Environmental Risks in Open Pit Mines: Representation of a Temporal Evolution Related to Water Factor

S. B. Mondoukpe Lagnika, Robert Hausler


Natural resources are sources of much ecological instability. They are subjects of many types of research and led to the strengthening of measures. However, the exposure to hazards (water-air-soil pollution, radiation, degradation, etc.) due to such industries as mining continuous. This paper intends to show the dynamic relationships between production and time as part of the synergy of the whole extraction system over time. Given to sensitives issues known in the heart of mining operations, water is, therefore, the only environmental factor considered to lighten the research methodology. So, after the hypothesis, a temporal graphic with time and mining production level as explanatory and dependent variables is developed. Then, attention is given to the hypothesis validation used to highlight the joint result of the two variables. This is done by a literature review on environmental management risks tools existing, in-depth on the open pit mines with the simple linear regression analysis. The paired T-test Student result will help to clarify the potential of this statistical approach.
