Sardinia is characterized by a large variety of geologic and hydrologic environments, and by a rich wealth of mineral resources, that fueled a millennial history of mining activity. Therefore, it provides an excellent ground for studies of the environmental impact of mining activity. In this communication, we summarize the results of our studies, specifically concerning the deposits of Baccu Locci (polymetallic�Pb,As), Furtei (epithermal Au), Monteponi (Pb-Zn-Ag), and Montevecchio (Pb-Zn-Ag). In abandoned mining districts (Baccu Locci, Monteponi, and Montevecchio), because of a poor management of environmental issues, we observe significant heavy metal contamination. On the other hand, in the active Furtei mine the first four years of exploitation did not cause remarkable changes with respect to pre-mining baseline conditions.
