The Mining Process – Waihi Gold

A slurry of ground ore, water and a weak cyanide solution is fed into large steel leach tanks where the gold and silver are dissolved. Following this leaching process the slurry passes through six adsorption tanks containing carbon granules which adsorb the gold and silver. This process removes 93% of the gold and 70% of the silver.

Environmental Impact

Mining companies in some countries are required to follow environmental and rehabilitation codes, ensuring the area mined is returned to CLOSE to its original state (but how can you fill in an open-pit diamond mine or gold mine that is 2.5 miles in depth - that's 10 Empire State Buildings?). Some areas have no regulations at all. That is why The Greener Diamond and MiaDonna feel it is so

Impacts of deep‐sea mining on microbial ecosystem

Predicting and assessing the environmental impacts of mining in the deep sea is fundamentally more challenging than on land because so little of the deep sea has been explored in any detail. In many areas under consideration for mining, we lack any knowledge of how the resident microbial communities contribute to primary production and element cycling in their habitats and how these local
