Environmental issues from coal mining and their

2010-3-1  Environmental issues arise at every stage of the proc- ess. This paper will discuss environmental issues due to coal mining. In fact, environmental problems from coal mining have been studied since coal mining be- came industrialized. Nevertheless, environmental issues from coal mining have become important con- cerns only since the 1970’s.

Environmental issues from coal mining and their

The environmental challenges from coal mining include coal mine accidents, land subsidence, damage to the water environment, mining waste disposal and air pollution. These are either environmental pollution or landscape change. A conceptual framework for solving mine environmental issues is proposed. Clean processes, or remediation measures

COAL MINING AND THE ENVIRONMENT

2016-2-4  The environmental impacts of coal mining in South Africa are reviewed. The primary impacts arise from mining, particularly underground mining, largely because South African coal mines are relatively shallow. Coal washing gives rises to large waste dumps, which may ignite spontaneously and cause air pollution.
