NTIS: PB/84-178680 Available for Reference At Bureau of Mines Libraries :351 pages
The objective of this project was to quantitatively assess the slope stability problems associated with coal surface mining in the eastern coal province and to recommend spoil placement techniques that provide for slope stability. Data were collected from 11 minesites in Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Volume II contains the field data of each site collected during the study. The data are presented in a separate section for each site. Each section contains a site description, a review of the applicable regulations at the time the site was mined and reclaimed, and a review of the mining and reclamation method. A review of the site geology, a stratigraphic section, and a geologic structure map is provided for each site.
