Impact Of Surface Coal Mining

how mining practices affect soil hydraulic properties and to assess, using a modeling approach, how the altered soil prop-erties affect soil erosion. The primary objectives of this study were to: 1. Determine soil hydraulic properties resulting from reclamation management practices at the Rosebud Mine, a typical surface coal mine in the western

    Dec 01, 2020 Effects of coal mining. Surface mines (sometimes called strip mines) were the source of about 62% of the coal mined in the United States in 2019. These mining operations remove the soil and rock above coal deposits, or seams. The largest surface mines in the United States are in Wyoming's Powder River Basin, where coal deposits are close to the
