Mined Land Reclamation Presentations

This page makes available abstracts of recent formal and information presentations by staff of the Mined Land Reclamation Program, along with information about how to obtain copies of the full presentations.

DEC geologists and mined land specialists both teach and learn from other professionals in their fields, maintaining contact with government and industry mined land reclamation units. The principal forums for this exchange of information are professional and popular publications and professional conferences and meetings.
