A state-funded abandoned mine land reclamation program for Ohio was realized with the establishment of the Unreclaimed Lands Fund in The fund is utilized to complete reclamation projects on public and private lands affected by surface mining prior to Ap bance characteristics vary from region to region, according to natural and geological conditions, coal mining area land reclamation was.

    The collapse of the coal industry is devastating small communities across the Western United States, but reclaiming these mined lands quickly could create up to 6, full-time jobs per year in the critical two to three year period after mine closure according to our new report, Coal Mine Cleanup report estimates potential reclamation job creation for the Intermountain West (Colorado.   The reclamation for the surface effects of coal mining activities (including underground operations) on public and private lands in the US is based on the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of (Micsak, ). This principle law (i.e., SMCRA/PL ) defines the federal standards for the reclamation of surface mine sites.

Abstract Part A of the book, is a review of surface mined land reclamation technology. This review is specific to mined lands in the arid/semiarid western USA. Subjects addressed include mining techniques, mine spoil handling and grading, topsoil handling, seed bed preparation, seeding and planting, and irrigation and fertilization.

This mine provides a unique opportunity to evaluate the success of reclamation measures that were adopted shortly after state and federal legislation had been enacted, at a time when reclamation science was relatively new (Grim and Hill ).

Reclamation Land and Water Surface Use - Bureau of Reclamation. The SMRP makes sure that all lands and waters within the state are protected and reclaimed after mining is complete. It also provides consistent regulation of both permitted and unpermitted surface mines statewide.

The SMRP monitors surface mines and issue reclamation permits. Monitoring for compliance is usually performed by on-site inspection. The U.S. Government's Official Website for the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE).

OSMRE's business practices are to reclaim abandoned mine lands (Title IV), regulate active coal mines (Title V), and apply sound science through technology transfer. Additional information is available, see PA's AML Fact Sheet: Pennsylvania's Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act Funded Abandoned Mine Lands Program: Past, Present, and Future.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the SMCRA Funded Abandoned Mine Land Program (PDF) The Office of the Director Eric E. Cavazza, P. Reclamation is the practice of returning lands that have been disturbed to a use equal to or better than that which existed prior to disturbance.

Reclamation is required for surface mines in the United States and is practiced world-wide by the mining industry.

Since its inception incomprehensive reclamation has evolved rapidly. The public may apply to use Reclamation land, facilities, and waterbodies, and may engage in the use only after proper authorization is received from Reclamation.

Use authorizations are not required for permitted public recreational use of recreation areas and facilities open to the public.

Eligible lands and waters are those which were mined for coal or affected by coal mining or coal processing, and were abandoned or left inadequately reclaimed prior to the enactment of SMCRA on August 3,and for which there was no continuing reclamation responsibility under.

Surface mining and mined land reclamation: a selected bibliography with emphasis on literature relevant to Western surface coal mining and Western mined land reclamation.

[Rudolf Aarne Honkala; Old West Regional Commission.]. Reclamation is the combined process by which adverse environmental effects of surface mining are minimized and mined lands are returned to a beneficial end use. End uses may be open space, wildlife habitat, agriculture, or residential and commercial development.

Surface Coal Mining and Reclamation. Surface coal mining involves disturbing overlying rock layers (overburden) to expose and extract coal reserves using the area mining method wherein the overburden above the uppermost coal seam and the innerburden between the lower coal seams are removed in parallel strips (pits) across the coalfield until the area is mined.

The Division of Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) works throughout the state’s coal fields to protect the public from health and safety problems caused by mining that occurred prior to Examples of hazards that can be found on abandoned mine sites are landslides, water-filled pits, open mine portals and dilapidated equipment and buildings.

Although the process of mine reclamation occurs once mining is completed, the planning of mine reclamation activities occurs prior to a mine being permitted or started. Mine reclamation creates useful landscapes that meet a variety of goals ranging from the restoration of productive ecosystems .
