Can mining be done without damaging the surrounding land?

    No. The act of mining requires that soil and anything living on or in it be displaced, which will disrupt the local ecosystem if not downright killing flora or fauna.

    Underground mining can have a small footprint in terms of the mine itself. It is the supporting infrastructure, and the disposition of the material brought out, that impacts the surrounding land. That damage can actually be worse than the damage caused by a visible scar such as an open pit mine.
