Mines left abandoned and without reclamation can adversely affect the surrounding environment. Mine reclamation projects can restore those lands by minimizing and mitigating the environmental impact.

Over the past 20 years, RECON has specialized in the reclamation of active and abandoned mine sites. Our projects have included all aspects of mining and mine-related activities, including surface mines and quarries, deep mines, deep mine surface facilities, disposal site areas, and other associated support facilities.

RECON’s long-term involvement with the coal and industrial mineral industries, private individuals, and organizations, as well as federal and state agencies qualifies our team to work on reclamation projects for active or abandoned mining sites.  Our team is qualified to develop sustainable plans that integrate active or abandoned mining and quarrying operations with specific end-use development goals. These services can include conceptual planning, feasibility analysis, environmental studies, remediation technologies, erosion and sediment control techniques and construction management. All services provided by RECON are MSHA compliant and specific areas of expertise include:

  • Watershed Analysis
