Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production.
adjacent native, undisturbed site at each mine. The results of this study were used to classify infiltration rates and site characteristics in a disturbed ecosystem in a semiarid locale. This research can potentially be beneficial to managers and regulators in areas of surface coal mining with similar climates or mining …

Figure 1: Location of the three study areas Hobet 21 Operated by the Hobet Mining Company, a subsidiary of Magnum Coal, the Hobet 21 mine in Boone and Kanawha counties consists of some 4,800 ha of operating and reclaimed mine lands.
In Alabama, where my coal mining experience has been, the seams are fairly level and range in thickness from around 2' to as much as 15'. If the coal seam or strata is thick enough to stand on, it is usually called high coal; if not, it is called low coal. In the low coal mines, coal …
Consequently, environment of coal mine is profoundly deteriorated and issues regarding the surface coal mine reclamation top the priorities in environmental management. Fortunately, with the choice of proper reclamation techniques and post-reclamation management practices, drastically perturbed mined land could be restored (Shrestha and Lal, 2010).

But also open-cast mining technology is preceded by removal of all vegetation. Removal of vegetation will involve felling down of trees and other biodiversity including wildlife. In addition, the proposed coal mining project will use large quantity of fossil fuels for running machine, processing and transporting coal to other areas.
