Mineralogical properties of lignite overburden as they relate to mine spoil reclamation

Mineralogical properties of lignite overburden as they relate to mine spoil reclamation

SSSA Special Publication Soil Science Society of America (10): 169-191

The mineralogical properties of lignite overburdens differ significantly between the oxidized zone and the reduced zone. Reclamation of lignite mine spoil generally involves earthy materials that overlie the lignite. Hard rock types are exceptional. These overbuden materials are sometimes capped by good soils that need to be reinstalled as illustrated by the loessial soils of West Germany.
