Characteristics of manifestations of environmental pollution in mineral exploitation areas on the territory of Nghệ An Province

Hồ Văn Tú

Nghệ An is one of provinces of North Trung Bộ region having great potential in mineral resources. During recent years, the mining industry on the province is rather strongly developed, with many mineral types such as: white marble, construction stones, cement limestone, tin, gold, etc.. The exploitation of mineral resources not only brings forth great economic income to trades and significant contributions in the provincial budget, but also works to local inhabitants. However, together with economic sources the mineral exploitation has been leaving severe consequences by the pollution of water and atmosphere environments.
