Abstract
In an effort to develop a procedure for evaluating postmining land use potentials, specific mines in various regions of the United States were studied to determine the extent of current mined-land planning and to discover characteristics that are regional in nature. As part of this investigation, a 430-acre surface mine in clearfield County, PA, was studied. Established site planning principles were applied to the study site including formation of a data base, development of alternate land use plans, and evaluation of the economic, environmental, and social impacts of the land use alternatives. Key factors affecting site realization were identified along with positive suggestions for applying land use planning processes to mined-land planning.
