ABSTRACT
As a reflection of the Industrial Revolution and the various natural disasters arising from the irrational and irresponsible economic growth of the planet, undoubtedly, the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (Stockholm Conference), held in 1972, in Sweden, stands for an important milestone in Environmental Law, especially to Western civilization, as it establishes the principles discussed even up to this day between the countries involved in it. From that conference, man began to worry about his attitude towards nature and started to rethink his ways so that he becomes aware that natural resources are finite and that we need to preserve them for present and future generations, under the threat of the extinction of human race. Therefore, various conferences, treaties and protocols have emerged in order to find viable solutions that can combine economic growth with sustainable development, or at least to a degree try to decrease negative human action on nature. In such context, the aim of this paper is to show that human focus has shifted from economic growth to economic development. Thus, population growth must consider economic, environmental and - most importantly - social aspects, especially when it comes to the mining activity, since several laws and other legal instruments have been and are still being created in order to reach out for the desired sustainable economic development in this sector of the Brazilian economy.
