    Successful mine soil reclamation facilitates ecosystem recovery, minimizes adverse environmental impacts, creates additional lands for agricultural or forestry uses, and enhances the carbon (C) sequestration. Nanoparticles with extremely high reactivity and deliverability can be applied as amendments to improve soil quality, mitigate soil contaminations, ensure safe Cited by: Spoil created by surface mining can accumulate large quantities of ground-water, which can create geotechnical or regulatory problems, as well as flood active mine pits. A current study at a large ( km2), thick, (up to 90 m) spoil body in eastern Kentucky reveals important factors that control the storage and movement of water. Ground-water recharge occurs along the periphery of the spoil.

Each theme includes chapters featuring case studies involving mine sites around the world. The final section focuses specifically on case studies with successful mine site rehabilitation.

The book provides a narrative of how inert spoil can be converted to live soil. Instructive illustrations show mine sites before and after rehabilitation.

Two types of spoil were represented in the reclaimed profiles, clay spoil and shale spoil. Properties determined were: bulk density, moisture retention. The elements in plants that grow on mine spoil and reclaimed soil of mined areas indicate that care should be taken to insure proper utilization of these by: Impact of tree species on the quality of the reclaimed mine spoil was assessed using soil quality index.

Reclamation of mine spoil by planting tree species on it improved the soil quality parameters. The key indicators selected for the index were coarse fraction, pH, EC, soil organic carbon, P, Ca, S, and dehydrogenase by: Water stored in the mine spoil may provide a usable ground-water supply, and the spoil could also be engineered to provide base flow to surface-water reservoirs.

Ground-water recharge enters the spoil by way of sinking streams, ground-water flow from bedrock in contact with the mine spoil, and a specially designed infiltration basin. Environmental Pollution (Series B) 8 () Runoff Water Quality from Fresh Mine Spoil* K.

Since water resides and moves through soil pores, quantification of soil pore characteristics is a key to evaluate. The required level of soil nutrient of mine spoil is less than that of the native soil. Available nutrients (N, P, K), exchangeable cation (Ca, Mg, Na, K) of the native soil suggest that open cast mining changes the soil quality.
