AbstractIran is one of the most seismically active areas
of the world and frequently suffers from destructive earthquakes. Rare studies on anthropogenic-induced seismicity
in Iran may be related to less attention to triggered events
and more concern to natural origin of earthquakes. Hence,
the present study as a frontier research aims to investigate
the mining-induced earthquakes in Iran. For this purpose,
distribution of ~ 76,000 seismic events was investigated
between the years 2006 and 2013. This study considered a
correlation test to investigate the possible mining triggering of the seismic events based on a network of 194
geographical pixels (1° × 1°) in ArcGIS. Results conveniently confirmed a positive meaningful relation between
all earthquake events with magnitudes M > 0.5 and mining activities in Iran (R= 0.42). Detailed results confirmed
that the most of earthquake swarms (at least ~ 60%) had
mining-induced origin, which were spatially located in
same pixels of metallic mineral mining sites. The correlation test between earthquake swarms and mining activitie
