Abstract
A 2,338-acre mine site near Live Oak, Florida, was studied to determine the potential for reclamation and development. Present land uses of the area surrounding the abandoned mine were analyzed along with locations of abandoned cuts, spoil piles and tailings, and land ownership patterns. An abandoned economic analysis of the surrounding five-county area was conducted to determine what types of industries might relocate at the mine site. Methods commonly used to reclaim abandoned mines were discussed along with possible interim and end land uses; financial incentives available from the federal, state, and local sources were discussed. Seven planning scenarios were developed, identifying 861 acres as suitable for industrial and commercial development and 964 acres as suitable for woodlands and agriculture. It was estimated that reclamation of industrial sites would cost $1.13 million and reclamation of areas to woodland-agriculture would cost $142,000.
