What Is Sand Mining? (with pictures) wiseGEEK

The process of harvesting sand from coastal regions is known as sand mining. Sand can be mined from anywhere it is found in great quantities, such as lake shores, river banks or sea shores, or it can be dredged from a seabed. Harvested sand serves a number of functions and plays an important role in many modern manufacturing activities, such as

Mineral Sands: NORM Appendix World Nuclear Association

Between 1980 and 1995 some 160,000 tonnes of monazite was sourced from mineral sand mining in Western Australia and exported to France for processing to recover rare earth minerals, but the French plant was closed due to its operators being unable to dispose of the radioactive wastes. Monazite is thus normally returned to the mine and dispersed
