Environmental Risks of Mining

Environmental hazards are present during every step of the open-pit mining process. Hardrock mining exposes rock that has lain unexposed for geological eras. When crushed, these rocks expose radioactive elements, asbestos-like minerals, and metallic dust. During separation, residual rock slurries, which are mixtures of pulverized rock and

Industrial Sand Mining Strategic Analysis

Silica sand or silicon dioxide (SiO2), also referred to as quartz, has been mined for thousands of years and has many uses, from paving roads to filtering drinking water. Sand used in the petroleum industry has been produced in Wisconsin for over 40 years. In recent years, however, the demand for industrial sand has increased exponentially.
