Abstract
This report summarizes the problems of topsoil handling as related to present requirements of law and current equipment availability. The most prevalent topsoiling systems are reviewed along with a listing of advantages, disadvantages, and best features of each system. Seven mining regions are included along with an analysis of prevailing land use, types of soils, and attendant physical, chemical, and biological characteristics. There are several probable areas of future research outlined that can benefit mining, minimize the social impact of mined lands, and speed the return of mined lands to more productive long-term use.
