Lessons and Trends in Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation

New book included with seminar registration:

Effects of Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation
on Ground and Surface Water Quality
Research and Case Histories from Indiana
Edited by John B. Comer
This volume gathers together the information learned by researchers who have studied the environmental impacts of mining and reclamation. Thirteen papers, contributed by 20 authors from federal and state agencies, private industry, and university research institutes and academic departments, address these issues. The data included in the full-color printed volume and on the accompanying CD-ROM will be useful to those who design and construct mine reclamation projects and to researchers actively involved in developing and refining today’s and tomorrow’s reclamation technologies, as well as to students and teachers in the environmental sciences.

“This book is especially important as it will aid our work in the future to design efficient and effective remediation systems for the many square miles of abandoned mine lands that still require our attention.”
—Bruce Stevens, Director of the Reclamation Division of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources
