Development of Pre-mining and Reclamation Plan Rationale for Surface Coal Mines. Volume I of III the Rationale for Data Acquisitions.

NTIS: PB 258 042 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :163 pages
Volume I of this three-volume report is the result of development of a comprehensive, coordinated approach to site data-acquisition activities to produce key plans and reports during the evaluation and development of a surface coal mine. A logic diagram illustrates activities in the planning and decisionmaking process from exploration through post-mining monitoring. The report briefly discusses major elements, other than the site environment, which influence development of mining and reclamation plans and refers to other readily available literature for details outside the scope of this study. The essence of the rationale is shown to be the employment of necessary skills at the proper time to evaluate specific data requirements and to integrate them into a cost- effective program to produce initial and major feasibility reports, mining and reclamation plans, and the environmental impact assessment.
