Under the current complicated economic situation, the downward pressure on the mining industry has not been alleviated, and the pressure on the ecological environment is increasing, it is more urgent to build a modern mining civilization. So, what kind of ideas should be followed to advance? We believe that on the one hand, we must learn from history and use it as a medium, summing up the successful experience of mining development. In the face of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation opportunities, we must accelerate the promotion of mining theory, systems, technology and equipment innovation, and inject new kinetic energy into the development of the mining industry; in the face of new trends and new features of mining development, we must rely on innovation-driven Development, actively explore new ways and new models for mining revitalization, and innovate the development path of mining. On the other hand, to achieve efficient and recycling of mineral resources, large-scale development and use of clean renewable energy, and gradually develop a circular economy development model characterized by rational use and reuse of mineral resources and mining that meets the requirements of ecological civilization. The development method reduces the disturbance of the mining development activities to the natural environment to the smallest possible extent. Similarly, to measure the degree of mining civilization in a country depends on the level of mining scientific research in this country and the level of development of mining technology. It depends on whether this country can rely on its own scientific and technological strength to solve its own major problems such as resources, environment and disasters. At the same time, we must contribute to the world’s mining technology in terms of scientific theoretical innovation, technological method innovation, and research and innovation. Adhere to the principle of saving priority, protecting priority, and restoring nature, and accelerating the establishment of a resource-saving and environment-friendly society. The report of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China clearly stated that to promote the construction of ecological civilization, we must adhere to the principle of saving priority, protecting priority, and restoring nature, and establishing a resource-saving society. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China will adhere to the basic national policy of conserving resources and protecting the environment, and will accelerate the reform of the ecological civilization system and the construction of “beautiful China” as the basic strategy. Handle the relationship between mining development, resource utilization, population growth and ecological environmental protection. At present, China’s economic development has entered a “new normal”, economic development has shifted from high-speed growth to medium-high speed growth; economic development mode has shifted from scale-type extensive growth to quality-efficient intensive growth; economic structure has shifted from incremental capacity expansion to adjustment. The depth of adjustment of stocks and excellent increments; economic development momentum is shifting from factor-driven and investment-driven to innovation-driven. To solve the development problems and develop the advantages of development, we must firmly establish and implement the development concept of innovation, coordination, green, openness and sharing. In accordance with the various laws, standards and systems that have been introduced, the construction of green mines will be comprehensively promoted, making it the main focus of modern mining civilization construction. Make full use of China’s favorable opportunity to build a modern industrial civilization, enrich and enrich the connotation of the generation of mining civilization. So far, industry and mining are still important foundations of the modern economic system. Industrial civilization and mining civilization are the basic civilizations of modern economic and social development. But we must also see that industrial civilization, including mining civilization, creates enormous wealth for mankind, and it also causes serious damage to resources and the environment. The post-industrial era of the 21st century has entered the sustainable development of a circular economy, eco-economic high-tech economic model, and the construction of an ecological civilization in which people and nature coexist harmoniously has become the common aspiration of people all over the world. Faced with the new situation in which the new round of industrial revolution is poised for a new era, the world’s major countries are exploring new ways of industrial civilization. China must seize the opportunity, take advantage of the momentum, and catch up with Western industrial civilization in all directions. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee has proposed a new development concept, which marks the formation of China’s new era of industrial civilization. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China emphasized that speeding up the construction of a manufacturing power and accelerating the development of advanced manufacturing. This provides an opportunity for the development of modern mining industry, and will certainly promote the quality transformation, efficiency change and dynamic transformation of China’s economic development, and write a new chapter in modern industrial civilization and modern mining civilization. Under the background of building an ecological civilization and beautiful China, China has marked the exploration and practice of green mines, and the construction of modern mining civilization has shown great vitality and broad prospects. We are convinced that with the continuous development of China’s economy and society and the continuous advancement of ecological civilization construction, modern mining civilization will also conform to the development of the times and will be more vigorous and vital.
