On Mining And Processing Arsenic

Arsenic in Waste from Coal Mining, Processing, and Storage Mining operations in the United States generally must meet water-quality stan-dards for discharge of mine water. In some abandoned mines or undisturbed pyrite-rich strata, however, decomposition of pyrite in coal and rock can lead to dispersal of arsenic to the environment. For example, in

    Arsenic is present in the mining environment not only in the rock minerals, but also as water-soluble compounds and in gaseous form. Mining is focused on the recovery of ele-ments and materials from mineral deposits, but during the process, side effects like the release of contaminants can occur.

    Arsenic occurs in pure form only in small deposits. It occurs in many minerals, and usually is obtained as a by-product from the mining, processing and refining of other minerals. Common arsenic-bearing minerals include arsenopyrite, conichalcite, enargite, lollingite (iron arsenide), olivenite and orpiment

    Arsenic mine tailings and health - Better Health Channel

    Arsenic is a substance found in the environment. It occurs naturally in crushed rock. It is often found near gold deposits and is extracted as part of gold and other mining activities. The waste left over after mining processes is called mine tailings. Mine tailings often look like fine clay or sand and commonly contain raised levels of arsenic

This kind of pollution occurs when chemical agents (such as cyanide or sulphuric acid used by mining companies to separate the target mineral from the ore) spill, leak, or leach from the mine site into nearby water bodies. These chemicals can be highly toxic to humans and wildlife. 4
