The negative impacts of mining are both direct and indirect. Direct effects occur within the immediate con-fines of the mining enterprise (Duran´ et al. 2013). In-direct effects are a consequence of external infrastruc-ture, pollution, synergistic developments, and popula-tion migration. In terms of direct negative impacts on


As with all mining activities, the extraction and bene- ficiation of phosphate rock and potash to produce mineral fertilizer raw material has the potential to cause environmental impacts. These impacts can take the form of changes to the landscape, water contami- nation, excessive water consumption and air pollution.


The phosphate mining carried out partly by Nauru, but mostly by Australian and British companies, had rendered most of the island both uninhabitable and infertile (about 80% of the surface of the island) by the 1960s, leaving everything but the coastal strip uninhabitable (Klein 2014). With a rise in sea levels due to global temperature rise ...

and its effects on public health, agriculture and the environment. In addition, the legacy of mining has left thousands of sites in Africa contaminated by mining and associated mine dumps such as tailings and slag material. On the other hand, the number of studies focused on the impacts of mining and mineral processing


During the xxth Century, phosphate mining brought the people of Nauru considerable wealth, yet caused the destruction of 80% of the island (Gowdy and McDaniel, 1999; Connell, 2006). Despite the physical devastation of Nauru on a scale similar to that of Banaba, the people of Nauru continued to live in their home island.


At first, he tried to use the bones combined with sulfuric acid to be given to plants. The results show that there is a positive effect on plants. However, the availability of bone as a raw material is limited and expensive. In the end, he used the mineral calcium phosphate (Ca3(PO4)2) / rock phosphate because of its abundance and cheapness.

Nauru is most famous as a producer and exporter of phosphate. In 1899, an administrator from the Pacific Islands Company suspected a substance found on the island was phosphate. After testing, his suspicion was confirmed, and the company began to negotiate mining rights of the resources on Nauru, and by 1906 an agreement was reached.


Phosphate Mining in Nauru (cont') • Mining re-commenced on a smaller scale in 2006; • Mining of primary phosphate is expected to be completed in 2014; • Mining of secondary phosphate will take 20-30 years. • Phosphate was/is Nauru's main export revenue earner. • Nauru has sponsored NORI to conduct seabed exploration in the Area.


The amount of phosphate solubilized by Ps-5 was found to be significantly correlated (P ≤ 0.001) with its synthesis of both lactic acid (r = 0.99) and tartaric acid (r = 0.95)s. For Ss-2, a strong positive correlation (P ≤ 0.001) was found between phosphate solubilization and its production of lactic acid (r = 0.97).

Environmental Impact Not only does mining impact the country economically, but it also is extremely damaging to the soil as the mining ravages the landscape, preventing agriculture to take place. Also mining on the interior of the island increases the temperature on Nauru which leads to less clouds forming on the island, leading to drought.

The need to improve phosphorus use efficiency.

The effects of stabilized ammonium fertilization combined with the PGPM inoculant Bacillus amyloliquefaciens FZB42 on the acquisition of rock phosphate in maize were examined on two soils (moderately acidic-pH 5·6 and alkaline-pH 7·8). On the two contrasting soils, FZB42 improved the P status and promoted plant growth by different mechanisms.

Effects on plants. Mining can also have severe adverse effects on plants. Plants usually require a certain pH-level to grow. This pH-level is often altered through mining activities. Thus, many plants will no longer grow efficiently and will lose their fertility which may lead to the local extinction of some plant species.


Phosphate-scarce regions experience most of the increase in phosphate requirement. Global supply of phosphate will fall below global requirement in 2040. Climate impact from mining and processing phosphate will double between 2000 and 2050. Waste management is becoming a major challenge in the phosphate supply chain.


Mining disrupts the cycle by unnaturally removing and displacing reserves of phosphorus rich rock. In most phosphorus mining operations, phosphorus is found as phosphate, this phosphate is attached to other elements like calcium which must be separated from the phosphate. after it is refined the phosphate is sent to other companies to be used ...

The results show that under normal conditions, the addition of potassium phosphate has no significant effect on the mechanical properties; the highest measured tensile strengths were around 350 MPa. However, at temperatures of 600 °C and 800 °C the addition of potassium phosphate had a positive effect, with the tensile strength of the ...


This article outlines the environmental disaster that was phosphate mining on Banaba – or Ocean Island, as it was known to outsiders. The article tracks the tactics used by what became the BPC (British Phosphate Commissioners) in extracting phosphate from the island, resulting in the removal of 90 per cent of its soil and simultaneously alienating Banabans from their land, …


Positive flotation is only applicable when the floatability of gangue minerals and collophane is quite different. The reverse flotation process has a better separation effect on sedimentary calcium magnesia phosphate rock. The positive-reverse flotation is mainly suitable for the mixed collophane ore with high silicate content.


(1) Could the mining of phosphate ore materially influence global ocean anoxia? The USGS estimates worldwide known reserves of phosphate rock, which generally has a P content of order 20%, as 69 Pg, suggesting a content of about 4.5 × 10 14 mol P. This is about 15% of the present ocean inventory.


Uranium mining facilities produce tailings that generally are disposed of in near surface impoundments close to the mine. These tailings pose serious environmental and health risks in the form of Randon emission, windblown dust dispersal and leaching of contaminants including heavy metals and arsenic into the water.

Phosphorus fertilizers are manufactured from rock phosphate (Figure 2.2 ), but rock phosphate itself seldom is used directly as a fertilizer because of its low availability of phosphorus and transport cost. Instead, finely ground rock phosphate is treated with sulfuric acid to yield monocalcium phosphate monohydrate and is known as superphosphate.


Mining involves the extraction of valuable minerals from the earth's surface. Mining can either by surface mining or sub-surface (underground) mining. Mining is not only beneficial to the surrounding community and public in general, but it can also pose a lot of risks to the surrounding community. Let's look at the pros and cons of […]
