The water users provide updates on water availability and systems. The first way in which proposed mining projects differ is the proposed method of moving or excavating the overburden.

What follows are brief descriptions of the most common methods. Open-pit mining Open-pit mining is a type of strip mining in which. Emerging issues can be associated with cultural or industrial factors or trends, such as changes in commodity demand, workforce, or technology.

The Mining Program attempts to identify issues emerging in the next 5 to 10 years and has identified production demands, workforce issues, and mining practices as areas of future concern.

Surface mining disturbs lands in two ways first by stripping the overburden and second by disposing of the spoils. The best way to reclaim land disturbed by surface mining is an integrated stripping and dispos- ing process.

It will require a long-term program to ameliorate reclaimed soils with major problems for agricultural purposes. Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit (the overburden) are removed, in contrast to underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral is removed through shafts or tunnels.
