Sand and gravel mining refers to the actual process of removal of sand or gravel from a place of occurrence. The increase in demand for sand and gravel for construction purposes has placed immense pressure on the environment where these resources occur. Miners employ different methods of extraction along river channels and their flood plains.
The extraction of sand and gravel around and within the river makes the banks of the river weaker and gradually collapses. This does not only leads to filling of the river channel with sediments but gives room for the water in the river to flow out resulting in erosion which washes away the soil. 4. Deforestation.
Jun 13, 2014 Different mining methods mechanical or manual are adopted for the extraction of sand from these sources under dry above water table andor wet below water table conditions. This chapter describes briefly the different sources, methods and hydrogeological bearings of sand and gravel extraction processes in river ecosystems.
The present review paper deals with the environmental effects of indiscriminate River Bed Mining from the catchments basin of the river. Illegal mining amp erosion os sand near the active mining area.

the environment, if done carefully and within the limits set by nature. How-ever, if proper precautions are not taken many human activities in karst, includ-ing extraction of carbonate rocks, can result in damage to the environment and associated increases in costs for environ-mental compliance or liability. Purpose This report describes the ...
Large-scale sand extraction from river environment for building constructions is a global phenomenon. Indiscriminate sand mining imposes a series of physical, ecological, and socio-environmental ...
the environmental impacts of sand and gravel in Nzhelele Valley, Limpopo Province, South Africa Mathada and Kori, 2012, where there is an increase in demand for sand and gravel for construction purposes. The extraction of sand and gravel from river, stream terraces, floodplain and channels, conflicted with other
The lack of adequate information on the environmental impacts of sand and gravel extraction is a major challenge to regulatory effort in many developing countries. This study highlights the environmental impacts of sand and gravel extraction from the in-stream and floodplain areas of Nzhelele River Valley, Limpopo Province of South Africa.
river and the different important functions of the river. The extraction of sand and gravel from the river bodies has to be regulated and done with adoption of required environmental safeguards. For making available these resources, a mapping of these resources at the district level,
The Environmental Impacts of Aggregate Extraction. 3. The Environmental Impacts of Aggregate Extraction. With the exception of those who work in the building trades, the closest most of us ever come to virgin aggregate that is, aggregate that comes straight from an aggregate mine and has not been reclaimed from rubble or other debris is ...
Mining Methods. There are four key stages of work involved in mining for minerals. These include 3415, 3416 Prospecting The purpose of this stage is to identify areas that are likely to contain mineral deposits. The work includes geological, geochemical and geophysical surveys e.g. seismic surveying, aerial surveys, including the taking of samples by low-impact mechanical methods.
