Researchers tracked long-term sediment dynamics in Canada’s Quesnel Lake following the 2014 failure of a dam that spilled record-breaking amounts of contaminated mining waste.
A method called flash Joule heating could offer a more sustainable way to source essential components of electronics from coal fly ash.
Researchers identified a gateway that allows metals critical for renewable energy technologies, like copper and gold, to make their way to the surface.
Researchers identified geochemical tracers for lead and investigated Oklahomans’ concerns at the Tar Creek Superfund site.
Large-scale lava experiments are helping scientists imagine how metallic lava would flow across and shape a landscape, either on Earth or on a distant asteroid.
New network analysis suggests that zinc and cadmium sulfides weathered simultaneously in geological history, making cadmium a suitable substitute in photosynthetic pathways when zinc was scarce.
A new study will trace the legacy of uranium mining on commercially available medicinal plants.
A comparative study of urban, semi-urban, and rural sites reveals that the species of atmospheric iron varies depending on location.
Papers are invited for a special collection presenting advances in understanding of the impacts of mining on human, ecosystem, and Earth surface environmental health.
