Grant Ritchie has over 40 years’ experience in the reclamation of land for arable use after Opencast Mining operations. Having originally worked on various sites for British Coal our restoration operations expanded in after witnessing the restoration process on other sites. Grant was driven to improve on the current processes and results so invested in specialist machinery to develop a. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

Restoration of a landscape disturbed by opencast mining operations is mostly viewed in technical or economic perspectives only. Even though the public focused only on the forestry and agricultural aspects of restoration previously, there has been a recent interest in nature conservation and by: These negative impacts are now being recognized and this book shows how corrective action can be taken.
The introduction of sustainable mining requires mitigation strategies that start during the mine planning stage and extend to after mineral extraction has. mining methods such as strip mining, open pit mining, opencast mining and quarrying start from the earth’s surface and keep exposure to the surface during the extraction period.
Disruption of the surface significantly affects the soil, fauna, flora and surface water, thereby influencing all types of land use. Our study is among the very few in the world concerning the application of geostatistics in the restoration of the relief of land transformed by open pit mining activities.
Full article (This article belongs to the Special Issue Remote Sensing of Opencast Mining Land Use and Land Cover for Planning, Rehabilitation and Closure). Summary. The restoration of land productivity is an integral part of the restoration of a former mining site.
The mineral extraction and reclamation process must ensure return of sustainable ecosystem to former degraded land. The revegetation of mine spoil by tree cover stabilizes an ecosystem for the long term via their ameliorative effects on soil quality improving both potential commercial and aesthetic.
restoration ofland after opencast mining book Opencast lignite coal areas are either reclaimed for agriculture, forestry or recreational purposes or are restored in conjunction with the establishment of nature reserves.
In this chapter, technical applications for ensuring reclamation and measures to initiate new vegetation are explained. Abstract. Land reclamation after surface mining goes back half a century or more and, in Britain and the Commonwealth, was often a mandatory clause in leases for surface mining undertakings, but frequently an alternative clause was available by which compensation of so much per acre could be paid in place of land restoration.
Mining causes soil damage and destruction. In the process of removing the desired mineral material, original soils become lost, or buried by wastes. In many countries legislation now requires that surface soils be conserved and replaced, but there is a vast heritage of degraded land left by past mining that requires restoration.
• restoration of land surface of sufficient quality to support pre-mining land use potential, • restoration of the ecological function of mined land and in the case of previously.
1. Introduction. In surface mining, soil and rock overlying or hosting a shallow ore deposit is physically removed to access the resource.
Surface mining comprises different practices − strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop-removal mining − and accounts for more than 80% of ore mined each year (Ramani, ).Surface mining disturbs the landscape and impacts habitat integrity.
Reclamation of opencast mines typically involves replacement of overburden that was removed or repositioned to access buried coal layers. When excavated areas are built up, re-landscaping or recontouring is completed along with drainage control measures.
Recontouring will be guided by mine plan objectives (i.e., the intended end use for the land). The planned restoration of an abandoned East Ayrshire opencast coal mine will provide a timely boost to the region’s economy and revive that part of its landscape.
Work to restore land at the abandoned Spireslack opencast mine will commence in the coming weeks by the same 15 strong team currently working on a similar project at Ponesk. Reclamation processes. As part of the life cycle of a surface coal mine, completed mine areas must undergo 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.
Remediation and Management of Degraded Lands presents the program of the first International Conference on the Remediation and Management of Degraded Lands. This collection reviews the extent of resource debasement and offers solutions for their restoration. The part first section deals with mine management and rehabilitation.
Topics include the devastating results of open-cut mining, open Reviews: 1. Mining companies in South Africa are required by law to rehabilitate land after open cast mining, but this rarely leads to farming communities on affected lands being fully compensated.
Feasibility studies by mining companies must recognize fully communities’ lost agricultural revenue potential so stakeholders can develop a sustainable and. The importance of restoration continues to grow, and this book integrates the restoration of forest functions into landscape conservation plans.
The global conservation organization WWF has made forest landscape restoration a key topic and priority for its environmental work. Opencast Mining Reclamation. Pages Ibarra, José Manuel.
Land rehabilitation as a part of environmental remediation is the process of returning the land in a given area to some degree of its former state, after some process (industry, natural disasters, etc.) has resulted in its projects and developments will result in the land becoming degraded, for example mining, farming and forestry.
The legal liability of the owner of land on which opencast mining has taken place for the post-mining restoration of that land has not been tested in the courts and there is therefore no judicial guidance on what, if any, such liability may be.
Nevertheless, under section (1)(a) of the Act a council can serve an enforcement notice on. A taskforce set up after the collapse of a major Scottish coal-mining firm has been discussing the restoration of opencast mines in Scotland.

Firing of shots in fire areas/in vicinity of hot strata in opencast Coal mines [DGMS (Tech) Circular 4/]: Recently, in a mechanized opencast coal mine, where extraction of developed pillars by deep hole blasting was being carried out, one of the shot hole left charged, prematurely detonated after a lapse of two and half hours.Opencast mines are Restoration allows no land use flexibility and incurs the greatest cost.
There are various perspectives regarding use constitutes the best use of land. Post mining site reclamation and restoration is the final and crucial stage, which requires proper planning.Restoration after opencast coal mining can create opportunities for a change in land use, particularly on those sites where dereliction clearance has formed part of the mining operations.
If land is not required for agricultural use it can provide infrastructure or recreational facilities in localities where these are in short supply.
