Oct 11, 20160183;32;Extraction of mineral resources is the backbone of the national economy in many developed and developing countries of the world. However, the exploitation can have many negative impacts on the immediate environment of the exploitation sites. In this study performed on some mining areas of the Moroccan Anti Atlas, four principal negative effects were detected effect on the
Some of the adverse effect of over exploitation of natural resources and industrial revolution are It has led to the large scale consumption of fossil fuels. It has led to large scale mining of ores. It has led to pollution of air, water and soil. It has led to depletion of ozone layer.
The exploitation of natural resources and the consequences As the pressure to conserve agricultural land and green field sites has grown it has become increasingly important to reclaim land that has been damaged by past industrial usage, e.g. areas of mining subsidence, tailings dams and lagoons.
Natural resources are those resources that are in existence without humans actions and they can either be renewable or non renewable. And when it gets down to the discussion of natural resource depletion, it a terminology used in reference to water usage, farming, fossil fuel consumption, fishing, and mining.
The exploitation of natural resources is an essential condition of human existence, throughout the history. of mankind; humans have exploited natural resources to produce the materials they needed to sustain growing human populations. Natural resources utilization, mining and processing have caused different types of environmental damages.
However, the exploitation can have many negative impacts on the immediate environment of the exploitation sites. In this study performed on some mining areas of the Moroccan Anti Atlas, four prin cipal negative effects were detected effect on the physiognomy, on safety, on

7 Effects of Mining and Processing of Mineral Resources on Environment 1. Pollution Mining operations often pollute the atmosphere, surface waters and ground water. 2. Destruction of Land Mining activity can cause a considerable loss of land because 3. Subsidence The presence of old, deep
Environmental effect of mineral exploitation in Nigeria. Thus, in general, a greater damage is witnessed in the localities where artisan workers do only manual winning of mineral . For an instant, large scale mining of tin and associated minerals in Jos Plateau has resulted in high degree of degradation of arable land, vegetation and landscape, as well as other environmental problems.
The consequences of this over exploitation of mineral wealth have to be serious, drastic and enormously damaging to the entire biosphere. These can be summed up as follows 1. Rapid Depletion of High Grade Mineral Deposits Exploitation of mineral wealth at a rapid rate shall naturally deplete our good quality deposits.
Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion , sinkholes , loss of biodiversity , or the contamination of soil , groundwater , and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes.
Environmental degradation through aspects such as over exploitation of natural resources, pollution, and deforestation can contributes to the scarcity of resources particularly arable land, water, genetic resources, medicinal plants, and food crops.
exploration and exploitation causes alterations to the environment. Which significantly have negative effects; some of the effects that come with petroleum development can be reduced or prevented basically by taking some steps in terms of prevention. Monitoring is also essential, but is
Mineral exploitation contributes significantly to economic growth and development in most world economies. In Africa, Ghana is the second largest gold producer, contributing to about 5.7% of the countrys GDP. The mining sector in Ghana consists of both small scale and large scale mining, each of which has varying environmental impacts. This paper provides an exposition on the environmental
