Storyboard Text

  • After a long day of exciting adventures in the mine...
  • We have to do this more often!
  • So, how was your day, kids? Did you enjoy it?
  • That was so fun!
  • Don't these metallic resources harm the environment? I would assume so.
  • Yes, it does! In many ways actually. Come on, I want to show you guys something.
  • The operations and waste products that is used when extracting the metal and processing principal events cause a lot of harm to the environment.
  • Tailings are a toxic mixture of water, rock, particles, and chemicals left over from the milling process. This is what we are looking at.
  • Oh no, how sad...
  • Then this must cause a lot of pollution when the water evaporates and releases poisonous particles in the air!
  • Let's get going, kids. It's dark out.
  • Not properly managing waste rock disposal can lead to concentrations of metals in stream sediments.  These chemicals can be released into the streams which will pollute the water.
  • The tailings are dumped in the nearby tailing pond to evaporate. It is EXTREMELY posionus
  • This is awful.
  • To keep the environment healthy, practices that reduce the environmental impact on mining operations should be developed. Any ideas?
  • I understand, kids. The world needs to do something about this. Go home and have a good night! See you tomorrow!
  • Ms. Shah, all these reasons can also help us sustainably manage metallic minerals.
  • These solutions will let us continue this mining process longer for the future.
  • We can also work on conducting successful mine closure and reclamation activities so the impact would have boundaries.
  • We could measure the reducing water and the energy consumption so we will be able to identify the problems to later then solve them
  • We could also minimize the land disturbance and waste production to prevent soil, water, and air pollution from mines.
