Some gold can be found by panning in rivers; heavy gold will remain in the pan, whereas lighter rocks and minerals float out. This small scale form of gold mining has little effect on the body of water, but the large scale practice of mining gold from ore can have tremendous negative effects on water quality.
Journal of Sustainable Mining is dedicated to the key problems of contemporary mining, for which activities related to sustainable development are a great and important challenge. The mission of this journal is to promote and spread knowledge not only concerning the idea of sustainable development in

Environmental impacts from mining operations are significant and quite often severe, especially in developing nations which lack adequate management of the sector. In Zambia, impacts from mining results from both historical and ongoing mining operations, and the majority of them is located in the Copperbelt district.

Gold Mining and its Environmental Impacts ABSTRACT This paper examines the economical, agricultural, and environmental effects of the California Gold Rush of 1848 and the following years. After gold ore is formed through hydrothermal deposition, it is near enough to the Earths surface, that it can be mined for its monetary and aesthetic value.
