The environment is the pollution of the air ( I imagine that the pollution of the water also), and the soil is denied the opportunity to stabilize and revitalize with nutrients. For the people, a lot of accidents occurred that could result in death or serious injury. While some people gained from the mining of gold, there were others. These people became workers, and worked and lived in awful conditions.
