English term or phrase:background
Other natural conditions create a background setting that is similar to the conditions created by mining activities. For example, many natural outcrops at the site are observed to expose mineralized rock with the potential to generate acid drainage and leach metals. Because these conditions exist in the natural environment, the impacts of mining must be assessed relative to this background condition.
