Mining Ecology


The scope of the discussion embraces main definitions of a constituent of the geoecology—environmental mineralogy. The main research areas, objectives and subjects of the environmental mineralogy are specified. It is highlighted that yet no regulating documents are available for mineralogical analyses during environmental appraisal of mineral mining objects.
