Acid mine drainage is by far the most common and problematic mining water pollution issue.Heavy metal contamination leachate when arsenic, cobalt, copper, cadmium, lead, silver and zinc metals are exposed to water, heavy metal contamination occurs.When the metals leach from the rock, they also run into the nearby water sources and pollute.
The mining companies.The main source of so2 pollution from the zambian mines is from the roasting and rening of copper bearing sul-phide ores, chalcopyrite cufes2simukanga, 1999.The rst stage in most processes is roasting or smelting the ore in air which oxidizes some of the copper and produces so2.The increase in so2 emissions has al-.
The mufulira smelter currently processes over 400,000 tonnes of copper concentrates per annum, most of which is sourced from mcms mines i.Mufulira and nkana mines.Concentrate and other copper bearing feed materials e.Copper oxides are also obtained from surrounding operations in zambia and the democratic republic of the congo drc.

According to data from the utah division of air quality, rtk is by far the largest single source of air pollution along the wasatch front, emitting 10 times more pollution overall than the next largest industrial source, the chevron refinery.Inversions or no inversions, the raw data simply show that rtk is responsible for nearly one-third of.
Important works concerned with air pollution.4 the visible effects of air pollution and the damage it caused to health and materials were all recognized.The ascendance of atomism allowed speculation about the mode of action of air pollutants, while interest in the re-lationship between health and weather gave birth to the science of meteorology.
Historically air quality management on mines has been hindered by the.Emission standards are typically applied only to point source industrial emissions, and not to fugitive sources such as open pit mining or tailings dams,.208 air pollution xiv.Regularly maintained source inventories, dispersion modelling and air quality monitoring.
Air pollution from the copper mines has produced visible impacts on human lives and the physical environment on the copperbelt.In terms of regulatory framework, air pollution in zambia is regulated by zema through a statutory instrument no.141, called the air pollution.
A number of serious environmental impacts are directly linked to operating copper mines, and the most important ones are described here.Air pollution in zambia, the mining industry mostly the copper smelters contributes to over 98 of the countrys so 2 emissions.In the early 2000s, the total so 2 emission was 346 700 tonyear.
The mines, and only beyond a minimum distance of more than 1800 m the health impact was considered to be negligible.Conclusion the findings indicate that air pollution emissions related to industrial gold or copper mines mainly occurring in rural chilean communities might increase the risk of respiratory diseases in children.
