Mining is a huge industry in Australia, (as shown in the map below) and around the world. Australia has significant reserves of minerals and resources including iron ore, nickel, uranium, aluminium, copper, silver, opals, zinc, coal and natural gas. These are mined in sites around the country and in many cases, exported to other countries, contributing significantly to the economy. The construction and operation of a mining site is temporary, lasting only as long as the resource to be mined is available and its extraction and use is still profitable. However, the impact of a mine on an ecosystem can be long lasting as it inevitably results in major habitat changes for the flora and fauna of the area. What impact does mining have on the biodiversity of an ecosystem and explain using reference to a specific example, how the damaged ecosystem can be restored after mining. (5 marks)
