Abstract
A 2-year investigation disclosed 469 hazardous sites resulting from past zinc-lead mining in the vicinity of Joplin, Missouri. Aerial-photo analysis, fieldwork, library research, and personal interviews were conducted to locate and describe the abandoned mining areas and their associated hazards. Open shafts, subsidence pits, and other mine-related dangers exist in areas easily accessible to the public. In addition, some surface reclamation has been effected by gradual removal and use of mine and mill waste-rock, with subsequent leveling and reuse of the land. Other than backfilling shafts, nothing has been done to stabilize undermined areas. A comprehensive program of hazard control and monitoring for the entire study area is warranted.
