    Starting in the s coal seams in both Kentucky coal fields have been increasingly accessed via a method known as Mountaintop Removal Mining, which is a form of surface mining that involves the topographical alteration and/or removal of a summit, summit ridge, or significant portion of a mountain, hill, or ridge in order to obtain a desired geologic material.   Excellent Maps.

The Mined Land Wildlife Area is one of the most unique areas to fish in the state. Located in the southeast portion of Kansas, there are more than 1, unique previously strip-mined lakes that range in size from acre to 50 acres. Depending on the method of how they were mined, strip pits vary in depth from shallow to deep with steep sided banks.

Physical Characteristics of the Disturbed Areas There are two basic types of strip-mining in the eastern Kentucky coal field: contour-or rim-stripping, and area-stripping.

Auger-mining usually. This watershed with multiple streams drains square miles of land in six counties: Athens, Gallia, Hocking, Jackson, Meigs, and Vinton. Coal extraction over nearly years in the area has badly damaged the watershed.

On a map of the watershed below, strip-mined areas are indicated in dark blue, while deep-mined areas are shown in red. near coal-field areas, therefore, the utilities provide a large, ever- increasing market for large amounts of strip-mined coal as the lowest cost fuel available, and this assured market has been re­ sponsible not only for increased strip-coal production, but also for the improvement in strip-mining technology.

Southeast Missouri Lead has been mined in southeast Missouri since beforewhen French explorers developed deposits under land grants from the French crown. Lead has been produced from Mississippi Valley-type deposits, or MVT's, in several world-class districts: the Old Lead Belt, Mine La Motte and Fredericktown and the Viburnum Trend.A compre- hensive survey of 72 areas in southeastern Ohio was conducted from April to July and additional data obtained from June to October to evaluate the survival of 37 species of vegetation which had been planted on strip-mined land and which could give food and cover to wildlife.

As large-scale strip mining ensued there from the early s through the s, a substantial land area near Paradise, Kentucky – encompassing some thousands of acres – would be stripped. In those days, especially during the s and most of the s, strip mine regulation and land reclamation, then governed by state laws, were minimal at best.
