Abstract: "Minerals are archetypical non-renewable resource. Common property studies have not made much foray into these resources. However, there is a need to shift from this paradigm. One of the important commons problem created by mining activities is that of diversion of land. Using India as a case study this paper lists the varieties of problems created by mining activities in the areas of land use and environment degradation. Thereafter it shows how common property approach can be used or is being used to overcome some of these problems. The paper concludes that in the emerging global order the analytical paradigm of commons would be of substantive use for management of non-renewable resources."
