Sand and gravel mining commonly occurs in large open pits. Typically, sand and gravel are relatively dry and removed with bulldozers, front-end loaders, and other conventional construction equipment. However, mining may occur in areas with a high water table. In this case, sands and gravels are removed by a mining method known as dredging.

Environmental Risks of Mining

Mining is an inherently invasive process that can cause damage to a landscape in an area much larger than the mining site itself. The effects of this damage can continue years after a mine has shut down, including the addition to greenhouse gasses, death of flora and fauna, and erosion of land and habitat.
