  • About the Edition

    A bulletin including guidelines for surface mines in areas of acid producing materials was developed and became a standard for mining activities to reduce acid mine drainage (AMD). It included methods of prediction, prevention and treatment of AMD.

The affected area includes the disturbed area; any area upon which surface coal mining and reclamation operations are conducted; any adjacent lands the use of which is incidental to surface coal mining and reclamation operations; all areas covered by new or existing roads used to gain access to, or for hauling coal to or from, surface coal.

Farmer, Jr. et. al., OSM J/TVA, , U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation. The mining of coal, production of oil and gas and mining within the banks of streams are not subject to the Act. The DOC administers the Surface Mining Land Conservation and Reclamation Act (K.S.A. ) that became effective July 1, The purpose of the program is to ensure any land disturbed for mining purposes, other than coal and.

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. The Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining administers the State’s approved SMCRA program regulating the surface and underground mining of coal. The Division evaluates applications for mining permits, revisions and renewals, permit transfers, bond releases, and exploration, issues and maintains permits and conducts inspections of coal mines to.

Review of procedures for surface mining and reclamation in areas with acid-producing materials by Jeffrey G. Skousen Download PDF EPUB FB2

During the mining process that would help control AMD, emphasizing procedures for: 1. accurately sampling and analyzing overburden to identify alkaline‐ or acid‐producing materials, 2. mixing acid material with alkaline material or ameliorants for acid neutralization, and.

EWRC EWRC. Surface mining methods dominate the world production of minerals. Currently, almost all non-metallic minerals [more than 95%], most metallic minerals [more than 90%] and a large fraction of coal.

Introduction. Highly mechanized mining processes are widely used in surface mining because they generally provide an efficient approach for achieving high production (Shrestha and Lal, ).However, high production is also associated with large volumes of waste production (Ramani, ).During surface mining, the excavated materials from depths of m are stripped off and they vary.

Skousen, S.W., Miller, S., and R. Smart, The Surface Mining Act placed a levy per ton on all coal produced in the USA.

This fund can be used to finance the restoration of areas that were not reclaimed in the past and other action needed to alleviate off-site impacts of the unreclaimed areas. From a new consideration has been given to the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act.

Good reclamation allows for proper future use and it limits environmental impacts. It is expected that surface miners do what’s called ‘segmental reclamation’, where they restore portions of the mine while other areas continue to be worked. This helps reduce the cost of reclamation at the end of mining.

Placer mining affects large surface areas for the v olume of material mined, is highly visible and has serious environmental problems with surface disturbance and stream pollution.

The review sample included file data of project areas selected for AML reclamation during the evaluation year.

During the evaluation year DEQ-MWCB selected one non-coal project area for reclamation. The file data contained a Public Meeting Attendance Record for the non-coal project.

“Mined lands” means the surface, subsurface, and groundwater of an area in which surface mining operations will be, are being, or have been conducted, including private ways and roads appurtenant to any such area, land excavations, workings, mining waste, and areas in which structures, facilities, equipment, machines, tools, or other materials or property which result from or are used in surface mining operations.
