A no-brainer. Mining concerns should be required to clean up after themselves, and at their own expense.

Like oil and gas industries, the mining industry leaves far too much damage behind itself to really be able to say it's beneficial in the long run. As with those other industries, mining pollutes at will and doesn't seem to care what ill effects it leaves behind.
