Industrialization had increased requirement of more energy with mining for more minerals resultant pollution. Soil pollution due to different mining dust has become problem in district Balaghat, M.P beside that dust deposition on the surface of vegetation affects photosynthesis and growth of common plants nearby the mining areas. This review articles describes briefly the various mining sites in Balaghat district of Madhya Pradesh, India and dust chemical characteristics which had many effects on vegetation and soil. The physical and chemical characteristics of a range of mining dust types are explained and its effects on photosynthesis, respiration and transpiration. Plants growing on this atmosphere show a reduction in growth performance and yield. Visible injury symptoms and decreased in productivity on vegetation is well noticed. Most of the plant community structure is altered. However, there have been very few detailed studies on natural and semi-natural systems and some dust types are also much understudied. Recommendations for future research are made in order to overcome this knowledge gap
