Abstract

HERNANDEZ-JATIB, Naisma; ULLOA-CARCASES, Mayda; ALMAGUER-CARMENATE, Yuri  and  FERRER, Yiezenia Rosario. ENVIRONMENTAL EVALUATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS DEPOSIT EXPLOITATION IN LA INAGUA, GUANTANAMO, CUBA. Luna Azul [online]. 2014, n.38, pp.146-158. ISSN 1909-2474.

This study aims to assess the environmental impact produced by the exploitation of "La Inagua" limestone deposit and to develop the corrective measures plan to minimize the negative effects and to make mining compatible with environmental protection. An environmental impact evaluation methodology was used in this study which integrates different proposals by other researchers. Environmental impacts caused by the actions of clearing, removal of raw material, drilling and blasting, excavations, transportation, processing of the raw material and its storage were identified, as well as the interaction between these actions and the environmental factors (soil, air, water, flora, fauna, landscape, infrastructure and economy). It was established that the most significant impacts occur during the clearing and removal of raw material while the most affected environmental factors are soil, air, water and the economy. Finally, corrective measurements are proposed in order to mitigate the environmental impacts.

Keywords : Evaluation of environmental impacts; limestone deposit; construction materials; open cast mining.
