Opencast Mining

Mining and opencast mining in particular affect all components of ecosystems (Bradshaw, 1997).During opencast mining, material overlying the mined minerals, called overburden, is excavated and deposited in a heap. This heap can be located either inside the mine pit (an internal heap) or outside (an external heap).
