This study aims to provide empirical evidence on community acceptance of mining sector. The survey involved in particular the department of environment in all regencies / cities in Lampung province. This survey model is very effective in obtaining data that is suitable for target participants, relatively faster because access to mining locations is easier, and cheaper. The questionnaire was compiled using simple sentences to avoid the possible maturation in a prolonged survey. There are seven variables measured in this study. First is governance, measured by the existence of rules and legislation. The assumption is that these rules and regulations can ensure companies carry out mining activities according to the rules and the government can guarantee the accountability of mining companies. The second is mining acceptance, measured by tolerance, accept, approve, and embrace. Third is living cost, measured by how much the community sacrifices to fulfill basic needs. Fourth is environmental cost, measured by environmental quality (low pollution). Fifth, improving infrastructure, measured by improvements and facilities in supporting economic activities. Sixth is the impact of other industries, measured by the growth of other industry sectors, and the seventh is increasing welfare and greater employment opportunities for the community. The study found empirical evidence that public acceptance of mining companies is influenced by several factors, including the cost of living, quality of the environment, community involvement, improved infrastructure, the impact of other industries, and public welfare.
