Impact of silica mining on environment

limestone, pyrophyllite, silica sand, sulphur etc. Silica sand refers to sand having the composition and grain-size distribution required for industrial applications. Quartz or silicon dioxide (SiO2) is one of the most common minerals found on the Earth’s surface and is found in rocks like granite, gneiss, and sandstone.

Gold Mine Tailings: A Potential Source of Silica Sand for

Mining of minerals such as gold, copper, and platinum has been one of several activities sustaining the economy of South Africa. However, the mining sector has contributed significantly to environmental contamination through the improper disposal of mine tailings which covers vast areas of land. Therefore, this study utilised a vitrification process to manufacture glass from gold mine tailings.

Production and plant Lochaline Quartz Sand

The mine in Lochaline is the only underground sand mine in Europe. The huge deposit of pure white sandstone is extracted by using a room and pillar method. The sandstone is drilled, blasted, loaded into dump trucks and taken to the surface plant, where it is crushed, washed, screened, scrubbed and spiralized to remove impurities.
