11.19.1 Sand And Gravel Processing

2015-9-10  Sand and gravel typically are mined in a moist or wet condition by open pit excavation or bydredging. Open pit excavation is carried out with power shovels, draglines, front end loaders, andbucket wheel excavators. In rare situations, light charge blasting is done to loosen the deposit. Miningby dredging involves mounting the equipment on boats or barges and removing the sand and gravelfrom the bottom of the body of water by suction or bucket-type dredges. After mining, the materialsare transported to the processing

Environmental Effects of Sand and Gravel Mining on

2020-8-21  Results from field observation showed that one of the physical effects of sand and gravel mining in Luku is the reduction of farmlands and grazing lands. Farming and animal rearing is one of the activities taking place in the area but sand and gravel mining has taken up most of the productive land meant for these activities. This is because for sand and gravel to be extracted, vegetation is destroyed and this vegetation serves as food for their cattle. This then denies both animals and inhabitants in the area their means of livelihood (Figure 2). In East Gonja District in Ghana where agriculture is the predominant economic activity in the area,, reported that gravel mining
