Wildlife and Sanctuary by Stone quarries


A Study on Impact Assessment on Wildlife & Sanctuary by Stone quarries in and around Balaram Ambaji Wildlife Sanctuary, Banaskhantha


Objectives

  • To study the present status of ecosystem and wildlife within the study area.
  • To study the Mining & Crushing process and evaluate the anticipated impacts on the biodiversity of the region as well as on sanctuary.
  • To recommend mitigation measures to minimize adverse impact on wildlife sanctuary.
  • To Suggest Environment Management Plan for the Mining lease areas.

Funded by

  • M/S Param Udhyog & Others (Mine lease holders)

Size of funding

  • 3, 50, 000/-

Description of project

The conversion of naturally occurring rock into broken & crushed stone products involves series of unit operations during mining drilling, blasting, loading and transportation during crushing, screening, conveying, loading and transferring of raw material and final products. All unit operations are potentially significant sources of particulate emission either from primary source itself or secondary fugitive dust. These may lead to adverse impact on surrounding environment, human and wildlife sanctuary/forest ecology. To evaluate this probable impacts a study based on the approach of local stone quarry lease holders were taken up by GEC during the year 2008-09. This study was conducted to prepare ISWAR, specifically to obtain NOC from the Department of Forest & Environment to carry out operation of mining and crusher units of Ms. Param Udhyog & Others.
