Abstract
The field treatments of surface-mine spoil in a long-range combination field and greenhouse study are emphasized. Benefits of reclaiming both surface-mine spoil and coal mine refuse include partial neutralization of acid spoil and refuse materials; increase in moisture-holding capacity and pore space of moisture-holding materials; yields of forage that compared favorably with yields from undisturbed pastures and fields; and use of large amounts of fly ash. Information tabulated includes composition of sly ash used, chemical analysis of surface-mine spoil at treated sites, and costs of reclamation.
