  • Surface mining for minerals is unavoidably an environmentally destructive process. The properties of mined soils make them a poor medium for plant growth and natural recolonization on these soils is slow (Sengupta 1993). Unvegetated mine spoils are devoid of vegetation and prone to erosion, resulting in further environmental degradation (Tennessee Valley Authority 1963). Reclaiming these highly disturbed soils is an important process in returning land to a stable state. This paper will discuss… CONTINUE READING
