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, the Chinook Mine-west field, located in western Indiana, was studied. The Chinook Mine is presently operated by Amax Coal Company and has been in continuous operation since 1928 under various ownerships. The status of current reclamation and land use planning was reviewed. In addition, site planning principles were applied to the active mine area that include the formation of a data base and development of postmining land use plan alternatives. Key factors affecting site potential realization for midwestern area mines were identified along with suggestions for applying land use planning processes to mined-land planning.
