ReclamationMine:  Reclamation and Environmental Protection

About ReclamationMine

This site covers all issues associated with reclamation of mining sites worldwide. The focus is on these aspects of reclamation: geomorphology, geology, surface water management, geotechnical stability, and the social and economic aspects of restoration of mining sites.

It is also a focused location where information about advances in technologies related to environmental protection and reclamation associated with mining can be found. Links to useful resources related to reclamation in mining are also provided.

This is your site: we seek your input and your contributions. Please send us your technical papers, case histories, photos, and news so that we can post them and enhance dissemination of events and activities relevant to reclamation and environmental protection.
