Hurley, New Mexico US. This copper mine has for centuries been the trigger for violence between Native American people and the Spanish, then Northern European immigrants. It is now worked as a large open-pit mine, where ore-bearing rock is fractured by blasting to form levels called benches, before then being removed with large diesel-electric haul trucks. Diagonal ramps carry utilities into the mine pit, bringing electricity in and pumped water out. (Photo by J. Henry Fair/Industrial Scars/Papadakis Publisher)

Luling, Louisiana, US. New evidence contradicts previous claims of the relative safety of glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, which is manufactured here. It is often used in conjunction with seeds that have been genetically modified to tolerate its application, meaning that anyone consuming these crops is eating a genetically modified plant, and whatever residue of the pesticide that remains.

Hurley, New Mexico, US. Copper ore leaching pad at El Chino mine. A network of pipes drips dilute sulphuric acid which percolates through massive heaps of low-grade ore, leaching a solution collected at the bottom for refining to metallic copper in the solvent extraction and electrowinning process.

Fort McMurray, Canada. The first step in the oil sands process after extraction is “upgrading”, in which particulate matter is removed from the bitumen and its viscosity reduced so that refineries can process it. This is a photograph of the top of a petroleum tank, with a walkway out to the covered inspection hatch in the centre. This tank stores 400,000 to 500,000 barrels of the world’s dirtiest oil, obtained by excavating large areas of Canadian tar sands. (Photo by J. Henry Fair/Industrial Scars/Papadakis Publisher)

Kiruna, Sweden. Waste impoundment at the Kiruna iron mine. The mine draws on the world’s largest underground deposit of magnetite, a rich ore containing 60% iron as well as unwanted rock that is separated and disposed of in large waste impoundments.

New Roads, Louisiana, US. This coal ash power plant is the 27th worst carbon emitter of US power plants, one of the 50 worst mercury polluters, and is known to be contaminating the groundwater around it with selenium which is leaching from its ash waste ponds. Coal ash is known to contain a variety of toxins including lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, boron, selenium. (Photo by J. Henry Fair/Industrial Scars/Papadakis Publisher)

Springville, Pennsylvania, US. Collection pit for drilling waste containing ground rock, drilling muds (the lubricants and chemicals used during drilling), and in some cases radioactive material existing in the target shale layer. The overspray at the top is a violation and a danger to any water bodies downhill. (Photo by J. Henry Fair/Industrial Scars/Papadakis Publisher)

22

Gulf of Mexico, US. The failed BP Macondo well emitted natural gas as well as liquid hydrocarbon contaminants of different composition and viscosity. The gas percolated into the atmosphere invisibly. The liquids, which contained suspended solids, were of different densities which floated at different levels. The oil was treated with Corexit, a dispersant chemical designed to mix with and alter surface tension of the oil and ultimately break it up and sink it. The oil in this photo is floating just under the water’s surface. (Photo by J. Henry Fair/Industrial Scars/Papadakis Publisher)

Gramercy, Louisiana, US. Red mud waste material is pumped on to the upper surface of a massive waste impoundment in a water slurry. The impoundments are essentially very large shallow bowls, engineered to de-water the slurry through evaporation and an internal drainage system fed by an arrangement of funnel-like decant points where water collects in pools.
