The environmental impacts of mining and quarrying are several. While the extractions are underway, the landscape is visibly disfigured and habitat loss can be extensive. The mining operations themselves and the accompanying spoil heaps cause a drastic change in the location with direct destruction of habitat and blocking or burying nearby bodies of water. Mining can often affect local ......

We have carried out an assessment on the environmental effects of limestone quarrying on some com-munities in the Lower Manya Krobo District in the Eastern region of Ghana. Dust emission is one of the major effects of the practice of limestone extraction and as such, dust (PM10) sampling was conducted at the affected communities. Mean dry season results recorded in these communities stand …...

Dust is present in all quarrying and opencast mining operations. While it is often considered to be more of an environmental issue, dust is a potential health risk and it is the nature of the dust that determines the associated risk. For example, larger particles of dust can be an irritant to the eyes and throat, while smaller respirable dust particles (less than 5 microns) can be inhaled ......
