Assessment of Terrain and Land Use/Land Cover Changes of Mine Sites using Geospatial Techniques in Plateau State, Nigeria

A. Owolabi

Volume 11, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 935-948


  In this paper, we report a geospatial assessment of the selected mine sites in the Plateau State, Nigeria. The aim of this work is to determine the impact of mining on the terrain as well as the Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) of the host communities. The Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) is used for ...  Read More

Assessment of radioactive contamination in water bodies around mine workings using radiation counter

A.O. Owolabi

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 795-806


  The vulnerability of water bodies to contamination within the neighbourhood of open mine cast environ cannot be overemphasized. Evidence of radioactive trace elements associated with the target minerals in the Plateau State (Nigeria) showed the extent of this vulnerability. In order to address this challenge, ...  Read More
