Mining & Extraction

Mining and extraction.This page displays a collection of online videos about mining and extraction with a focus on how mining practices can be much less damaging to the natural environment. Video topics include mine planning and development, socially responsible and green mineral exploration and extraction, mining management and operations, site closure and reclamation, tailings and mine waste containment, and clean up of abandoned mines.

Our society uses many raw materials that are extracted from the earth, such as iron, coal, uranium, diamonds, and gold. Mining often has a significant impact on the surrounding living natural environment and can adversely impact human health as well. Measures can be taken to mitigate these impacts and also to protect mine workers. Once mines are closed, it is vital to both monitor the sites and restore the surrounding lands and waters.
