Abstract
This report provides guidance to determine the environmental impacts associated with the surface mining of steeply pitching coal seams. Four additional issues discussed are time and motion studies of those coal mining systems employed in mining seams that pitch in excess of 25 degrees, assessment of those mining techniques, development of rationale for the mining methods employed, and identification of the reclamation practices and determining whether they are in compliance with appropriate and federal and state regulations.
