As the development of the mining industries often regulates the resource acquisition potential and economic growth of the countries, it is one of the most prominent earning sources. Based on the different characteristics of the mining industries, this industry might be categorized under geophysical industries or chemical industries. Every process of production of resources generates by-products like wastewater and fine aggregates (sand). The present paper discusses a case of the waste management initiatives taken for a specific plant indicating waste to wealth creation in terms of alternate resource quantification and providing social sustainability.
