This course examines mine reclamation and considers the impacts of mines—and mining practices—on natural systems and landscapes. Through lectures and on-site visits, we’ll discuss the following topics: legislation, policies and regulations; environmental impact assessment, socioeconomic impact assessment and strategic impact assessment; land-use planning for agriculture, forestry, wildlife, fisheries, recreation, urban and industrial activities; characterization of mine wastes (physical and chemical properties); site preparation and re-vegetation; contaminant remediation, ecological risk assessment and ecotoxicology; site decommissioning, closure and environmental management systems; reclamation ecology (individual, population, community and landscape); reclamation performance and/or compliance monitoring. Concepts are presented using domestic and international case studies representing a variety of mine types.
