Mitigation methods of environmental impacts of mining activities in Saudi Arabia

Abstract : The challenge for industries are to find, extract and process mineral resources with the least possible environmental disruption. To be able to meet this challenge, they adopt an expanded range of protective measures, including: sensitive treatment of the land during exploration; environmental and aesthetic management of land under development; environmentally sustainable production procedures during the mining and metallurgical processes; and decommissioning and reclamation practices aimed at restoring the land.
