Under the new situation, the geological and mining industry is in a shift period of great change and transformation. Generally speaking, the foundation and antecedent attributes of geological and mineral work still exist, the long-term trend towards a better one remains unchanged, and the demand of economic construction for the geological and mineral industry remains unchanged, but profound changes are taking place in the system and structure, which brings new opportunities for the transformation and development of the geological and mineral industry.
(1) Fully affirm the brilliant achievements made by the geological and mineral industry
First, the achievements of economic development in the geological and mineral industry are indispensable. The exploration and development of the geological and mineral industry has ensured the supply of resources in China, supported the development of more than 1600 large mines and the existence and development of more than 400 mining towns. The second is to optimize the geological and mineral industry and increase the service areas. Since the new century, 44% of China's geological and mining units have Grade A qualifications, and their business scope has expanded to mining, engineering survey, disaster prevention and control, marine survey and other fields. Thirdly, strong accumulation of science and technology. Geological and mineral industry research has accumulated a large number of advanced science and technology for exploration, mining and comprehensive utilization, and the industry has abundant technical resources.
(2) attaching great importance to the important position of the geological and mineral industry
First of all, the geological and mineral industry is the basic industry in the national economic system, which effectively guarantees the healthy and rapid development of the economy and society. Without ore raw materials, economic construction and daily life are castles in the air, and industrial and infrastructure construction cannot be carried out. Secondly, economic development has a huge demand for the geological and mineral industry. In the future, the fields of national energy security, environmental protection, disaster prevention and mitigation, marine power construction and national defense construction can not be separated from the support of the mining industry. Thirdly, the fundamentals of the geological and mineral industry have been improving for a long time.
(3) A correct view of the grim situation facing the geological and mining industry
It should be clearly seen that China is now in the middle and late stages of industrialization, which is the key stage of the transition from growth to upgrading, structural adjustment and policy digestion. Environmental damage and pollution caused by high-speed industrialization need to be remedied and restored. It is inevitable that the geological and mining industry will change from resource-based to environmental-based. Crisis is opportunity and change is motive force. Faced with the drastic changes in the external environment, the geological and mineral industry should correctly look at the situation, recognize its position and advantages, seize opportunities, face difficulties, accelerate the transformation and development of the geological and mineral industry, and re-innovate brilliance.
