The Environmental Impact of Opencast Coal Mining

THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OPENCAST COAL MINING by PAUL TOMLINSON Opencast mining has long been a source of argument between the environmental conservation lobbies and the National Coal Board Opencast Executive (NCBOE). Those objecting to opencast operations argue that, apart from certain specialist coals, such as anthracite, opencast coal is not needed to satisfy market

Negative impacts of open-cast mining on the environment

07/07/2015· A major part of iron ore, non-ferrous metals, brown coal, building materials and minerals for industry is being excavated in open-cast mines. This type of mining has a deep impact on the natural strata. Open-cast mining changes geological, hydrological and geotechnical conditions. It influences the existing ecological system and landscape. The dust and noise affect not only the atmosphere and

Opencast Mining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Protozoa as Indicators in Reclaimed Open-Cast Coal Mining Areas. Topsoil removal, as occurs in open-cast mining areas and during the preparation and use of high-mountain ski slopes, heavily impoverishes protozoa and soil life in general (Figure 8). However, colonization occurs within a few months. Abundances and biomasses in 2- up to 46-year-old afforested mine soils are in the same order as

Hydrogeological and environmental impact of coal

The Jharia coalfield is the most important and active minig region; it experiences groundwater inflow and affects groundwater levels in overlying aquifers, and it provides the basis for a conceptual model of the hydrogeological impacts of coal mining. The several sandstone aquifers of the overburden are separated by aquitards that limit vertical hydraulic connection, but the inflow responds to

Life cycle assessment of opencast coal mine production: a

The previous studies on the environmental impacts of opencast coal mine production were focused on a single production process. Moreover, mined land reclamation was an important process in opencast coal mine production; however, it was rarely considered in previous research. Therefore, this study attempted to perform a whole environmental impact analysis including land reclamation stage using

The Social and Environmental Consequences of Coal Mining

This case study focuses on the costs of the environmental and social effects of coal mining in South Africa, undertaken for export to the Netherlands. Coal mining imposes many external costs on its surroundings and the people who live in it. Some of these can be quantified by estimates, others are difficult to estimate. Coal mining is by nature disturbing and destructive of the environment
