Hence, most of the world's nations have passed regulations to decrease the impact.Work safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have significantly improved safety in mines. Unless future end-of-life recycling rates are stepped up, some rare metals may become unavailable for use in a variety of consumer products.These were used to make early tools and weapons; for example, high quality flint found in northern France, southern England and Poland was used to create flint tools.Flint mines have been found in chalk areas where seams of the stone were followed underground by shafts and galleries.Mining of stones and metal has been a human activity since pre-historic times.
There, the water stored in large reservoirs and tanks.
Due to the low recycling rates, some landfills now contain higher concentrations of metal than mines themselves.
Since the beginning of civilization, people have used stone, ceramics and, later, metals found close to the Earth's surface.
The mines at Grimes Graves and Krzemionki are especially famous, and like most other flint mines, are Neolithic in origin (ca 4000–3000 BC).
Other hard rocks mined or collected for axes included the greenstone of the Langdale axe industry based in the English Lake District.
