What kind of pollution does mining cause?



  1. 0 Votes

    mining can cause several types of pollution. One type is acid draining from coal mines, where rainwater seeps through the cracks in sulfur laden coal and turns into sulfuric acid that drains into streams. Other types of pollution from open pit mines is when the rain water fills the mine, it dissolves much of the heavy metals that were being mined, and some can be quite toxic.
