Background information and definitions
Mine tailings, which are the ore waste of mines, typically in the form of a mud-like material, originate from both coastal and land-based mining activities and can be disposed of in aquatic environments causing chemical contamination. Ceasing or prohibiting the disposal of mining waste at sea or in rivers may reduce pollution and potential harm to aquatic and semi-aquatic reptiles.
