      The Abandoned Mine Site Characterization and Cleanup Handbook (Handbook) has been developed by the Environmental Protection Agency as a resource for project managers working on addressing the environmental concerns posed by inactive mines and mineral processing. Coal mine reclamation projects are very expensive and require coordination of local and federal agencies to identify resources for the most economic way of reclaiming mined land. Location of resources for mine reclamation is a spatial problem. This article presents a methodology that allows the combination of spatial data on resources for the coal mine reclamation and uses GIS analysis to.

      Sullivan Mine: Closure and Reclamation The case of Kimberley After almost a century of continuous operation, the decision to close the Sullivan Mine in Kimberley, British Columbia posed a serious threat to the future survival of the town. This case study takes a look at how a municipality and a mining company worked in.   ABANDONED MINE LANDS RECLAMATION PROGRAM CHAPTER (Rule , continued) July, 5 (4) Upon completion of detailed site evaluations, Potential Project Investigative Reports are submitted to the Office of Surface Mining (O.S.M.), Abandoned Lands Section for further evaluation.

A Citizens’ Guide to Reclaiming Abandoned Mine Sites Ecologically. A new website will be launched in September at that provides a layman’s portal to a wealth of information about the reclamation of abandoned mine sites in the US.

Reclamation processes. As part of the life cycle of a surface coal mine, completed mine areas must undergo mining ends, operators must restore the land to its approximate original contour (AOC) or leave the land graded and suitable for a “higher and better” post-mining land use (PMLU) that has been approved as part of the original mining permit application.

Reclamation of abandoned mine land is a very complex process. Once the reclamation plan is complete and vegetation has established, the assessment of the reclaimed site is necessary to evaluate the success of reclamation.

Evaluation of reclamation success focuses on measuring the occurrence and distribution of soil microflora community which is.Providing a wide range of mine reclamation services for 25 years, Pioneer assists various state and federal agencies (state departments of environmental quality, EPA, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Army Corp of Engineers) with all aspects of abandoned mine land (AML) reclamation.
