Mining And Water Pollution

Mining and Water Pollution - Safe Drinking Water Foundation

17.12.2016  Mining affects fresh water through heavy use of water in processing ore, and through water pollution from discharged mine effluent and seepage from tailings and waste rock impoundments. Increasingly, human activities such as mining threaten the water sources on which we all depend.

How to Control Pollution in Mining Industry?

Mine Water Pollution: The mining Industry has to discharge millions of gallons of water every day to the adjacent water courses thereby may cause water pollution problems in and around the mining areas. Mine water discharge also forms the main source of various water supplies particularly potable in the thickly populated coal fields.

Pollution from Mining - University of Illinois Urbana ...

Mining provides essential raw materials for an industrialized society. However, it causes serious pollution of surface and groundwater. Transferring minerals from deep below the surface to the surface promotes oxidation reactions. Oxidation of iron salts and of sulfur-containing materials in the presence of water leads to highly acidic solutions. Toxic substances are brought to the

Environmental effects of mining - Wikipedia

Water pollution. Mining can have harmful effects on surrounding surface and groundwater. If proper precautions are not taken, unnaturally high concentrations of chemicals, such as arsenic, sulfuric acid, and mercury can spread over a significant area of surface or subsurface water. Large amounts of water used for mine drainage, mine cooling, aqueous extraction and other

The Health and Environmental Impact of Uranium Mining

Surface mining or open-pit mining depends on the removal of all surface soil and rock covering the desired Uranium. While it is safer for the miners than underground mines since they are not exposed to roof-falls or pneumoconiosis, it blasts 30 times more topsoil than Uranium ore and the resulting land is left with radioactive, toxic elements and increased erosion, landslides and
