Advantages of Underground Mining are: * It allows minerals to be extracted from deep underground * It doesn't create a mess like open cut or surface mining * Does not affect the physical environment as much as surface mining

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.

There no advantages: mining is not allowed in Antarctica, based on The Antarctic Treaty.

Surface mining is faster, less expensive and less dangerous to workers than underground mining. However, it can negatively affect the environment, plants and animals just like underground mining.

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.

most activities is done underground so it does not effect environmental problems compared to surface mining

The advantages of surface mining are: * It is cheaper to extract the ore or metal than underground mining * Less chance of workers dying from toxic fumes, therefore it is safer unlike underground mining. * It is also faster The disadvantages of surface mining are: * That it destroys the landscape and environment * Effects the habitats of fauna potentially effecting the existing ecosystem in that area * Flora is destroyed * Causes noise, air and water pollution

The advantage is that the mining town gets More minerals as normal.

In surface mining we dont make any tunnels. Surface mining is less risks as underground mining. In surface mining we follows the several conditions which are provides saftey.

Surface mining occurs close to the surface (less than a mile deep), while underground mining is underground.

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.

the 5 types of mining are "sub-surface mining, surface mining, open-pit mining, dredging, and strip mining" please like :)

what are the different types of surface mining

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

Surface mining is a method of mining used to extract minerals and metals which are near the surface of the earth. For More go to
