heavy metal freshwater contamination by iron ore mining

Impact of Mining on Environment

Mining affects fresh water through heavy use of water in processing ore, and through water pollution from discharged mine effluent and seepage from tailings and waste rock impoundments. Increasingly, human activities such as mining threaten the water sources on which we all depend. Water has been called "Mining's most common need".

Metals Lab Factory Idle

Aug 10, 2021The most common metal pollution in freshwater comes from mining companies. They usually use an acid mine drainage system to release heavy metals from ores, because metals are very soluble in an acid solution. After the drainage process, they disperse the acid solution in the groundwater, containing high levels of metals. See also acids alkalis.

In particular, fish is one of the products most affected by heavy metal contamination, because heavy metals are bioaccumulative in the food chain. When heavy metals accumulate in waters, fish ingest them through their diet and accumulate them over the course of their lives. The heavy metals then reach the consumer when that fish is consumed.
