Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has accepted a geological and mineral technique by means of 2030, concentrating on strategic minerals
throughout Vietnam’s mainland, coastal waters, and islands.
The plan goals to bolster socio-economic growth, nationwide mineral reserves,
defence, safety, and pure catastrophe prevention.
These goals are set out in Determination No. 334/QD-TTg, approving the Geological and
Mineral Technique to 2030, with a imaginative and prescient in direction of 2045.
The principle aim of this technique is to finish the investigation and evaluation
of strategic and vital minerals on the mainland and in coastal waters and
islands, in addition to detect and examine minerals in deep sea and offshore
The technique additionally goals to discover minerals equivalent to coal, uranium,
titanium-zircon, uncommon earth, apatite, copper, nickel, tin, bauxite, glass sand,
and different minerals by 2045 whereas balancing the exploitation and nationwide
mineral reserve for a lot of strategic, vital, and large-scale minerals.
The technique additionally focuses on the strict administration, economical and environment friendly
use of mineral assets, investing in mining and mineral processing
expertise, forming a sophisticated and fashionable mining business that goes in line
with environmental safety and a round, inexperienced economic system, local weather change
adaptation and in direction of carbon neutrality. It’s also anticipated to finish fragmented
and out-of-date mineral mining and processing institutions that pollute the
The precise aims of the technique embody finishing 85 per cent of the
geological and mineral mapping space on the scale of 1:50,000 of the mainland by
2030; full the investigation and evaluation of mineral potential in
promising buildings within the North Central and South Central areas.
One other aim of the technique is to research, consider and map geological
hazards, environmental geology of the provinces within the mountainous and coastal
areas of the Mekong Delta; survey and mapping of geological heritage
nationwide; full investigation and mapping of environmental geology of
areas containing poisonous and radioactive minerals; investigation and evaluation
of sand, gravel and building supplies in river basins.
It additionally contains forming mineral processing industrial parks with superior
expertise and scale commensurate with the potential of every mineral,
synchronised with regional infrastructure growth.
The technique additionally goals to develop expertise for deep processing of minerals,
promote cooperation in scientific and technological analysis, expertise
switch, coaching and growth of human assets in geology and minerals
in an effort to primarily serve the wants of the economic system, and try in direction of forming
a sophisticated and fashionable mining and mineral processing business related to a
round economic system mannequin, a inexperienced economic system equal to that of superior
nations in Asia by 2045.
Based on the event orientation, when it comes to geology, precedence shall
be given to implementing and finishing the mapping of mineral geology on the
scale of 1:50,000 of the mainland and islands, marine mineral geological survey
on the scale of 1:500,000, investigating, discovering and finding areas with
mineral potential, particularly strategic and vital minerals.
The technique additionally focuses on investigating and forecasting geological hazards
in mountainous and midland provinces and establishing a complete distant
sensing identification expertise system for areas with potential dangers of
geological hazards, zoning dangers, synthesise and kind a geological hazard danger
administration mannequin to serve catastrophe prevention and mitigation work.
When it comes to minerals, the technique goals to assessment and find nationwide mineral
reserve areas, balancing between deliberate use demand and long-term reserve for
socio-economic growth, defence and safety assurance, and environmental
safety. Exploration actions must adjust to the planning,
appropriate to the potential of every sort of mineral.
The mining business must adjust to the planning, use superior
expertise and tools, appropriate to every potential sort of mineral, and
maximise the restoration of helpful substances whereas guaranteeing environmental
safety. For minerals with massive and concentrated reserves, mining tasks
have to be carried out whereas utilizing superior expertise, fashionable tools, and
sustainable environmental safety.
The technique emphasises the analysis and use of superior expertise in
exploiting building supplies and guaranteeing the steadiness and concord between
export and import, guaranteeing home demand, and supplying uncooked supplies for
