Paragraph 2.7

Progressive reduction in the amount of minerals extraction from the PDNP may have implications not only in the East Midlands Region but in other regions.

An incorrect reference is made to "resources of economic value". To be defined a resource, a mineral deposit must be of economic value. In that respect, the definition of "mineral resource" in Appendix A is also incorrect, as is the reference to a "potential resource" of deep coal in Para. 4.13.
