Environmental Impact of Mining

Environmental Impact of Mining

The proportion of the Earth�s surface area that is being mined is very small, but the local environmental impact can be great. Using the best methods, the impact during mining will be minimised and the longer-term impact after mine closure will be small. It is also possible to rehabilitate old mine workings from when environmental impacts were not a priority.
