Balkans: hazardous industrial sites, water pollution and mining hot spots

Year: 2007
From collection: Balkan Vital Graphics
Author: UNEP/DEWA/GRID-Europe
Description:
The environmental legacy associated with extraction industries is all too familiar. Badly operated or abandoned mining sites have already caused severe pollution, some with impacts spilling across national boundaries: heavy metal spills from Baia Borsa tailings in Romania; the cyanide spill from Baia Mare in Romania; heavy metal spills from Sasa tailings in Macedonia; and various releases at Majdanpek and Veliki Majdan in Serbia, and Mojkovac in Montenegro.
