Correct option is (d) Nutrient absorption

The explanation is: Erosion, Sinkholes and Contamination are caused due to the  toxic metals released during tailings which causes a potential harm to the environment whereas nutrient absorption is a process by which the nutrient is absorbed from the soil, which is not an issue in this case.
