Mining has been identified as a potential source of future large scale development in the region, especially because of the advanced stage of activity at the Pebble prospect. The goal of this report is to summarize the geologic and environmental characteristics of porphyry copper deposits in general, largely on the basis of literature review.
Feb 01, 2019 The 1946 Act which included environmental protection in the regulation of mining activities still failed to protect the environment from the negative impacts of mining. The cost of a lack of environmental protection in the Act is evident in the Plateau tin mining fields Chindo, 2012. 4.1.2. Environmental implication of coal mining
Aug 01, 2018 The literature review performed in this study aimed at having a representative sample of studies from the literature, describing the most frequent social impacts occurring in the mining sectors.

The natural stone industry generates large amounts of industrial waste every year. Limestone powder produced by the activity of this industry is dumped into landfills, generating an environmental impact that could be reduced by using this waste as a binder in building materials. In the present work, the use of this by-product as an addition for soil improvement of clayey soils has been studied.
