This paper with the titleWaste Management in Mining Industry mainly deals with the large amount of waste generated by the mining industry in the process of extraction of minerals which is a great threat to the environment leading to air pollution soil pollution and many other hazardous effects to the environment as well as human lives . This paper broadly discusses about the different type of mine waste generated during the entire mining process right from the mineral extracting to the beneficiation process which provides a complete view of the mine waste generated by the different mining methods like surface mining, underground mining etc used in the extraction process of minerals from the earth's crust. It also gives the details about the amount of waste materials generated in extracting different minerals like gold, diamond etc., especially in extracting radioactive mineral like uranium. It also discusses about tailings. The result material created by the mineral beneficiation or milling process and various method of disposing this tailings without effecting the environment. This paper also reviews about the impacts of this mine waste on the environment and how it is a threat to the human lives. It also discusses the most efficient methods to deal with this global problem faced by people all over the world as it is the concern of our extinction in this beautiful earth.
