If we mine it and you drill it. We can frack it together!

There are two types of minning.

Surface: Surface mining is when the rock and soil that are covering mineral deposits are dug up. The resources are restoring vegetation, and soil stability.

Subsurface: Subsurface mining is the process of extracting minerals and ores from underground. The resources are diamonds and most metal ores.

Surface: open-pit mining is a technique of extracting rock or minerals by removal from an open-pit or borrow. Environmental effects are that it disturbs the Earth's surface.

Subsurface: adit mining is a horizontal tunnel that can be entered, drained of water, and ventilated. Environmental effects are toxic water ends up in groundwater.

Land drilling is drilling deep holes under the Earth's surface in order to extract natural resources. Ocean drilling is drilling underneath the sea bed.


Fracking is a technique to recover gas and oil from shale rock. It's done by drilling down into the Earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Environmental effects are containment of groundwater, air pollution impacts, water disposal, and blowouts due to gas explosions
