Environmental effect of mineral exploitation in Nigeria

Recent environmental impact studies of limestone mining and cement industry in Sagamu have revealed a declining kola nut output from the plantations within a few kilometers radius of the cement factory (Aigbedion, 2005; Adekoya, 2003). This phenomenon is most probably associated with dust pollution as plenty of dust is dis-
