A Comparative Study of Marble Mine in Makrana Region with Respect to Soil Pollution

Authors(3) :-NehaSaxena, Rajesh Kumar Yadav, Gaurav Sharma

An array of operation from mines is getting increases day by day and certainly some positive and negative environmental aspects of these activities has been generated. Marble industries increases rapidly and causes soil pollution. Soil Pollution is the most direct and hazardous impact in the mining area. Makrana is a biggest Marble cluster of India. From Marble Industries slurry powder is come out from the earth and mixed with soil. Slowly soils upper strata become destroy from this slurry. To assess the the impact of mining on soil, one of the mine was selected in the Tehsil- Makrana and District-Nagaur. The study was conducted for two summer season (April, May, June) in 2013 and 2014. There is much more variation in both the results. The results shows that in the summer season 2014 the soil is much Detroit then in 2013 .Because in 2013 mining was at the initial stage but in 2014 mining was in the process it was degrade the quality of the soil, dust, stones and boulders, water (Slurry) was mixed with the soil. Thus several changes occurs in the physical, chemical and microbiological properties of soil and soil fertility gradually deteriorates year by year.
