environmental impact of iron ore mining

Iron ore is an important mineral in Chhattisgarh. The production of iron ore is 5.50 million tones per year. Due to massive extraction of iron ore, it pollutes air, water and soil. When iron in solution reaches the water table it pollutes the ground water, while dissolved iron in surface water reacts with soil to cause soil erosion and effect the soil profile and sometimes minor particles of
