Impact of Iron Ore Mining on Human Health in Keonjhar District of Odisha 1Priyambada Pradhan, 2Dr Sudhakar Patra 1Research Scholar, Ravenshaw University, Cuttack, India 2Professor of Economics, Ravenshaw University, Cuttack, India Abstract: The objective of this paper is to analyse the health status of mining people in keonjhar district of Odisha.
Mining affects fresh water through heavy use of water in processing ore, and through water pollution from discharged mine effluent and seepage from tailings and waste rock impoundments. Increasingly, human activities such as mining threaten the water sources on which we all depend.
Thus, Iron ore has been mined for the past three thousand years by ancient and modern mankind. However, mining of iron ore has copious negative impacts on the environment. It degrades natural landscapes, surface and ground water quality, flora and fauna, as well as the ambient air quality within the mining area and its environs.
Uses of Iron Ore products We use iron to build bridges, buildings, cars, aircraft's, railroad, trains and home appliances like refrigerator, washing machines and utensils. Impacts on Land -Landscape altered, land caves in, soil erosion -Changes in land use pattern -Land becomes

Each of our mines has air-quality management plans that are reviewed and, if necessary, improved regularly. This type of monitoring helps ensure that our mines comply with air quality legislation and also helps allay the concerns that mining has given rise to a significant deterioration in air quality.
There is an appreciable and adagio impact of mining on ground and surface waters. development of mining through out the world, with the galloping advances in science and technology is changing the shape of our planet giving rise to fundamental transformation of the environment in which water resources play crucial roles.
Impacts of Mining. Mining can impact local communities both positively and negatively. While positive impacts such as employment and community development projects are important, they do not off-set the potential negatives. We have found mining can negatively affect people by:

Problems with mining waste. Mining waste has different characteristics depending on the type of ore being mined. Our Swedish ores can be roughly divided into oxidic and sulphidic ores. The oxidic ores predominate in Norrbotten's iron ore field, while the sulphidic ores are more prominent in, e.g. the Skellefteå field in Västerbotten.
25-7-2013· Environment Canada works to address the environmental impacts of mining. Waste rock and mine tailings can result in releases to water and soil. Acidic drainage and the leaching of metals from the mine workings and mine wastes may occur at metal mines. Acidic drainage can cause significant impacts on water quality and aquatic ecosystems.
