Channel dynamics over long timeframes

These climatic influences continue into the present and will be important if future climate change takes place as forecast. However, it has become increasingly difficult to isolate climate from the influence of human activity, particularly land clearing. Deforestation in parts of the Huang Ho (Yellow River) catchment in China between 200 BC and AD 600 is estimated to have increased sediment loads by an order of magnitude (Milliman et al. 1987). During the gold rush of the mid-19th century in the Sierra Mountains of California, hydraulic mining mobilized great amounts of waste gravel into the headwaters of the Sacramento River (James 1991). The lower Bear River aggraded as much as 5 m, and is continuing to adjust over 100 years later, which points to the very long time frame of river recovery following human disturbance. In some instances recovery may not be possible, as when river impoundment eliminates flood peaks, or when invading vegetation stabilizes the new configuration, as has...

Information from scientific research

In the last decade, however, increasing research has occurred in the Region in order to identify metallophytes. For example, scientific explorations performed in two different areas of northcentral Chile have recently resulted in an important number of new descriptions of copper-tolerant plants native and endemic to the country. The first study was carried out in a large area of north-central Chile that has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate type (the Coquimbo Region). Due to historic copper gold mining a large number, 395 (SERNAGEOMIN 1989,1990), of abandoned tailings storage facilities (TSF) are scattered throughout the area. Furthermore, metal-polluted soils and natural mineralised areas are also quite common inside the area. The results showed that 76 abandoned TSFs have been colonised by 106 local plants, 71 being native and endemic to Chile. In laboratory tests, 33 species were found to be copper-tolerant. A second study was performed in the Yerba Loca Natural Sanctuary (YLNS), a...

Increase of Mining Waste Caused by Deteriorating Ore Grade

Metal ores typically exist as oxides and sulfides bound together with waste rock. Mined crude ore is beneficiated to separate ore minerals from waste rock. At this stage, signifi cant amounts of solid waste (tailings) are inevitably generated the amount of valuable elements is relatively small compared to the total volume or mass of ores actually mined. Over time, as ore grade has decreased in most metals, the waste volume has tended to increase. For example, copper ore mined in the beginning of twentieth century contained about 3 copper (Graedel et al. 2002), but the current typical copper ore grade is now only about 0.3 . Thus, 1000 kg of copper is currently accompanied by more than 300,000 kg of waste. In the case of gold, the typical ore grade in Australian mines at the end of the nineteenth century was around 20 grams per 1000 kg, but current grade is ten times smaller. Thus, the amount of ore milled and wasted is about one-half to one million times the net gold content. In...

Informal And Unrecorded Mining Activity

National mineral production statistics vary in accuracy, and there is probably a certain amount of unrecorded, and often illegal, removal of gravel and rock in every country. Some countries have a large amount of small-scale artisanal mining, some of which may be unregulated and unrecorded. Gold Fields Mineral Services of London's estimate of 175t of gold being produced in 1995 by informal miners worldwide may be an underestimate (M.M. Veiga, personal communication 6 July 1998). Three million carats of diamonds may be mined informally each year in Africa (Holloway 1997). Because of low recovery rates when informal artisanal gold and gem miners open up sites with very low yields, these operators probably shift more than twice the mass of material per net tonne of pure mineral extracted than do their formal mining counterparts. L.K. Jeje (personal communication 1998) suggests a ratio as high as 3.7 million to 1 for artisanal gold mining in the Amazon, as compared with a ratio of about 1...

Examples of forest change

Beginning in 1830 the industrial revolution arrived, leading to a steady abandonment of the hard-won agricultural land. People moved to the growing urban areas, others migrated westwards to better land or the lure of the gold fields even further west. We have a unique window into this time of abandonment, as Foster (1999) shows, through the prolific journals of Henry Thoreau (1817-1862) who lived in New England as agriculture was on the wane. Land that over two centuries had been made suitable for productive agriculture was now abandoned. This led to an inevitable successional change as weeds, scrub and finally trees invaded the former farmland. White pine, pitch pine P. rigida, red cedar Juniperus virginiana were the commonest pioneers, with red maple Acer rubrum or birches on ploughed land. With time, oak came to dominate these pine forests, and they acquired the look of antiquity, yet old walls, piles of rocks moved from fields, ruined buildings and other artefacts in these forests...

Atlantic Empires and Caribbean Ecology

Portugal acquired an American presence in Brazil beginning in 1500, part of a seaborne empire that soon stretched to outposts in Africa, India, and Southeast Asia. There were fewer than 2 million Portuguese in 1650, with no substantial domestic sources of wealth. Nonetheless, its rulers entertained world-girdling ambitions (from 1580 to 1640, Portugal's rulers were the Spanish Habsburgs). Until the 1690s, when diamond and gold mines in central Brazil (Minas Gerais) changed the complexion of Brazil's economy, the important parts of the territory were the plantations of the northeast, where slave labor mainly from Angola raised sugarcane and other crops. Northeastern Brazil was lucrative enough that the Dutch went to considerable effort to seize and hold a good swathe of it early in the seventeenth century, departing only in 1653. The Portuguese had no colonial holdings and little trade in the Caribbean itself.

Exploitation of otters

After a Russian expedition in 1741 'discovered' the sea otter, a gold-rush for their skins started, and until 1800 Russian ships shot and collected tens of thousands of animals. In the late eighteenth century, Spanish ships joined in the fur trade along the Californian coast, and further north both British and American traders moved into the fray. Unlike the Russians, crews on the British and American ships did not capture sea otters themselves, but traded with the Indian population who did the hunting for them. Often barbaric in their dealings with the locals, these traders had a massive influence on the demise of the Indian tribes and their culture (Gibson 1992). The sea otter skins were transported to Canton and sold to the Chinese, for excellent profits.

Reindeer and Caribou

Rangifers were introduced into western Alaska during the 1890s, when Presbyterian missionary Sheldon Jackson, observing starvation among the Inupiat people, organized a U.S. federal government assistance program for the importation of Siberian reindeer and the training of native apprentices by immigrant Saami herdsmen. In fact, the historical evidence suggests that starvation was not particularly rampant in Alaska and that there was no pressing economic need for reindeer herding. But the discovery of gold near Nome at the turn of the century and the ensuing Gold Rush created a market demand for Rangifers to be used as draft animals. An incipient Eskimo aristocracy arose, in which a local woman known as Sinrock Mary became for a time the largest herd owner and the most powerful economic player in Arctic Alaska. From 1915, large seasonal gatherings of people and animals known as reindeer fairs flourished for a few brief years, until the devastating influenza epidemic of 1918. When the...

Sediment Supply

Excessive sediments flow into salt marshes where the catchment has lost vegetative cover as a result of logging, farming, or development. Inflows also occur where mining operations discharge materials directly to streams. Wastes from California's gold rush are still making their way to San Francisco Bay. At a much smaller estuary, the marsh plain of Tijuana Estuary in southern California has elevated 25-35 cm since 1963 due to erosion from rapidly urbanizing canyons in nearby Tijuana, Mexico. The impacts have been losses of microtopographic variation and local species richness.


Because it's less expensive to collect than grow them, there has been a commercial demand for wild ferns since the Victorian era, which contributes to the present loss of fern species. Fern diversity has also suffered from environmental degradation and loss of habitat, such as clear-cutting forests human-induced forest fires replacing ecologically mixed environments with monocultures or human habitations habitat invasion by alien species land pollution through agriculture, industry, improper waste disposal, and inadvertent toxic spillage and redirection, pollution, and siphoning off of waterways and their surrounding landscapes. On the plus side, horsetails have been used in gold prospecting, because of their great capacity to concentrate metals in their leaves, while recent studies indicate that bracken ferns have the potential to remove arsenic from polluted soil by drawing great quantities of it into their leaves.

Effects of pollution

Rivers is caused by gold mining, and in Amazonian giant otter habitats many fish carry concentrations of methyl mercury that far exceed recommended maximum levels for human consumption (Gutleb etal. 1997 Uryu etal. 2001). However, at least in the Peruvian Amazon, the scats of the giant otters contained relatively low levels of mercury (Gutleb et al. 1997), which is open to various interpretations. It is not known whether populations of the animals are affected. Any potential effect of this pollution may well be hidden, for instance by the devastations caused by poaching (Schenck 1997).
