British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium

An integrated reclamation management plan for the Highland Valley mining complex Lloyd, Cecilia Jane, 1959-

Abstract

In the Highland Valley, reclamation of large areas of mining disturbance is being undertaken by several mining companies. Methods and objectives for this reclamation are being studied. Soil and vegetation surveys are used to classify disturbed materials into site types which have characteristic reclamation requirements. By integrating site type information, land-use options and reclamation research, reclamation techniques and objectives are proposed for each site type. This approach is suitable for the design of reclamation programs for extensive areas when physical conditions are diverse and mining operations complex.
