Abstract: Kaiser Resources Limited operates a 4 million ton per year surface coal mine in the southeastern corner of British Columbia. Since 1969, Kaiser's Environmental Services Department has been responsible for the rehabilitation of some 1400 acres of land disturbed by mining and exploration from valley bottom elevations of 3300 feet to steep mountain terrain at 6900 feet elevation. Some of the reclamation problems encountered, especially at elevations above 5000 feet, are very steep slopes, dark, highly erodible spoils and the availability of suitable revegetation species. The use of modified agricultural and forestry techniques has provided an encouraging degree of success in both establishment and maintenance of initial ground cover.
