      INVESTIGATION OF USE OF LIMESTONE AND LIGNITE FOR THE TREATMENT OF ACID MINE DRAINAGE”, by Puneet Sarna, surface mining, underground mining or coal refuse piles that is characteristically highly acidic, with elevated levels of dissolved metals. It is characterized by low pH and increased acidity. Drilling is the traditional and still the most common method used in coal exploration. Most coal companies rely heavily on borehole data to evaluate their mine properties. However for the Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) and Coal Bed Methane (CBM) it is necessary to map the subsurface coal and to detect other spatial properties of.

      Mined land is reclaimed for future use. The objective of this activity is to investigate how plants will grow on a reclaimed landscape. Over a period of days, you will learn how overburden is incorporated into the landscape after it has been removed during the mining beginning, discuss vocabulary terms: overburden, stockpile, grading, soil types, seeding. RECLAMATION OF STRIP MINE SPOILS For the past twenty-five years concern for the destructive effects of strip mining' for coal has been mounting to the extent that the President has contemplated federal regulation.2 This note examines the causes of this concern and the costs and benefits of .

      Other mine operation alternatives for the major components of a surface mine were considered including overburden removal, lignite-loading, lignite transportation, and reclamation. The no action alternative could be implemented by the permit applicants or as a result of EPA's denial to issue NPDES permits for the proposed mine and power plant. Beneath North Dakotan soil is enough lignite coal to provide us with another years of reliable electricity, but another valuable resource capable of adding billions to North Dakota's energy economy – rare-earth elements – could also be down there.

Conditions in reclaimed spoils at surface lignite mines. The general geologic setting of the mines studied was determined to present serious limitations to the application of the method. The basic difficulty encountered was the lack of resistivity contrast within subsurface materials at the mines.

[Grand Forks, N.D.]: North Dakota Geological Survey, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, State or province government publication, Internet resource: Document Type: Book, Internet Resource: All Authors / Contributors: Alan E Kehew; Gerald H Groenewold.

NIOSHTIC-2 Publications Search - - Earth Resistivity Investigations in Reclaimed Surface Lignite Mine Spoils. Earth resistivity surveys using the wenner electrode configuration were made in unmined areas and reclaimed spoils at three surface lignite mines in western North Dakota.

Tadkeshwar lignite mine, located in Surat district of Gujarat state, India is one such mine which is facing land slide problem because of movement of groundwater in a segment of the mine. This paper describes the results of electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) carried out in the mine lease area to locate groundwater potential : S.

Rai, S. Thiagarajan, Dewashish Kumar. In this paper is studied the dynamics of the soil microbial structure and function, and enzymatic activities during a chronosequence (0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 years) after reclamation of coal mine areas with wheat (Triticum aestivum).Due to the homogeneity induced by monoculture all over the sites, similarity in the dynamics of structural and functional soil attributes was by: Mining activities for mineral resources over the years have resulted in major soil damage.

Due the removal process of desired mineral materials, soil textures have been destroyed, various nutrient cycles have been disturbed, and microbial communities have been altered, affecting vegetation and leading to the destruction of wide areas of land in many countries.

Abstract. An electrical resistivity survey was completed at the Landusky mine. The survey consisted of 15 lines on the surface of the reclaimed Suprise pit, Queen Rose pit. the American Society for Testing and Materials lignite is a brownish-black, low-rank coal, which has a heating value less than MJ kg−1, determined on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis.

According to this definition lignite occurs in two subclasses: lignite A (− MJ kg−1) and lignite B (less than MJ kg−1). Outside. Lignite Mining & Reclamation Process ‐ Increased surface mining in the early s led to passage of the first reclamations laws in the s in the East ‐ There are st acres of abandoned mined lands or “orphan spoils” still in North Dakota.

Much of this land is managed by the Game & Fish Department for wildlife habitat and. The Surface Mining Act placed a levy per ton on all coal produced in the USA.

This fund can be used to finance the restoration of areas that were not reclaimed in the past and other action needed to alleviate off-site impacts of the unreclaimed areas. From a new consideration has been given to the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act. The reclamation of surface (opencast) coal mines is not always successful; there remains a legacy of degraded land that burdens local communities.

This article evaluates a community-oriented, low-cost means of geoecological regeneration, the “Cradle for Nature” strategy, which uses mosaic tree planting to foster positive natural ecological processes. Alan Kehew currently works at the Department of Geosciences, Western Michigan University.

The study sites were the Center, Indian Head, and Falkirk Mines. Automatic interpretation of the curves was accomplished with the method of Zohdy and Bisdorf ().
