Costs and effects of environmental protection controls regulating U.S. phosphate rock mining. [Washington, D.C.]: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, (OCoLC) Online version: Balazik, Ronald F. Costs and effects of environmental protection controls regulating U.S. phosphate rock mining.

This Bureau of Mines study identifies and examines the costs of federal, state, and local environmental protection controls on domestic phosphate rock mining. The costs include the expenditures needed to comply with government regulations and the effects that these expenditures and regulations.

The mining industry has taken the reins on environmental regulations. An EA merely determines if there is a potential for significant environmental effects. This EA was particularly lax, as.

about phosphate rock basics, mining and beneficiation, the association of toxic metals and radioactive elements in the phosphate rocks and the transfer pathways of these hazardous elements from the phosphate rocks to the environment.

The discussion part was mainly concerned on the environmental impact of phosphate mining and processingFile Size: KB. Some important federal laws authorizing and guiding environmental regulation of mining in the United States are discussed below. These laws outline the responsibilities of several federal agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in regulating mining operations.

Other acts, such as the Safe Drinking Water Act, can be relevant. As more mines open in countries with varying levels of environmental protection, it is increasingly vital that safeguards established by the Strategic Minerals Association (SMA) are in place before operations proceed (see the international regulation page).

Environmental Damages of Mining. Open pit mining. This paper presents the environmental impacts caused by surface mining and the ecological rehabilitation of Haikou phosphate deposits, Kunming, China. Surface mining entails the removal of the overburden to expose bare rock surfaces, not only causing destruction of pre-existing vegetation, but also occupying large areas of land for dumping the spoil.

(2) Mining Waste Release and Environmental Effects Summaries, Draft, MarchU.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This series of documents identifies damage from mining and mineral processing wastes at mining sites in 9 states.2 These cases include some damages from mineral processing.

The objective of this project is to determine long-term health and ecological risk reductions of soil Pb by in situ phosphate treatment and evaluate environmental safety of the phosphate-based treatments using three field sites (urban soil, mill waste, and mine waste) that were treated with phosphoric acid or phosphate-enrich biosolids during.

Phosphate rock (PR) is an important mineral resource with numerous uses and applications in agriculture and the environment. PR is used in the manufacture of detergents, animal feed, and phosphate (PO 4 3–) ng or runoff losses from PR products like PO 4 3– fertilizers, animal feeds, and detergents could cause eutrophication of surface waters enriched in PO 4 3– by.

Notwithstanding early efforts at environmental protection and control, the concept of environmentally oriented laws and regulations as a separate and distinct body of law is a 20th-century development (Lazarus, ).The recognition that the environment is (collectively) a fragile organism that is in need of legal protection did not occur until the s (Chapter 1).

Certain minerals directly cause environmental hazards ranging from air and water pollution to contamination within residential communities. Mineral contamination effects include causing disease in humans and wildlife, befouling wilderness and streams, and contributing to global warming.

Although some mineral. Phosphate mining also releases some of the naturally radioactive material found deep in Florida's soils.

That's a risk. When reclamation doesn't work or when revegetation takes a long time, plant and animal communities can be lost or greatly reduced. Sometimes, the effects of phosphate mining aren't detectable — and that is the scariest risk. Command-and-control regulation. The benefits and costs of US environmental laws.

Hardrock mining is a large-scale industrial activity that takes place in the natural environment, potentially disturbing large amounts of material and land area. Hardrock mining generates large volumes of mining waste because of the high waste-to-product ratios associated with producing most ores.

Law, New York (December 2,PM EST) -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Friday proposed a rule that would require owners and operators of hardrock mining facilities to. The purpose of these state regulations is to “control possible adverse effects of nonferrous metallic mineral mining, to preserve natural resources, and to encourage planning of future land utilization, while at the same time promoting orderly development of nonferrous metallic mineral mining, encouragement of good mining practices, and.

The U.S. Department of Energy and the National Mining Association are working in partnership to implement the Mining Industry of the Future strategy. Yet the Environmental Protection Agency has reported that 40 percent of watershed headwaters in the western United States have been contaminated by mining operations.

Many of these are tiny sites. Mining poses significant environmental challenges. It generates large volumes of, for instance, waste rock, tailings, acid mine drainage, airborne dust and other contaminants, which are deposited on land and in the air and water (Widerlund et al., ).

For these reasons mining is the focus of increasing-ly stringent environmental regulations. Water quality effects associated with the phosphate industry and areas of phosphate mineralization has been mentioned in reports by the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration (Shearer et al., ), Battelle Memorial Institute (), Datagraphics, Inc.

(), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (; Guimond and Windham, ), and. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule Friday aimed at ensure that hard-rock mining companies can pay the costs to clean up their mines. Innine companies operated seventeen phosphate rock mines in the U.S.

Florida is the main source of phosphate rock in the U.S. It supplies 25 percent of the world and 75 percent of the U.S. demand for phosphate.2 Other large producing states are North Carolina, Utah, and Idaho.

Agencies involved in the approval of new mining projects include the U.S. Forest Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management and the Army Corps of Engineers.

There are now more than 30 laws governing the environmental impact of mining, including the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires that mining. Missing Science, Diverse Opinions. The EPA last revisited drinking water standards for radionuclides in2 when it established a maximum contaminant level (MCL) for uranium and reaffirmed requirements established in 3 for radium and combined, for gross alpha particle reactivity, and for beta particle/gamma ray radioactivity.
