Abstract:   (114 Views)
Background and Aim: Since coal mines cause pollution of water, soil, air, if not scientifically and seriously addressed to eliminate it, we will face a huge calamity of pollution and even a threat to human health, and on the other hand, usually Evaluating environmental impacts is considered as one of the optimal ways to overcome environmental challenges and achieve sustainable environmental development.  This study was conducted to evaluate the environmental impacts of coal mine in the north of the Iran using the Leopold matrix method.
Material and Method: This descriptive study was donein summer 2017 to evaluate the environmental impacts of the Galiran coal mine in the north of Iran. Data was collected through field visits and checklist and analyzed by using the Leopold matrix.
Results: The total number of negative effects with the frequency of 310 effects is more in biological environment than other environments and the total number of positive effects with the frequency of 162 is related to the socioeconomic. The analysis of coal mining data through the Leopold matrix in the four studied environments showed that Galiran coal mine has a negligible positive effect on the socioeconomic and has severe negative consequences in the biological environment.
Conclusion: It is impossible to completely eliminate the negative effects and impacts of a Coal Mine, but it is possible to reduce the negative effect of coal mining operations, especially in the biological environment, through corrective actions and non-operational methods in the form of an environmental management program.
