Paper Abstract

In the recent 50 years, the exploitation of mineral products and water resources in XinJiang has developed greatly, which contributes a lot to the development of economy and society in the region. However, the ecological environment problems caused by it have already aroused great attention. It is also an urgent mission for the researcher to solve the problems of harmonizing the relation between the exploitation of resources and the sustainable development of ecological environment. Xinjiang, which lies in the middle of Eurasia, is one of the aridest areas in China, its ecological environment is vulnerable. For a long time, the irrational exploitation of oil and gas resources, solid mineral products resources (such as coal resources, nonmetallic metal and precious metal resources) and water resources has already brought about serious ecological environment problems.
