Alternative Titles mineral dressing, ore dressing Mineral processing , art of treating crude ores and mineral products in order to separate the valuable minerals from the waste rock, or gangue. It is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy .
One of the companies reported on its website that the environmental laws in Zimbabwe are lax, adding that it is cheaper to pollute and pay fines than to prevent pollution. Due to the involvement of state security agents and senior politicians in diamond mining, companies that are polluting appear to be operating above the law.
and Zimbabwe Effluent Standards. The results of this study have shown large scale impacts that include siltation, chemical pollution and also heavy metal pollution. All these arise as by products of the mining processes. Turbidity and total solids exceeded the environmental limits. Water of high turbidity (hazey,
Similarly, figures from the Zimbabwe Investment Authority for 2013 also reveal an upward trend of the mining sector attracting 207 million out of the 660 million worth of investment with the remainder 460.30 million falling into other 5 sectors of the economy.
Mining is an inherently invasive process that can cause damage to a landscape in an area much larger than the mining site itself. The effects of this damage can continue years after a mine has shut down, including the addition to greenhouse gasses, death of flora and fauna, and erosion of land and habitat.

An EIA should predict environmental impacts at an early stage in project planning and design, find ways and means to reduce adverse impacts, shape projects to suit the local environment and present the predictions and options to decision makers. The EIA policy is administered by the Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Climatic Change.
Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion , sinkholes , loss of biodiversity , or the contamination of soil , groundwater , and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes.

This is fortunate,
Effects of Gold Mining on the Environment. Although its price fluctuates, gold regularly sells for more than $1,000 per ounce. Gold nuggets are popular among collectors but are rare; most gold is found as small particles buried in gold ore. Mining just an ounce of gold from ore can result in 20 tons of solid waste and significant mercury and cyanide contamination, according to Earthworks.
Table 2 Zimbabwe Chrome Ore Production In the last 30 years the chrome sector has experienced highs and lows in production. The highest production levels were recorded in 1997, 2001 and 2002 when the sector produced over 750 000 tonnes per year. The lowest figures were recorded in 2009 when the country produced less than 200 000 tonnes.
