    The Office of Geology is the component of the Department of Environmental Quality. Geology is the basis of the environment. Information collected by Office of Geology research into Mississippi’s geology is vital to nearly every area of air, land, and water and benefits the people and economy of the state. Work Areas. Mining and Reclamation. FUNDING ABANDONED MINE RECLAMATION IN MONTANA. Montana's Abandoned Mine Reclamation Bureau is funded by a per ton tax assessed at the national level on coal production. This abandoned mine reclamation fund was established by the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of The money is made available through Congressional appropriation.

      Since , more than million acres of mined lands have been restored for wildlife areas and wetlands, recreation areas, economic development parks, farms, golf courses, and other uses beneficial to the local community. At all U.S. mining operations, detailed plans for how land will be restored after use must be approved by government officials before mining begins. Reclamation . Drinking Water. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the main federal law that ensures the quality of Americans' drinking water. Under SDWA, EPA sets standards for drinking water quality and oversees the states, localities, and water suppliers who implement those standards. Read more here About the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Additionally, the Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) Program was created to facilitate the reclamation of mining properties that were abandoned prior to Reclamation of both active and abandoned coal mines involves the restoration of topography, soils, vegetation, and water quality to certain environmental, health, and safety standards specified.

The reclamation plan must include, among other criteria, the pre-mining condition and use of the land to be mined; the proposed use reclamation the land after reclamation; an estimated time table for the reclamation; and the steps that will be taken to comply with the relevant air and water quality laws.

In addition to providing the reclamation plan. 13 rows  The Water Quality Mining contributes in a variety of ways to the Division of Mined Land.

Stewards of the Earth’s Natural Resources – HGL provides expert planning, design, and restoration services to federal and state regulatory agencies, management organizations, and enterprises engaged in mine site operations and reclamation.

As the world’s demand for mineral resources grows, HGL recognizes the increasing importance of developing sustainable solutions that prevent future. COVID Resources.

The NMLRC has been studying the effectiveness of acid base accounting for predicting postmining and reclamation water quality (Skousen et al., ).

Overburden analyses, permit maps, and predictions of postmining and reclamation water quality data were collected from regulatory agency permit files from several states in the Appalachian coal.

This volume, "Effects of Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation on Ground and Surface Water Quality: Research and Case Histories from Indiana," gathers together information learned by researchers who.

T his chapter outlines the basic steps involved in mining, processing, and reclamation that might be suitable for uranium ore deposits in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

For uranium ore deposits, the choice of mining methods and processing options is very deposit-specific and dependent on many variables such as the quality and quantity of the ore, the shape and depth of the ore deposit, site. Assessment, Restoration and Reclamation of Mining Influenced Soils covers processes operating in the environment as a result of mining activity, including the whole spectra of negative effects of anthropopressure and the environment, from changes in soil chemistry, changes in soil physical properties, geomechanical disturbances, and mine water.

Reclamation is the process of returning the land and water to a usable condition once mining has ceased. Because of the complete destruction that takes place during mining activities, the goal of reclamation is to bring the land back to a place that will allow natural processes to begin again.

The OSMRE Appalachian Region Reading Room provides information on the various technical aspects of mining and reclamation processes. Below is a listing of publically available studies, publications, and other documentation about topics, such as surface mine design, evaluation, environmental protection, impoundments, reclamation design, and water quality and protection.

The mining divisions are guided by statutes, regulations, reclamation advisory memorandums and technical reclamation memorandums in the implementation of their regulatory programs.

A statistical approach to evaluate the relation of coal mining, land reclamation, and surface-water quality in Ohio. This important resource examines current regulations concerning surface mining and the use of sludge on mined lands.

It also provides an overview of current land reclamation projects and presents vital information on the environmental effects of sludge use on vegetation, soil quality, water quality, and animal nutrition and health.
