The comprehensive utilization of resources has become an urgent task to transform the mode of economic growth, develop a circular economy, build a resource-saving and environment-friendly society. The study conducted descriptive analysis to examine the resource-based utilization of mineral mining operations in Panzhihua City, China, through interviews with management and employees using questionnaires. It systematically described various aspects of mining operations, such as resource annual production, electric power consumption, manpower utilization, facilities and equipment, logistics, and production costs. Challenges highlighted included the gradual process of obtaining buy-in from managers and employees and convincing consumers to prioritize environmental protection. Based on these findings, a strategic plan was developed for mineral mining operators in Panzhihua City, focusing on addressing weaknesses and implementing strategies to improve resource utilization in areas like production, power consumption, manpower utilization, facilities, equipment, logistics, and production costs. These insights and strategies are crucial for mining operators in Panzhihua City to navigate challenges effectively and improve overall performance in resource utilization and allocation, ensuring long-term success and sustainability in the competitive mining industry landscape.
