The Life of Mining Drilling Frackin
By: Tavon Batts
Resources: ores, precious stones, building stones, and solid fuels are removed during Surface mining.
Ex: Strip mining, Open-Pit mining, Mountaintop removal, and Dredging
Open-Pit Mining: mining for rocks or minerals inside of a pit.
Effect on Environment: Exploding land leaving scars on the environment. Releasing radioactive element and dust into the air. And taking more rocks/minerals than needed.
Land drilling can. Ocean drilling
However More money has went to land drilling in the past because it was more efficient and bring in a good amount of oil. But now that there are more land drilling mines it has expanded ocean drilling.
Effects on Environment: The environment is affected because not only are we destroying land above the sea and below it, but we are drilling up almost all of the oil and we are about to run out.
