The Environmental Impact of Mining (Different Mining ...

2020-03-05  Open-pit mining, one of the most common forms, is one of the most damaging. Miners hollow out a section of land, digging down to create a workable area and extract valuable raw materials. This method leaves behind large pits in the earth and can contaminate the groundwater with chemicals used in the mining process.

Environmental Risks of Mining

Open pit mining, where material is excavated from an open pit, is one of the most common forms of mining for strategic minerals. This type of mining is particularly damaging to the environment because strategic minerals are often only available in small concentrations, which increases the amount of ore needed to be mined.

Most gold mining in Northern Ontario up to this point has been ‘underground,’ but a number of newer projects (both operating and proposed) use ‘open-pit’ techniques. The choice between the two is determined by the geology of the ore body and mineral economics, but given that both types of mines will likely be developed, this study examines the impacts of each. We consider a new open ...
