Mine it, Drill it, Frack it!
Two types of mining
the other type of mining is Sub Surface mining. It is similar to surface but it extract the minerals AND ores but from the underground.
the ways are drilling it, mining it. fracking it.
Drilling it. (examples of)
the exploration diamond drilling, gas and oil drilling. it just withdraws it from the earth. the process of the gas and oil drilling leaves behind radical impacts to the landscape. in negative ways it brings toxic and chemicals and dust pollute the air and water and more. the good is that it gives us gas and oil and many other things out of earth.
Frack it/ what is fracking?
there has been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling. the waste fluids is left open air pits to evaporate, releasing harmful compounds into the atmosphere, creating contaminated air, and acid rain.
Land Drilling vs. Ocean Drilling
land drilling- drilling with rings that are moved in by ground transportation and the drilling site is not over water.
both of the history of land and ocean drilling offshore oil and natural gas industry began in the pacific ocean and more than 100 years ago. as recently as 1947.
