EXECUTIVE SUMMARY ENVIRONMENTAL SURVEY OF IDENTIFIED

Five potential sand resource areas were defined within the study area through a Federal-State cooperative agreement between MMS INTERMAR and the Geological Survey of Alabama (GSA). For the present study, four borrow sites within Sand Resource Areas 1 through 4 were defined to evaluate potential impacts of sand mining for beach replenishment.Geography of Sand and Gravel Mining in the Lower Mekong River,The survey results reveal that the yearly volume of sand and gravel extracted, despite its undervaluation, exceeds the transported volume of sand and gravel in the Mekong sediment load. The results also highlight the extreme importance of this factor in the geomorphologic and ecological changes of the Mekong reaches and the delta.Assessing Environmental Impacts of Inland Sand Mining in,,Sand is a valuable resource for construction and other purposes, however sand mining often result in serious environmental problems such as land degradation, loss of agricultural lands and,

Environmental Effects of Sand and Gravel Mining on Land,

The increase in the demand for sand and gravel for construction and other purposes such as flood control has placed immense pressure on the environment where sand and gravel resources occur. This study was carried out to determine the environmental effects of sand and gravel mining in Luku, North central Nigeria, using field observations and laboratory analysis of soil samples.SAND AND GRAVEL RESOURCES - British Geological Survey,Mining: sand and gravel resources of the lower Rio Minho and Yallahs fan-delta,,the control of sand and gravel mining operations in order to protect local communities,,British Geological Survey. • Assessment of the ecological effects of river mining in the Rio Minho and Yallahs rivers, Jamaica, 2003.Sand? Mine! | Hakai Magazine,A proposal for a sand and gravel quarry south of San Jose was abandoned in 2014 after significant opposition, and the federal Bureau of Land Management terminated two controversial aggregate mining permits held by cement and ready-mix concrete producer Cemex for quarry operations in Santa Clarita north of Los Angeles in 2015.

Although the area disturbed by a single mining operation generally is small, the combined acreage nationwide is substantial. Nearly one million acres were affected by sand and gravel mining in the U.S. in a recent 40-year period.

Aggregate resources: Production and environmental constraints

Aggregates are produced from sand and gravel deposits or from bedrock sources. Production sites are numerous to minimize transport and are more and more in a competing land use position. Urbanization, while creating a market, also sterilizes deposits and pressures producers to relocate further from populated areas.
