Appendix 2 Environmental and Social Impacts of Mining

The key direct impact of mining on forest ecosystems is the removal of vegetation and canopy cover. Indirect impacts include road building and pipeline development, which may result in habitat fragmentation and increased access to remote areas.

Environmental impact of mining

Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes. These processes also have an impact on the atmosphere from the emissions of carbon which have

Environmental Risks of Mining

When companies break up materials during mining, the dust can release a variety of heavy metals commonly associated with health problems. As dust, these minerals (such as the asbestos like mineral riebeckite) can be absorbed into lung tissue, causing problems like pneumoconiosis and silicosis, commonly known as quot;Black Lungquot; (Paul amp; Campbell, 2011).
