Progressive reclamation at the Kemess South Mine : “doing what comes naturally" Davidson, Scott Charles; Stogran, S. Wade


The progressive reclamation program at the Kemess Mine focuses on the reclamation of disturbed areas using a successional approach to revegetation. The aim of the successional approach is to reduce the time required to develop a self-sustaining vegetative cover through the use of plant species that are found naturally in the area of the minesite. Research into native species is being conducted at the site as part of the annual reclamation program to allow for refinement of the reclamation program.
