The article reviews the concept of environmental and social risks, and presents the methodology for constructing a profile and a map of environmental and social risks for a mining operation. The study provides a rationale for selecting a group of risk-forming factors, both environmental and social; a petal map of environmental and social risks of Kuzbass mining operations is developed. The scaling criteria for the impact of environmental and social risks on the activities of mining operations and the author's principles of sustainable use of natural resources are proposed, including an integrated approach to solving the problems of land reclamation and disposal of solid household waste in the coal-mining region; forecasting and regulation of the introduction of alien objects; environmentally friendly technologies, and minimization of emissions into the biosphere. The implementation of the above principles will help improve the environmental situation. An algorithm of actions in the event of risk events has also been developed.
