Affected mining areas are comprised of the exposed sands/mining and affected waters/mining pits land cover classes. The inset table summarizes the total affected mining area as of 7 August 2005 and 3 August 2015 within the region analyzed. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
