The two prominent types of mining are subsurface and surface mining. The main problem with surface mining is that it disturbs the land and its exposed to weather meaning that rainfall could lead to the runoff of harmful chemicals within the mining waste (tailings). Subsurface mining disturbs the land less but its much more expensive and takes more energy and time to plan because a poorly built mine means higher chance of accidents.

It is varunscs11's turn to ask a question. If you get their (sorry grammar nazis) question right, then you can ask your

It's because their bodies are very sensitive to changes in their environment. Amphibian breathe mainly through their skin so that is why they are very sensitive to their surroundings. If their environment is changed by changing water temperature or salinity or pH, even by a little, they will die.
