    Mining in general is harmful to the environment, but the specific harm depends upon the specific type of mining. Mountaintop removal mining, for instance, releases massive amounts of buried dust and grit into the environment, which can contaminate groundwater. Other types of mining can lead to soil erosion, or permenantly damage wildlife habitats.
