The large-scale exploitation of small coal mines have brought about a series of environmental problems over recent 30 years in China, such as the large-area failure and subsidence of ground, underground water resources having been dried up and serious air and water sources pollutions in mining districts. In order to protect the environment, it is imperative to implement the reasonable exploitation of small coal mines. The issue expounds the specific measurements for ecological protection during Resource Integration among small coal mines. And it provided valuable ideas for the Resource Integrated Mine (RIM) to developing eco-economy, improving the ecological environment, and maintaining ecological safety under similar conditions.
