I’d say uranium mining stands out in terms of damage. Uranium gets dug up
in the form of rocks, the rocks get crushed, several toxic chemicals are added to help remove
the uranium, but some of the uranium still ends up going into ground water or staying in left over dust known as mine tailings. It’s estimated that Canada has 200 million tons of radioactive
sand as a result of uranium mining. The problem is this can cause cancer, the radiation lasts
at least 80,000 years, and the sands can be carried off in the wind, travel as much as 1000 miles in a few days, and get inhaled or settle on agricultural sites.
