 ee the scene which is dreadful to one s mind! After 20 years of mine shutdown, the stream water is still yellow brown, and the treatment needs 600 million yuan


Baihe County, Ankang City, Shaanxi Province has stopped mining pyrite since 2000. However, due to the lack of ecological restoration or risk control measures, the slag piled up in the open pit of mine caves and mountain areas still continuously transports sulfurous water to the downstream under the erosion of rainwater and spring streams, threatening the water quality of Hanjiang River.

20 years of stoppage of abandoned mines in Baihe County, Ankang City

The earliest pyrite mining in Baihe County, Ankang City, Shaanxi Province can be traced back to the 1950s and 1960s. At the most time, counties, townships and villages have their own mining enterprises. Due to the failure to insist on the exploitation and treatment of pyrite, the pollution of sulfur water in the local cultivated land and Baishi river basin is getting worse and worse. Baihe county has decided to stop the exploitation of pyrite resources and close all pyrite mining operation sites before December 31, 2000.

Waste slag piled up in the open air

Sulfonated water livestock can not drink

In another slag spot in Fenghuang village, a large amount of waste slag was piled up along the gully, and several houses were surrounded by slag. A black pipe on the high side also discharges sulfurous water into the river.

Since the river turned yellow, the local villagers have been afraid to use the water to irrigate the farmland. Now, the domestic water in the villagers homes is spring water from the mountain with pipes.

Environmental protection personnel said that these mines and slags that need to be treated are basically non main mines, and a large amount of funds will be needed to complete the treatment, which is estimated to be more than 600 million yuan.

In addition to funds, Ankang City Ecological Environment Bureau Baihe branch natural ecology unit chief Tang Hui said, there are technical problems. At present, from the national point of view, the technology maturity is not very high.
