Recommendations are provided to suggest analysis that would further the Community Task Force of the National Orphaned/Abandoned Mines Working Group mandate to foster community involvement in decision-making about remediation of abandoned mine sites. The recommendations are derived from gaps identified through the case study analysis. The areas that require further research, but are integral to the success of community involvement programs, include:

1. Community capacity-building processes that address the broader health and social concerns;

2. Re-training initiatives to address labour concerns in communities where there is economic difficulty after the mine closes. These training programs could focus on remediation and monitoring techniques;

3. Programs for initiating alternative and sustainable economies;

4. Experiences of direct community involvement in remediation projects; and

5. Investigation of community involvement in the remediation of small mine sites.
