Sample Text:
It occurs naturally in some conditions, however, it is a process that is aggravated due to both surface and underground mining, mainly for coal – as well as other minerals and ores. The drainage severely impacts river/ stream ecosystems through chemical precipitation – commonly ferric ions (Fe3+), increasing the acidity, oxygen depletion and the release of heavy metals or semi-metals, such as Lead, Zinc and Copper. Active mines are a minor concern compared to inactive ones. Active mines may be deep below the water table, however, they pump out the water away from the mine or they lower the water table, keeping the water pollution to a minimum. When mining ceases, so does the outflow pump of water, causing the mine to flood and exposing s...
