Operations and waste products associated with metal extraction and processing are the principal causes of environmental concerns about metal mining. As the amount of waste rock in open pit mines is commonly two to three times the amount of ore produced, tremendous volumes of waste rock are removed from the pits. The impact of mining and smelting of metal ores on environmental quality is described. Mines produce large amounts of waste because the ore is only a small fraction of the total volume of the mined material. In the metal industry, production of Cu, Pb, and Zn causes the greatest degradation of the environment. Copper.

In the case of a gold mine, the ground-up ore is mixed with water to make a slurry that is pumped to flotation cells. Flotation These are flotation cells - they are the machines that separate valuable minerals from other minerals that are in the ore. 1 Oct Contemporary metal mining is dominated by iron ore, copper and gold, with 2 billion tons of iron ore, nearly 20 million tons of copper and 2, tons of gold produced every year. Tens to Moreover, there are potential environmental consequences related to their extraction, processing, use and disposal.
