently being undertaken at the recently closed Argyle mine in Western Australia to ensure that the Kimberley remains as wild and pristine as possible for future generations.
The African nations of Namibia and Botswana, known for their strict conflict free diamond production and adherence to the Kimberley process also maintain the natural environment with land recovery practices governed by rigid environmental standards.
The modern diamond mining industry of today also brings socially responsible economic benefit to those countries where mining operations are located including investment in healthcare and education, roads, water and sewerage infrastructure for local communities.
