Assessing the Ecological Effects of Mining in West Africa

Jun 01, 2017· Nigeria’s abundant solid minerals constitute some of the largest known deposits in recent years under different categories. With the activities in the sector characterized by production and a growing environmental decline often overlooked. This research uses a mix scale approach of descriptive statistics and GIS methodology in analyzing the ecological impacts of mining in Nigeria.

Environmental Issues and the Prospects of Mining in Nigeria

With that came widespread ecological impacts at the expense of adjacent communities. Seeing the recurrent hazards from thousands of abandoned mines across the country, especially in Jos Plateau, as stated by (Edun, 2013), there are other risks in the sector through inland sand mining and the effects of artisanal mining.
