These video gives a clear and  very understandable
view about the various activities that takes place in most mining sectors.Degrading of the land includes, the cutting down of trees as well as using chemicals to blast river boundaries, to get access to the hidden treasure or minerals available.

Mining in general,involves a lot of activities in its operations.Sometimes, a dam is needed to be built for the process of the minerals that includes gold,diamond,bauxite and manganese.

THIS  VIDEO SHOWS A BUILT DAM  IN A MINING SECTOR USED IN CARRYING OUT THEIR DUTIES. ACCORDINGLY.

Miners in such places, as seen in the video do put in measures to ensure that,workers are well protected from  all kinds of dangers,by providing them with the necessary tools and equipments needed in performing their duties. On the other hand,illegal miners do not put in any measures to safeguard them from  taking risk.With the fact that the illegal miners are mostly unskillful,they also uses unprotected tools and equipments and as a result,serve as a threat to the nation.
Therefore,for the mining sectors to be successful,there is the need for them to make sure that,they perform their social responsibilities towards the various communities in which they operate,as a means of compensation to them,in return of the resources being taken from them. Provisions of facilities such as schools,hospitals,good roads,markets,electricity and others,will not only improve upon the developmental projects in the various mining communities,but the nation as a whole.
