Mining is a global industry that underpins industrial development in many regions. It is a key sector not only because it is the source of essential raw materials, but also because it potentially leads to economic and social development, often in remote and poorly developed areas, due to its importance in national accounts, level of employment and influence of international markets, etc. Mining activities can also cause severe environmental degradation because of its location (almost all conceivable places, often with insufficient infrastructure), size and timescale. Potential negative impacts of mining operations include: * Energy and water consumption * Air, water and land pollution * Landscape alteration * Soil erosion * Destruction of river banks * Health & safety nuisance
