Soil Degradation Due To Coal Mining In India

Degradation of Soil Quality Parameters Due to Coal Mining

Coal mining for an area is an economic activity but may lead to degradation of soil quality. Open-cast coal mining operations involved displacement of a large amount of overburden/rock mass materials to excavate the coal for many purposes. In mining areas, the soils are affected by various coal mining operations i.e. blasting, drilling, storage of overburden dump materials, clearing of land

Soil Degradation in India: Challenges and Potential Solutions

Soil Degradation in India: Challenges and Potential Solutions mining are water scarcity due to lowering of water table, soil contamination, part or total loss of flora and fauna, air and water pollution and acid mine drainage. Overburden removal from mine area results in significant loss of vegetation and rich topsoil [25]. Overburden removal is normally done by blasting or using

SOIL QUALITY STANDARDS (SQS) FOR BIORECLAMATION

In India 18,289 hectares of land is under various type of land degradation due to coal mining in which 1100 ha is by overburden dump. With the increase demand of coal and its opencast mining degrade 1400 ha of fertile land every year. This deterioration in the fertility is due to loss of soil through water erosion, contamination through leaching of heavy metals and siltation with runoff. The

The huge amounts of mining waste materials from coal mining operations destroy soil fertility of agricultural land in their vicinity [6]. Due to this fact lot of research work has been carried out on the different aspects of coal mining in the world [7-11]. Thus, the work has been carried out in the Raniganj coal field

water, pollution of air, water and soil and degradation of agricultural lands are some of the conspicuous environmental implications of coal mining (Das Gupta and Tiwari, 2000; Swer and Singh, 2004). Besides, a vast area has become physically disfigured due to haphazard dumping of overburden, caving in of the ground and subsidence of land.

Soil Degradation Causes, Effects, Preventive Methods

6/5/2020· Soil degradation means the decline in soil quality which comes about due to aspects, for example, improper land use, agriculture, and pasture, urban and industrial purposes. It mainly involves the decline of the soil’s physical, biological, and chemical state. Degraded soils have a health status such, that they do not provide the normal goods and services of the soil in its ecosystem. This

Allocating forest land in Chhattisgarh for coal mining is

The report notes that both these types of land degradation happen due to “felling of trees and industrial establishments which do not have any waste management.” It is concerning that the data after 1994 is not available for land degradation, especially in light of the fact that the forest land diversion for mining and other non-forest purpose has rapidly picked up pace since then.

Ecological Restoration of Coal Mine Degraded Lands

1/1/2019· Currently, major coal producing countries like China rely on underground mining, although in India more than 93% of coal has been produced through surface mining methods due to the occurrence of coal at shallow depths. Surface mining is a comparatively low-cost operation, however, it can trigger several environmental problems, like land degradation, deforestation, and loss of regional

How to Control Pollution in Mining Industry?

In India, about 0.75% of the total land surface of 304 million hectares is under mining lease. 175 million hectares of land has been degraded to various degrees. Mining activities are to involve 1200 hectares of forest area per year at production level of 400 million tonnes of minerals and the forest area of the country has been reduced from 23% of the entire land to 10.63%.
