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 Indian Head Mine, which is located in Mercer County, North Dakota, was studied. The Indian Head Mine is presently operated by American Coal Corp., Western Div., and has been in operation since 1917 under various ownerships. The status of current reclamation and postmining land use planning was reviewed. In addition, the relationship between mine planning and public planning in an area impacted by energy development was investigated. Finally, key factors affecting site potential realization for western surface mines were identified.
