Table Of Contents: Mining and the Environment
1. Mining and Environmental Issues
Mining can create significant environmental problems. It can destroy habitats and produce waste products that pollute the land, water and air.
2. Mining and Land Reclamation
Land reclamation is a top priority of the mining industry today. It involves bringing in new topsoil and planting trees, grasses and other native plants.
3. Mineral Reserves and Recycling
