In its continuing efforts of collecting information on the mining and mineral processing industry, EPA obtain detailed information to develop approximately 62 summaries illustrating recent mining and mineral processing damage cases in a variety of mineral commodity sectors and states. While these cases should not be viewed as the results of an exhaustive survey or as a statistically representative body of knowledge, EPA does believe they demonstrate that releases of constituents to the environment with consequent environmental damages have been and are occurring from many different types of mineral production sites and activities across the U.S.
