Environmental Impacts of Mining

The following sections describe the potential environmental impacts that can occur due to mining activities. Today, many of these environmental impacts are minimized as a result of well-designed, well-operated, and well-regulated mining operations. Although this is the case, there are many abandoned sites around the U.S. and around the world that continue to adversely affect the environment.
