Like corporate science, university science, or lay science, institutional links to the production of knowledge carry both general and specific cultural meaning. The debated economics of open-pit mining, as well as their unfathomable disturbances to local socionatural worlds—whose craters can span hundreds of square kilometers—have, as Fabiana Li points out, unearthed not only metals but also much conflict.

Morally compelled by a life of abundance, it generated the impetus for rigorous longitudinal heavy-metal monitoring and sacrificial forms of care to conduct research under often less-than-ideal social and technical circumstances.

As an institutional companion to scientific practice, the Catholic Church cloaked its data in trust, stabilizing the ethical uncertainty held against other, potentially corrupted sources of scientific knowledge.

Alternative development analyses, such as that of the Uruguayan social ecologist Eduardo Gudynas, contend that positive economic indicators belie massive environmental costs, the actual societal redistribution of wealth, and the inherent economic instability of an industry dependent on fluctuating global demand. Scientific activism responds to the centrality of technical expertise to state-industry practices that legitimize mega—mining projects Gudynas In a corner, a few too many lab coats overwhelmed a standing hanger, unfit for its task.
