12 Impacts on water quality

12.01 - the potential effects of particle-laden plumes in the water column
12.02 - increased total dissolved solids, trace metals, and other pollutants
12.03 - effects on underground waters and adjacent aquifers (chemical and physical changes)
12.04 - acid mine drainage potential
12.05 - drawdown or rising of groundwater levels
12.06 - contamination of groundwater and surface water with chemicals and oil

13 Impacts on air quality

13.01 - particulate matter transported by the wind as a result of transportation of materials
13.02 - gas emissions from the combustion of fuels in stationary and mobile sources
13.03 - noise at surface

14 Impacts on fish and wildlife

14.01 - impacts of the mining operation on surrounding ecosystems (impacts to living organisms, removal or deterioration of adjacent habitats, disturbance of migration routes, disturbance of sediment which can create a sediment plume)
14.02 - the toxic chemicals and fuel used in mining, their effects on ecosystems in the case if they are released by the mining process
14.03 - impacts of suspended particles in water (impact on organisms, creation of additional sediment plumes or sediment release to adjacent surface aquifers, geochemical changes due to changes in redox conditions); abrasion effects on machinery (higher possibility of failure)
14.04 - disruption of migration routes/nesting/breeding activities by presence of humans, light and noise from transportations and mining operations
14.05 - potential local or regional loss of endemic or endangered species / creation of replacement habitats
14.06 - impacts of underwater light, vibration
14.07 - impacts of night time light emissions

15 Impacts on geology

15.01 - the potential for catastrophic slope failures
15.02 - the destruction of unique geological features, fossils or minerals

16 Impacts on social values

16.01 - impacts on livelihoods
16.02 - impacts on public health (surface and groundwater contamination)
16.03 - increased traffic and truck trips (safety, noise, exhaust)
16.04 - impacts of underwater light, vibration
16.05 - vibration, tremors, fractures on buildings

17 Impacts of mining waste

17.01 - mining waste geotechnical stability
17.02 - mining waste stable chemically
17.03 - prevention of dusting
17.04 - Hazardous substances leakage or spillage – release of toxic ore, fuel and other hazardous material; oil or hydraulic fluid leaks from machinery
17.05 - Fire and explosion (air emissions and runoff of contaminants)
17.06 - Evaluation of possible impacts of natural hazards (earthquakes, severe weather...)
17.07 - Accidents on transport routes (fuel, ore transportation etc..), pathways through protected areas
17.08 - health status of workers
17.09 - regular control of harmful materials and release from waste dumps (air, water particles, dissolution) at the site
17.10 - ensure systematic maintenance, service and testing of equipment and devices
17.11 - ensure protection against fire
17.12 - measurements of concentrations of harmful substances in the air at the site and ensure preventing of spreading them
17.13 - personal safety equipment should be available
17.14 - safe access to the site, which should enable fast and safe evacuation routes
17.15 - restriction of movement in the mining area by unauthorised personnel and wild animals
17.16 - transport and access routes and loading areas should be dimension and arranged so that they ensure free-flowing and safe traffic
17.17 - transport routes should be visibly marked
17.18 - workplaces should be organised in the way that workers are secured against bad weather conditions and falling objects; the workers should not be exposed to harmful noise and hazardous fumes, steam and dust
17.19 - ensure adequate equipment for evacuation and rescue, which should be allocated at accessible places and set for immediate use
17.20 - non-flammable, non-toxic and non-harmful use of hydraulic fluids
17.21 - plan for the mobilisation of rescue services and civil protection services in the case of major accidents
