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.

The Health and Environmental Impact of Uranium Mining
Uranium mining facilities produce tailings that generally are disposed of in near surface impoundments close to the mine. These tailings pose serious environmental and health risks in the form of Randon emission, windblown dust dispersal and leaching of contaminants including heavy metals and arsenic into the water. 
The NIOSH Mine and Mine Worker Charts are interactive graphs, maps, and tables for the U.S. mining industry that show data over multiple or single years. Users can select a variety of breakdowns for statistics, including number of active mines in each sector by year; number of employees and employee hours worked by sector; fatal and nonfatal injury counts and rates

Minimization of the negative effects of sand-and-gravel mining requires a detailed understanding of the response of the channel to mining disturbances. Decisions on where to mine, how much and how often require the definition of a reference state, i.e., a minimally acceptable or agreed-upon physical and biological condition of the channel.

2020/7/14In 2018, China produced 120 000 metric tons of total rare earths while the US produced a mere 15 000. The mining of rare earth metals occurs mainly in southeastern China, in provinces like Jiangxi and Fujian. But there is also mining as north as Inner Mongolia and as west as Sichuan. Over the last decade and a half, China has also moved to
2012/7/27Reports indicated that Yanomani populations have fallen significantly since the first incursion of miners in the 1980s. While deforestation and chemical pollution from mining can impact the rainforest environment, downstream aquatic habitats fare worse. Increased sediment loads and reduced water flows can seriously affect local fish populations.
Toxic waste spills have had devastating consequences in Romania, China, Ghana, Russia, Peru, South Africa, and other countries. In 2014, a dam collapsed at the Mount Polley gold and copper mine in British Columbia, sending about 25 million cubic meters of cyanide-laden waste into nearby rivers and lakes—enough to fill about 9,800 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

The Actual Difference Between Surface and Underground Mining
Main Difference. In surface mining, the ore is accessed directly from the Earth's surface, and contact is maintained with the surface throughout the operation. Underground or subsurface mining is accomplished with the help of tunnels going into the Earth, and does not occur on the surface. Working Principle.
