9 The terms restoration and rehabilitation are often used synonymously with reclamation. However, restoration implies that a given site is returned to the exact conditions that existed before the disturbance, and rehabilitation indicates that the disturbed land is returned to conditions that conform to a prior use plan (often agricultural). In fact, it is often neither possible nor desirable to return disturbed land to its previous condition or use. Reclamation is often considered only in association with surface mining, but, as reflected in the previous discussion, the activities of underground mining may also necessitate reclamation.

As soon as a decision for closure is reached, a complete inventory of all equipment, parts, and supplies should be made. Using this inventory, plans can be made for appropriate disposition of each item. Many items can be resold or transferred to another mine owned by the company. In the case of large underground mining equipment, such as coal longwall units, it may be less expensive to abandon the equipment underground than to recover it to the surface. Sealing of Underground Mines Seals for underground mines must be designed in accordance with good engineering practice, and in conformance with applicable regulations.

The mine plan is established to specifically extract ore, and little poor rock is excavated. In open pits, the poor rock piles are created by using dump trucks and bulldozers. The trucks back to the edge and end dump. 36 Waste Reduction in Metals Manufacturing The dozers push the dumped rock over the side, and berm the edge to give the truck drivers a sense of where the edge is. This action causes the level piles (similar to large peninsula mesas) to grow progressively outward from the mine in a planned strategic method.
