Abstract: Various reclamation techniques are currently utilized to reclaim lands disturbed from mining. The cost effectiveness and success rate varies considerably between techniques. In order to determine which technique is most applicable to a specific reclamation program, it is necessary to review and compare the economics, constraints, and additional parameters for the various techniques. Reclamation techniques currently utilized at various base metal mines in B.C. are reviewed. Cost comparison of various reclamation methods such as: aerial and ground application of seed and fertilizer, biogeoengineering, and planting seedlings are discussed. Factors, such as the size of the area to be reclaimed, which will determine the cost effectiveness of various techniques, are discussed. In addition, specific parameters and constraints of each technique is outlined. Examples of these reclamation techniques are given.
