The Impact of Surface and Coal Mining on Environment
The Impact of Surface and Coal Mining on Environment! Surface mining often leads to acid mine -drainage and silt run off which degrades quality of water. Acid mine drainage is an important source of increased acidity in natural waters. Its main constituents are sulphuric acid and iron compounds formed as a result of water, air and pyrite and are drained into the natural waterThe public health impacts of surface coal mining,,01/12/2015· Surface coal mining causes local air and water pollution. • Epidemiological data demonstrate that populations in mining communities have poor health. • Environmental and public health impacts are pronounced in mountaintop removal mining areas. • Additional studies of exposure, dose, and biological impact are needed. •Impact of greenhouse gases on surface coal mining in,,20/08/2018· This work explores the global warming impact of a surface coal mining operation in Southern Brazil, following the general ISO 14040 and 14044 frameworks (ISO, 2006a; ISO, 2006b). An LCA addresses the environmental aspects and potential environmental impacts associated with product, process, or service life cycles, i.e., it is a tool for compiling and assessing the inputs, outputs, and potential environmental impacts of a production system throughout its life cycle.
