Mining Extraction Global Forest Atlas

Oil, coal, gas, and minerals extraction reduce forest cover, but also lead to more long term impacts such as pollution, infrastructure development and increased human activity. Extractive industries produce toxic water and chemicals as byproducts that can contaminate groundwater and kill flora and fauna.

Mining’s big environmental footprint in the Amazon

Deforestation for mining purposes, especially illegal operations, is more complete than that caused by the logging trade, for example, as not only is the forest burned down, stripping away the earth and making regrowth much harder, but also rivers and streams often become contaminated by mining waste such as mercury.

Impact of mining and forest regeneration on small mammal ...

Here, we assessed the impact of surface mining and the success of forest rehabilitation on small mammal diversity in the Western Region of Ghana. We surveyed small mammals in the project area and two adjoining forest reserves (control sites) before the mining operation and 10 years after mine closure and forest rehabilitation (topsoil replacement and revegetation). The forest

Environmental Risks of Mining

Mining is an inherently invasive process that can cause damage to a landscape in an area much larger than the mining site itself. The effects of this damage can continue years after a mine has shut down, including the addition to greenhouse gasses, death of flora and fauna, and erosion of land and habitat. An example of the scarred land of a Chinese mine is shown above. Water

Impact of Bauxite Mining on Forest Fire Management ...

The long term effect of bauxite mining will therefore leave the State with a very difficult and costly forest to manage. Fuel reduction burns, which are essential to protect the remainder of the forest as well as nearby townships ands recreation areas, will necessarily be expensive small burns. This should require resourcing by the mining company in perpetuity.

Effects of Mining on the Environment and Wildlife

09/03/2017  Mining can lead to the destruction of habitats in surrounding areas. The process begins with deforestation. The land above the mine must be cleared of all obstructions to allow the miners to go to work. Sadly, most mining companies are quite willing to destroy an entire forest to get access to mineral wealth. Deforestation has several effects ...

Dams and their effects on forest and tribal people

The loss of forest and productive land cannot be ignored. It is calculated that between 1951 and 1976 big river valley projects have swallowed half a million hectares of forestland and nearly one-tenth of the area which has benefited from irrigation. The Keno river project in Nigeria has revealed major adverse environmental effects. Wide destruction of forests has reduced the availability of ...

08/03/2017  Mining. Mining is done by open and close mining. Open mining is a mining done on a land surface. This kind of mining can change topography and condition of land surface, and it can change ecology system of the surrounding area. Open mining eliminate all vegetation on the land surface because the soil will be exploited and carried away to take the mineral mines inside. 6.
