Efforts to identify and address the factors underlying the lack of participation of ranchers in rehabilitation and restoration of rangelands constitute an essential step towards sustainable development. Many areas of natural resources such as rangelands have been affected by mining operations which has consequently various economics, social, ecological and environmental influences on the local residents. Therefore, the present study aimed to assess the effects of mining projects in this regard in Sanandaj. Analysis of the data was performed through multiple regression (stepwise method) by spss20. The results indicated that the lack of participation among the majority of the ranchers (59. 2 %) was at average and above average. On the other hand, there was a significant positive correlation (p<0. 01) between the indices of economic, social, environmental and ecological impacts resulting from mining activities and the lack of participation. Based on the findings, indicators of economic and ecological consequences in total account for 83% of the variance in lack of participation. Hence, in order to increase participation of the ranchers in rehabilitation and restoration of rangelands in Sanandaj, paying particular attention to the abovementioned factors seems to be essential.
