This book analyzes the legal regime of the exploitation of the mineral resources in the Antarctic. Therefore, it elaborates on the development of the Antarctic Treaty and the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS). The author examines the history and influence of the Convention for the Regulation of Antarctic Mineral Resource Activities (CRAMRA), which purpose it is to prohibit unregulated mineral resource activities in Antarctica, and its provisions are extremely strict with the aim of environmental protection. Through analyzing and comparing the CRAMRA and the 1991 Environmental Protocol, the book concludes that it is not beyond credulity to imagine that a new round of discussion on Antarctic mineral exploration will be held in the near future.

The author introduces the Antarctic Treaty as well as the Antarctic Treaty System and elaborates on the Convention for the Regulation of Antarctic Mineral Resource Activities (CRAMRA). By comparing CRAMRA to the 1991 Protocol, she concludes that future discussions on Antarctic mineral exploration would learn from the experiences of CRAMRA.
