Abstract: Ranching is a signficant land use in the Southern Interior of BC. In recent decades, acreages of both grassland and forest land have been disturbed by mining and, as reclamation proceeds, returned to forage production for the purpose of livestock use. Numerous issues surround the capability and suitability of waste rock and tailings sites for grazing. Despite a large amount of research being done on the revegetation of mined land, grazing as a post-mining land use has received limited study. Research is still needed to determine proper stocking rates, season and intensity of grazing for optimum livestock management systems. This paper presents the issues of site capability and suitability for livestock use, potential conflicts with other proposed end land uses and post-mining land management requirements.
