Reclamation processes. As part of the life cycle of a surface coal mine, completed mine areas must undergo rehabilitation.When 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.

Two Decades of Mine Reclamation: Lessons learned from

Federal mining laws were an impetus to this program. Reclamation of mine sites, and the posting of bonding by coal mine companies to guarantee reclamation, had been always required. But the size of the bonds and the details of their release to the coal companies increased after 1977. The release of bonds became a three-stage process.

Justice family mines pose massive threat to Virginia

Mar 19, 2020 For the past 10 years, coal production has steadily declined in the Appalachian coalfields — and coal employment with it. However, a study released in 2018 determined that land disturbance from mining per ton of coal produced is at all time high. This trend of low coal production but high disturbance raises concerns about how well mine operators are equipped to fully reclaim their mines
