How can metal mining impact the environment?

Underground mining generally results in relatively small waste rock disposal areas ranging from a few acres in size to tens of acres (0.1 km2). These areas are typically located near the openings of the underground workings. Open pit mining disturbs larger areas than underground mining, and thus has larger visual and physical impacts.

Home Pitwatch Water and the Berkeley Pit

Open pit mining creates a series of benches that are dug into the ground to extract all of the rock (ore containing or not) out of an area. Over time, this creates a large void or an open pit mine. In the case of the Berkeley Pit, the benches were dug straight into both bedrock (hard rock) and alluvium (sandy gravel near the earth's surface and below the soil layer).
