Coal mining is one of the core industries that contribute to the economic development of a country but deteriorate theenvironment. Being the primary source of energy coal has becomeessential to meet the energy demand of a country. It isexcavated by both opencast and underground mining methods andaffects the environment, especially water resources, by discharginghuge amounts of mine water. The mine water may be acidic orneutral depending upon the pyrite content in the coal asinorganic impurities… 
Water Characterisation of Coal Mining Areas of Chakwal, Punjab, Pakistan
Abstract. Discharged water from mines shows alteration in its physical properties and may be acidicdepending upon the concentration of heavy metals and sulphate ions which pose hazardous effects
Pollution due to Coal Mining Activity and its Impact on Environment
Utilization of natural resources in the form of coal mines has a positive impact on economic and energy development, in addition to coal mining activities have a negative impact on the environment
Environmental impact of coal mining and coal seam gas production on surface water quality in the Sydney basin, Australia
The study revealed that impacted water downstream of the mine discharge points contained higher metal content than the upstream reference locations, and the newly proposed environmental water quality index (EWQI) lead to better trend in the impact of coal and coal seam gas mining activities on surface water quality when compared to the downstream reference water samples.
Environmental Impact of Coal Mining: A Case Study on the Barapukuria Coal Mining Industry, Dinajpur, Bangladesh
The study was performed on the Barapukuria coal mining project in northwestern Bangladesh to evaluate the impacts of coal mining on the surrounding environment specifically on soil and water. Coal
Environmental impacts of coal mine and thermal power plant to the surroundings of Barapukuria, Dinajpur, Bangladesh
The pH values, heavy metal, organic carbon and exchangeable cations of coal water treated in the farmland soil suggest that coal mining deteriorated the surrounding water and soil quality, and the SO42− concentration in water samples was beyond the range of World Health Organisation standard.
Hydrogeochemical investigation and quality assessment of mine water resources in the Korba coalfield, India
Hydrogeochemical investigation of water discharged from the mines of Korba coalfield was carried out to assess mine water geochemistry, solute acquisition processes, and its suitability for domestic,
Coal mining in northeast India: an overview of environmental issues and treatment approaches
Northeast India has a good deposit of sub-bituminous tertiary coal. The northeast Indian coals have unusual physico-chemical characteristics such as high sulfur, volatile matter and vitrinite
