Open pit mining is a type of strip mining in which the ore deposit extends very deep in the ground, necessitating the removal of layer upon layer of overburden and ore. In many cases, logging of trees and clear cutting or burning of vegetation above the ore deposit may precede removal of the overburden. The
Surface mining is a generic term describing several methods of mining mineral deposits from the surface, which entails removing the vegetation, top soil, and rock above the mineral deposit, removing the deposit, and reclaiming the affected land for postmining land use.
Dense vegetation is a common phenomenon in minefields. In many countries and not only in tropical ones, vegetation is a large problem facing de mining and often poses major difficulties to the de mining efforts. Lush vegetation spreads over uncultivated areas very quickly and such vegetation impedes the work of manual de miners.
AND FERTILIZER APPLICATIONS ON THE ESTABLISHMENT AND GROWTH OF VEGETATION ON SURFACE COAL MINING LAND 1 by Fred J. Brenner 2 Abstract. The objective of the current study was to determine the effect of different mulches, lime and fertilizer applications on the establishment and growth of vegetation on
Reaches that had undergone narrowing due to sand mining induced incision were colonized by a range of pioneer vegetation species and had higher plant species diversities compared with the least impacted river sections that exhibited the least diversity in community composition .
Furthermore, certain types of classified plant require registration with the State Mining Engineer before they can be used on a Western Australian mine site. See r. 6.1 of the Mines Safety and Inspection Regulations 1995 for more details, including definitions.
