Mining adversely affects the environment by inducing loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, and contamination of surface water, groundwater, and soil. 

Mining can also trigger the formation of sinkholes.

We should stop mining because it affects animals and the environment of our world. Mining also causes reduce in oxygen and beautiful areas of natural wonders. It causes global warming, deforestation, extinction with animals and plants and natural erosion. Most importantly, it affects us for a number or important reasons. Overall, we should stop mining because it causes a number of bad things and it affects other things, not having anything to do with it.

Water Pollution

Mining also causes water pollution which includes metal contamination, increased sediment levels in streams, and acid mine drainage. Pollutants released from processing plants, tailing ponds, underground mines, waste-disposal areas, active or abandoned surface or haulage roads, etc., act as the top sources of water pollution. Sediments released through soil erosion cause siltation or the smothering of stream beds. It adversely impacts irrigation, swimming, fishing, domestic water supply, and other activities dependent on such water bodies. High concentrations of toxic chemicals in water bodies pose a survival threat to aquatic flora and fauna and terrestrial species dependent on them for food. The acidic water released from metal mines or coal mines also drains into surface water or seeps below ground to acidify groundwater. The loss of normal pH of water can have disastrous effects on life sustained by such water
