Subsurface mining is less disruptive to the environment that strip mining, however the danger to the miners is greater

Disadvantages:Surface mining is very dangerous.Advantages:Subsurface mining is saferSubsurface mining is cheaper,Subsurface mining is faster60% of the mining in the US is Subsurface mining.


Disadvantages: It is harder than surface mining and it also costs more money and takes more time Advantages: Leads to more minerals and ore, also creates less pollution.


i don't know the types of subsurface mining, but i know some facts.surface mining is safer and easier than subsurface mining.You don't have much air underground.It has no or very little advantages compared to surface mining.



Mining techniques can be divided into two common excavation types: surface mining (above ground) and subsurface (underground) mining. sometimes subsurface mining is also called deep mining like in my text book p.s i am in 8th grade


Surface mining is safer and easier than subsurface mining.Surface mining does more damage to the environment than subsurface.Surface mining creates more of a mess then subsurface or open cut mining.ON TH OTHER HAND-Subsurface mining is very dangerous.Subsurface mining allows you to retreive minerals from underground.Subsurface mining requires you to go underground, where you will have very little air.

advantage:more oil disadvantage:environment messed up



advantages: creates jobs. Gets a lot of limestone at once. disadvantages: destroys natural wildlife. Noise and dust polution. Expensive



Disadvantages are: Extinction of animal species Pollution Poisoning the water with fuels etc from mining equiptment Advantages are: Scientific results on how the animals survive and research into how the krill are surviving and research into the minerals and phytoplankton. Hope this helps, :)
