Series/Report no. British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium 1981
Abstract: Initial reclamation efforts in the mountainous area of northeastern New Mexico have proven successful at Kaiser Steel Corporation's York Canyon Coal Mines. The use of all native plant species for revegetation and a special mulching technique have minimized erosion problems. Partial highwall retention is being used to blend mined areas into the rugged physiognomy of the surrounding country. In addition to the placement of rock highwall and outcrop, rock piles have been located to create additional edge effect for the primary postmine land uses of wildlife habitat and native rangeland for cattle grazing.
