The nature of mining processes creates a potentially negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine has closed. This impact has resulted in most countries adopting regulations to moderate these effects.
Mine reclamation is a common solution; it’s the process of restoring mined land to a natural or economically usable state. The process is put in place once mining has completed, but the preparation and planning occurs prior to a mine even being permitted or started. Mine reclamation creates useful landscapes that restore productive ecosystems and create industrial and municipal resources. In the U.S., mine reclamation is widely used as a modern practice.
