History and Practice of the Law of Mines and Minerals
This practical book brings together the wide-ranging aspects of mining law and is a necessary addition to the library shelves of both institutions and operating companies. On discovering there was no set text on mining law for her students at Kirkcaldy Technical College, Jean decided to write the definitive book on the topic!
Gap in the Market
This book neatly fills the gap in the market between a complicated reference work for academia and a surface approach. Cases and Acts of Law are used as illustration and cover specifically British law for mines, quarries and minerals. Topics embrace ownership and support, Coal Industry Acts, health and safety, land charges and registration, wages and employment, environmental constraints, pollution and the Metalliferous Mines Regulations Act. The reasoning, philosophy and history underlying the laws are given in a readable and clear manner.
Written by a Barrister-at-Law, who is also an educationalist and has clearly made a life-long study of her subject as a teacher in this field, this book fills a gap that should benefit students and teachers as well as those engaged in the extractive industries. The Mining Engineer.
An excellent book which brings together for the first time under one cover the wide-ranging aspects of mining law, i.e. ownership and support, environmental constraints, health and safety. The Land and Mining Surveyor.
Law for the non-lawyer is not easily digestible but Jean Cantlie Stewart’s book is more palatable than most legal expositions. Mining Review.
