    Appendix 2 Environmental and Social Impacts of Mining

    sensitivity of specific ecosystems to mining is examined in Box A2.1. The most obvious impact to biodiversity from mining is the removal of vegetation which in turn alters the availability of food and shelter for wildlife. At a broader scale mining may impact biodiversity by changing species composition and structure. For example

    Apr 25 2017 Often the worst effects of mining activities are observed after the mining process has ceased. The destruction or drastic modification of the pre-mined landscape can have a catastrophic impact on the biodiversity of that area. Mining leads to a massive habitat loss for a diversity of flora and fauna ranging from soil microorganisms to large .

    Aug 26 2008 Mining is widely regarded as having adverse effects on environment of both magnitude and diversity. Some of these effects include erosion formation of sinkhole biodiversity loss and contamination of groundwater by chemical from the mining process in general and open-pit mining in particular. As such a repeatable process to evaluate these effects primarily aims to diminish them.
