Characterization of mine spoil properties as a tool for premining planning

Characterization of mine spoil properties as a tool for premining planning

Proceedings 1983 Symposium on Surface Mining, Hydrology, Sedimentology and Reclamation: 47-51

In order to understand better the properties of mine spoil and the methods for creating selective placement zones, in-place sampling of several existing mine spoils was made using geophysical density logging. In addition, channel samples were obtained to characterize physical parameters relating to permeability. These were the coefficient of uniformity, coefficient of concavity, void ratio, and effective grain size. In addition, laboratory permeability tests were made on each sample.
